Enoc Lubricants and Grease Manufacturing Plant (Elomp), part of the marketing business segment of Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc), said that its Jebel Ali facility has achieved three global certifications in quality, health and safety.

The accreditations were presented to the company by DNV GL, an international certification body and classification society with the main expertise in technical assessment, advisory, and risk management.

The facility achieved the ISO 9001:2008 for quality management system; the ISO 14001:2004 for environmental management system; and OHSAS 18001:2007 for occupational health and safety management system, all internationally recognised standardised certifications which translate into the highest level of products and services for its customers, said a statement from the company.

These certifications highlight Elomp Jebel Ali’s facility as a key facet for Enoc’s leadership in the lubricants industry, after the commissioning of the main plant in Fujairah, UAE, it added.

Elomp in Jebel Ali has a dedicated 5,000 sq m manufacturing facility located within the Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza). The facility is capable of expanding its capacity to 25,000 metric tonnes to 50,000 metric tonnes, through operational efficiencies, said the statement.   

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer at Enoc, said: “With an annual blending capacity of 300,000 metric tonnes per annum at both the Jebel Ali and Fujairah plants, Elomp serves customers across the automotive, marine transport and industrial sectors; and because of our extensive, cosmopolitan consumer base, it is essential that we ensure that our products adhere to the highest standards.”

“Achieving these certifications proves that Enoc’s products and operations observe global benchmarks in quality, health and safety,” he said.

Zaid Alqufaidi, managing director, Enoc Marketing, said: “Over the last six months, Elomp has undergone a rigorous audit in every facet of its operations, to ensure that all stakeholders - be it management, employees, customers and the environment- are aligned with the facility’s strategy.”
“These certifications demonstrate our commitment to excellence; build on our achievements in Elomp Fujairah, and help us achieve a high degree of product differentiation,” he said.

Mohammed Sadek, director of Enoc Lubricants Marketing, said: “We have achieved significant market presence by providing innovative and premium lubrication solutions, which are tailored to enhance the efficiency of motor vehicles, and improve their durability and performance.”

“Through our integrated approach to blending, analysis and filling, Elomp manufactures a wide range of lubricants independently and caters to the needs of clients from over 60 countries in the Middle East region, Africa, South East Asia and the Indian Subcontinent,” he said. – TradeArabia News Service
