We have a diverse small engine portfolio consisting of 2-stroke (2T) and 4-stroke (4T) engine oil additives. In the 2T segment, we boast a strong history in outboard engine oils and in 2T, air-cooled engines for motorcycles and non-road equipment.
Environmental regulations have shifted the market focus from 2T to 4T engines in most small engine segments. In the late 1990s, we focused on 4T motorcycle oil market in the Asia Pacific region with strong original equipment manufacturer (OEM) alignment and collaboration. Today, we are focusing on the main tier market segment in anticipation of further market shifts from traditional passenger car oils to differentiated 4T motorcycle oils.
We believe there will be significant growth in the 4T market in Asia Pacific and Latin America.
We maintain strong relationships with Japanese and non-Japanese OEMs through continued and advanced technical support. We are members of the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) committee and participate in Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) activities. Our highly experienced development team is supported by state-of-the-art testing capabilities for performance demonstration and differentiation. This advantage in innovative technology is how Oronite adds up for you.
