Chevron Products Company, maker of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, recently held its second annual Carrier Recognition Awards
at Hotel Zaza, Houston Texas on February 6, 2013. The focus of the event was to communicate, reinforce and emphasize Chevron’s commitment to safety, performance and customer service by recognizing partners that exemplify these values. The awards were based on performance during 2012.
“The Carrier Recognition Awards are issued to our carrier partners that help elevate the perception of Chevron and our lubricant brands through a combination of safety, service and performance,” said Barbara Burger, vice president Supply Chain and Base Oil with Chevron Lubricants. “Although our award criteria is difficult to achieve, we are very proud that so many of our carriers have met or exceeded the service levels needed to qualify. We want to congratulate all our carrier partners for the fine work they do, but in particular, our Carrier Recognition Award winners, for their exceptional performance in 2012.”
