General Manager of SOL PETROLEUM JAMAICA LIMITED, Robert Jackson

Sol is pleased to confirm the appointment of SOL PETROLEUM JAMAICA LIMITED as the new Macro Distributor (MD) of Shell’s Lubricants in Jamaica.

This appointment deepens the already well-established commercial relationship between Sol and Shell and further improves Sol’s position as the largest MD of Shell lubricants in the Caribbean. In Jamaica, Sol will provide a full range of lubricants, including synthetic high-performance products.

Sol is one of the largest privately held petroleum distribution companies operating in the Caribbean basin. In its eight years of existence, Sol has grown into a dynamic, customer-focused business operating in 19 markets and across all segments of the petroleum distribution business. 

Gerard Cox, Chief Executive Officer of The Sol Group, said that Sol was delighted to have entered the Jamaican market and confirmed that customers stood to benefit from the proven Shell/Sol partnership which continued to deliver the best in both product and service to markets across the region.

“This is a significant achievement for The Sol Group, and we look forward to providing great service and value to the Jamaican communities where we do business. We have demonstrated our commitment to delivering unparalleled service to the petroleum sector across the region, and will continue to leverage our partnership with Shell to offer customers the best lubricants in the world.”

Newly appointed General Manager of SOL PETROLEUM JAMAICA LIMITED, Robert Jackson, remarked that he was very honoured to lead the Sol team in Jamaica and looked forward to the advancement of the already established Shell Lubricants brand there.

“Sol will respond to the needs of all new and existing customers and will continue to build on the strong legacy which Shell has established in Jamaica. As in other territories where Sol operates, we commit to working with you to develop strong social partnerships.”

This new business in Jamaica expands Sol's presence in the Caribbean, and is the latest chapter in an expansion process dating back to 2005 when Sol first acquired Shell’s business in the Eastern Caribbean, Guyana, Suriname and Belize.
