Chevron Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 22, 2014, Bloomberg reported that Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., which is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (Chevron), launched its new Chevron PitPack easy-dispense motor oil system that helps professional motor oil installers in increasing their efficiency to store and deliver oil to the customers. As per the article, the new PitPack system is capable of saving up to 89% landfill waste with the use of six-gallon plastic bags and recyclable corrugate boxes of motor oil instead of individual plastic quart bottles. This system reduces the time needed by a car in a service bay by dispensing motor oil quickly from the boxes via a High - flow, no drip tap, said the article. The Company claims that this solution will help professional installers in managing the complexity associated with the growing number of premium products (synthetics, synthetic blends, and high mileage).
