Mobil oil Australia –oil distributors: Southern Cross Lubes

Over the past 124 years, Mobil has been at the forefront of lubricant technology in Australia.

Our history dates back to the first oil used in steam engines and has advanced rapidly to current day expertise such as polyalphaolefins. Developments such as these have facilitated the next leap into synthetic technologies and have been paramount for lubricants to meet the demands of high performance engines and machinery.

Today, supply chain viability and innovation is crucial for all companies to exist and prosper. To ensure its reliability of supply, Mobil continues its long standing multi-billion dollar manufacturing operations globally with Singapore, one of the most strategically located ports for supply to Asia Pacific. 

Since 1985 Perkal, trading as Statewide Oil Distributors has been a trusted channel partner of ExxonMobil, delivering high quality Mobil lubricants to Australians.

This long-standing relationship has ensured that Australian businesses have access to lubricants manufactured by a global leader of innovation and engage local expertise and enjoy excellent customer experiences. In 2018 Perkal made its most significant commercial acquisition to date, Perkal invested in another long standing Mobil partner, Southern Cross Lubes. This now makes Perkal the largest Mobil lubricants distribution partner for ExxonMobil in the Asia Pacific region, showing the commitment of both Mobil and Perkal to Australian Industry.


Southern Cross Lubes is an Australian family owned and operated business that has been managed by Mr Bob Pearson and his son Todd since the company's foundation days. Our company exists because of the continued support by our valued customers and the relationships we have built with them. Our business will continue to strategically invest into Australia as we continue to examine technically advanced lubricant solutions which we can offer our clients from Mobil and Perkal’s global and local partnerships.
