Mobil oil Australia –oil distributors: Southern Cross Lubes

Southern Cross Lubes (SCL) is a leading lubricant distributor for Mobil oil. Australia-based, SCL was established in 2007 by 2 directors, Anthony Van Brugel and Ray Blayney, who at the time were owners of a fuel marketing distributor in Gippsland, GPG - a reseller of Mobil oil Australia. Back then SCL was appointed to be the authorised oil distributors in Victoria and Tasmania by ExxonMobil, to distribute for Mobil oil Australia to the fuel marketing distributors and manage existing relationships.

These humble beginnings saw the lubricant distributor business trading out of a single office of a distribution warehouse in Sunshine. The entire SCL team was made up of the 2 directors, a General Manager, an account manager (Craige Milward, 2007 – present) and an administration assistant.

In late 2007, ExxonMobil (Mobil oil Australia) made the decision to move to a full distributor model within Australia and went through a referral process whereby all direct customers were referred to the authorised oil distributors in each state. This saw significant growth for the lubricant distributor team at SCL in just a few short months after inception. 


The referral process was carried out in stages, and the first accounts to be transferred to SCL were the independent workshops, followed by franchise car dealers and then industrial customers.

In July 2011 the most significant event took place in SCL’s history to date. The business changed hands from the 2 original directors and was bought outright by a New Zealand family company, HWR. Following the takeover, SCL moved to a larger office in Port Melbourne in October of the same year.
November 2014 saw another move for SCL to its current location in Ajax Road, Altona. The site was already home to SCL’s warehouse as well as the sister company, Petrogas.

Most recently, SCL has been appointed the authorised distributor of Mobil oil Australia in NSW - in addition to the existing Victoria and Tasmania areas. With this announcement also comes the success of being named oil distributors for the Global Marine supply contract, servicing the marine ports across the eastern seaboard. Additionally, we are investing in a bulk tank facility on site at Ajax Road in early 2016.
