From 2015 onward, Shell will be BMW's recommended global supplier for aftermarket engine oils for its vehicle brands--BMW, BMW i, BMW M, Mini and BMW Motorrad.
The collaboration means that Shell will produce and supply BMW's branded engine oils, making it available to the German carmaker's network of more than 3,500 dealers in more than 140 countries.
"We are honored to become BMW's recommended supplier of aftermarket engine oil," said Shell Lubricants executive vice president Mark Gainsborough. "We look forward to jointly supplying, distributing and marketing these oils, beginning in 2015."
Shell's appointment as BMW's aftermarket engine oils supplier means the German carmaker has terminated its association with Castrol, a partnership that lasted for 15 years since 1999.
