Gulf Oil opens new plant in Argentina

The Gulf Oil International Group is opening a new state-of-the-art blending plant in Argentina.
The new plant is located on the Acceso Oeste highway, about 38 kilometers from the country’s capital, Buenos Aires, which logistically offers Gulf products an important competitive edge in the region.
The new plant has been built on a 20,000 m2 area in the town of La Reja, a province of Buenos Aires. It is located in an exclusively industrial zone.

“The new plant is the result of nearly a decade of strong business growth. Delivery in a timely manner has always been one of the great attributes of the company,” said CEO of Gulf Oil Argentina, Emilio Alvarez Cañedo. “So it was decided to build a new plant.”
It has an initial production target of 6,000 tons a year. For the next three years production is estimated at 9.600 tons p/a with it ultimately planned to reach 15,000 tons p/a in five years, from a single shift.
Capacity increase apart, the major improvement over Gulf’s old plant is that the production process is now fully automated. The design concept of the plant was to deliver an automated assembly line, where raw material enters at one side and finished product for distribution leaves at the other.
