The Original Parts Warehouse Inc. (OPW), an independent distributor of parts and lubricants to the heavy-duty and automotive aftermarket, has signed a three-year agreement with Shell Canada Products and Pennzoil-Quaker State Canada Incorporated (collectively, “Shell Lubricants”) to serve as a Shell Lubricants Alliance Distributor in Ontario. Per the agreement, OPW will distribute Shell Canada Products and Pennzoil-Quaker State Canada Incorporated’s branded automotive, transport, aviation and industrial lubricants, including those sold under the Shell Rotella, Pennzoil and Quaker State brands, throughout the Province of Ontario.
“Our Lubricants business has grown through hard work, dedication to one brand and a relationship with Shell Lubricants that is built on honesty, commitment and a shared vision of the future,” said Larry Burns, Vice President of Operations for OPW. “We are pleased to be able to offer Shell’s leading lubricants products and services to an ever wider array of customers.”
OPW, a privately held company, was founded in 1999 as a sales, warehousing and distribution organization for heavy-duty truck and trailer dealers. Today, family-run OPW has eight locations across Ontario, and its customer base has expanded to include municipalities, transit authorities, industrial organizations and manufacturing enterprises. As a Shell Lubricants Alliance Distributor, the firm will distribute lubricant products to Shell Associate Distributors, Warehouse Distributors, Buying Groups and independent automotive workshops in Ontario. OPW is headquartered in Concord, Ontario.
“We have built our business on the belief that each and every customer is No. 1,” continued Burns. “With OPW, our customers have the support of a live, local customer-service specialist who can make quick decisions and help take the complexity out of their lubricants purchases.”
Shell has been operating in Canada since 1911, and the lubricants businesses of Shell Canada Products and Pennzoil-Quaker State Canada Incorporated are together the country’s leading supplier of consumer lubricants. Shell was recently named the No. 1 provider of consumer and commercial lubricants in Canada and the global lubricants market share leader for the fourth year running by independent consulting and research firm Kline & Company.
