The new 'Made for Malaysia' labels are now applied to the five best-selling Shell Helix products that are now blended and packed at Shell’s Lubricant Oil Blending Plant in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan.
Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd recently introduced new ‘Made for Malaysia’ labels for ‘official genuine’ Shell Helix products meant for sale in Malaysia. This is applied to the five best-selling Shell Helix products that are now blended and packed at Shell’s Lubricant Oil Blending Plant in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan.
These include Shell Helix Ultra 5W 40 (4L), Helix HX7 10W 40 (4L), Helix HX7 5W 30 (4L), Helix HX5 10W 30 (3L) and Helix HX5 15W 40 (4L).
A quick check on the authenticity of the product could be done by peeling off the new front label to reveal a unique QR code, while the label at the back features information in English and Bahasa Malaysia.
The QR code also enables easy registration for the Shell Advantage Rewards (SHARE) programme that rewards customers with goodies that include a sign-up bonus, Shell Helix Engine Warranty (SHEW) and free Shell Helix products.
According to Shell Malaysia Managing Director Shairan Huzani Husain, the move is a strategic investment by the company to protect the interests of car owners and trade partners by enabling them to clearly identify official genuine products.
“The presence of counterfeit and unauthorised products in the market is affecting customer confidence and negatively impacting our trade partners’ businesses. The decision to commence local production of official genuine Shell Helix products meant exclusively for the Malaysian market and clearly identify them with the new ‘Made for Malaysia’ labels, is a key step to address this issue,” he said.
Shairan added that there were no changes to the formulation of the Made-for-Malaysia Shell Helix engine oils and customers would continue to enjoy ultimate engine performance, even in extreme driving conditions.
The introduction of Shell Helix products with ‘Made for Malaysia’ labels is ongoing and expected to be completed by January 2019. During this transition period, official genuine Shell Helix products with old labels would still be on sale and could be authenticated through the unique product code on the label.
Apart from the Shell Helix-branded workshops, selected workshops served by authorised Shell distributors and Shell retail stations, the official genuine Shell Helix engine oils are also available online at Lazada Malaysia, 11street and Shopee via Shell Malaysia’s official online stores.
The ‘Made for Malaysia’ Shell Helix range was officially launched by the Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, Dato' Saifuddin Nasution Ismail. Also present was Dato’ Basaruddin Sadali, Deputy Secretary-General (Domestic Trade), Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism.
