“Our data shows time and again that Duckhams is still one of the most recognised lubricant brands amongst automotive consumers and trade professionals in many markets,” commented KR Venkataraman, Global CEO, Duckhams.
“Duckhams is here to drive innovation and that fits perfectly with our strategic plans — we are inspired by their values and aspirations and look forward to the journey ahead,” noted Shaun Smith, General Manager, Emirates for Universal Tyres.
