The company engage in the manufacturing and blending of all types of lubricants, chemicals and petroleum related products.

Our Group recognizes its rights to the net assets of AP Saigon as investment and accounts for it using the equity method.
Through the last 15 years, APSP built up a good presence and name in Vietnam and Cambodia, supplying high quality lubricants and services to customers. To celebrate this momentous milestone, in October 2023, APSP held a celebration event with dinner and dance in Ho Chi Minh City, to thank the staff, distributors and customers for their commitment and support, culminating in a night of fun and dance (see photos). The management also took the opportunity to set targets for the next phase of growth.
