How it all began...

Founded in 1985 by R. C. (Bob) Pearson, today Statewide Oil Distributors and Southern Cross Lubes, remains a family owned and run business, with Bob as Chairman and his son Todd Pearson, as Managing Director.


As one of the largest lubricant distributors in the Asia Pacific region, we are highly regarded for our service capabilities as well as our ability to deliver innovative solutions to customers in Western Australia, South Australia and the southern areas of the Northern Territory.   Our distributor teams are guided by the principles of integrity, respect, achievement and innovation. These values drive our work culture and are key factors in achieving our vision along with our staff’s passion for the job. We measure success by customer satisfaction, ensuring our customers regard us not simply as a supplier, but as key partners in business. We are determined to deliver on our commitments.

Previous winners of the ExxonMobil Circle of Excellence Award, we are proud of not only the services we provide, but importantly, how we operate within our environment and community. Safety is a key focus and is always at the forefront of our decision making. We hold strong core community values and our community has led us to establish relationships with a range of organisations, including but not limited too, The Zac Pearson Legacy Fund, the Perth Blood Institute and the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

Our experience in lubrication distribution in Australia is second to none. We also hold the advantage of a partnership with the global leading energy business of ExxonMobil, which enables us to deliver world class technology in lubrication to our customers.  Our service is fully integrated from sales and administration all the way to warehousing and logistics. This means we are not only able to deliver the best service but ensure we are consistently adding value.

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.

We understand the need to have your investments meet high levels of return on investment as well as meeting the community’s  expectations in the area you operate. With highly skilled business managers and engineers across Australia and access to the world’s most advanced analytical laboratories for lubricants, Perkal is ready to partner with you to solve these complex problems.
