Shell Lubricants Selected as Supplier of the Year by Chrysler Group Honored as top performer working with Mopar

Houston--JUNE 27, 2013: Shell Lubricants was recently honored by Chrysler Group LLC as the 2012 Supplier of the Year for the collaboration with Mopar, Chrysler's service, parts and customer-care brand. The recognition came during Chrysler's 3rd Annual Strategy Meeting and Supplier Awards Ceremony held June 5, 2013 at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan. The honor was bestowed on the lubricant industry leader based on the company's commitment to sustainable development, honesty, integrity and superior delivery of quality, cost, supply and innovation.

"It is an honor for Shell Lubricants to be recognized by Chrysler Group for our outstanding relationship with Mopar," said Istvan Kapitany, President, Commercial Fuels and Lubricants for the Americas. "This award validates our mission to collaborate closely with customers throughout the design phase of new technologies to provide effective lubricants to help them develop and grow their business successfully. This is a team effort with hundreds of individuals within Shell that touch the Chrysler/Mopar account and work diligently to achieve the success as evidenced by this honor."

Award recipients were determined based on an evaluation of each company's External Balanced Scorecard performance in 2012 - a rating system that evaluates supplier performance in areas such as quality, delivery, cost, warranty and partnership - and input from Chrysler Group senior leadership.

"We congratulate Shell Lubricants on receiving the Supplier of the Year Award for their dedication to Mopar," said Sig Huber, Director of Supplier Relations and Mopar Purchasing, Chrysler Group LLC. "We appreciate their integrity and commitment to sustainable development."

Shell provides Factory Fill Lubricants, technical collaboration as well as dealer-level program and marketing support across the Chrysler Group.
