The new contract dubbed the Perodua Genuine Oil agreement will see Perodua using PETRONAS’ SL/SM grade oil at all its service outlets nationwide worth RM45 million per annum for 5 years with immediate effect.
“This deal is indeed very special for us as it strengthens the already good relationship that we are enjoying with PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad and I believe that this agreement will usher in a new chapter of cooperation between both parties,” Perodua managing Director, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said in his speech at the ceremony today.
The agreement was signed by Aminar and PDB’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Amir Hamzah Azizan.
Aminar added that the deal emphasizes Perodua’s confidence in the quality and reliability of PDB’s products and services.

With PETRONAS’ seven state-of-the-art blending facilities worldwide including Italy and two world-class research and development centres, PDB is committed to develop products of international quality for its customers.

We aim to be the number one in Malaysia by 2015 through effective marketing initiatives, backed by our technological expertise and strong support from our strategic global partnerships.”
“Today’s signing ceremony between PDB and Perodua is certainly a step forward to reinforce PDB’s position as the Brand of 1st Choice,” he added.
Both Perodua and PDB have a long standing business partnership since 2003.
