27 May 2020, Mumbai: Castrol India Limited salutes essential service workers at the forefront of the battle against Covid-19 as #IndiaFightsCorona. Castrol, through its network of independent workshops, is providing complimentary lubricants aimed at servicing and maintaining vehicles of essential service workers including doctors, nurses, paramedics, police, healthcare workers, municipal workers and garbage collectors who are bravely helping keep India safe.
In addition, Castrol India has also undertaken a complimentary sanitization drive for its independent workshops network across ten cities. This sanitization drive promotes a safe environment for the workshop mechanics and consumers as they make their way into everyday life with lockdowns being lifted in some parts of the country. The drive is accompanied by safety briefings and hygiene awareness at all these workshops.
Commenting on these initiatives, Sandeep Sangwan - Managing Director, Castrol India Limited said, “At Castrol, we pay tribute to essential service workers, our silent heroes, for their unwavering spirit and determination to protect the health and wellbeing of the people of India. As a responsible brand, we consider it our duty to support their extraordinary efforts and to keep them moving. Castrol India stands united with the country as #IndiaFightsCorona as we look to navigate through this human crisis together.”
Castrol has stepped up and made contributions to impacted communities in several ways during the last two months. The company has donated critical medical equipment like ventilators, ICU beds, sanitizers and PPE to hospitals across India. Castrol has touched the lives of over 62,000 mechanics and their families through monetary contributions amidst the national lockdown, besides extending support to stranded truckers through food packets at transportation hubs, along with groceries and dry rations to migrant workers and labourers across several states. Protective gear to policemen and garbage collectors in key metros have also been provided.
