According to Enterprise Centre of BP-Azerbaijan Petrochem Group’s management made a decision to prepare the company for ISO 9001-2000 certification to enhance the management and quality controls within the company and to increase the company’s competitiveness in the market. Proposals were submitted by five ISO consulting companies. In December 2003 Petrochem Group identified local consulting company “ASPI Consulting Engineers” to implement the project. 50% of the consultancy costs will be covered by EBRD BAS (Business Advisory Services Program) funded by the European Union. Petrochem group has been a successful Azerbaijani distributor of BP lubricants for 10 years and distributor of Castrol oils. The major lines of business are automobile and industrial business (non-oil sector clients, such as Baku Steel Company, Karadakh Cement, Azersun Holding, etc.) and marine and offshore business. Additionally, the company has started a limited production of industrial cleaners and greases. The company is considered as one of the best distributors for BP due to a successful model of combining industrial and offshore lines.
