International Lubricant Distributors (ILD)
International Lubricant Distributors, or ILD, is an Australian based lubricant marketing company focused on distributing premium lubricants to Australian and international markets.
ILD is the exclusive distributor of Sinopec lubricants in Australia. The partnership between ILD and Sinopec aims to bring a fresh new product range and an innovative service offering to the Australian market - an offering grounded on delivering value, performance and superior levels of customer service.
Our team is key to differentiating ILD from the other lubricant marketers, each team member being thoroughly experienced in the lubricant market, having previously worked for the world's most predominant oil companies and equipment OEMs. Every member is passionate about oils, everyone is dedicated to exceeding customer needs and all are committed to the core company value of a solutions driven mindset.
Over the past 12 years, ILD has built the Sinopec brand to become one of the strongest in the market, particularly in the mining, earthmoving and transport industries. This growth is predicated foremost on the quality of the oil but backed up by the best-in-industry technical and customer service offering.
ILD offers its customers purpose-built lubricant supply solutions that save the customer money and extends asset life. We take a close personal approach with our customers and generate loyalty through service.
ILD Sinopec is the only genuine lubricant company to have successfully entered the Australian market as a tier one supplier in recent times. ILD has changed the status quo in the industry having won a series of significant major national contracts, particularly in the mining sector.
ILD's success requires:
INNOVATIVE SUPPLY SOLUTIONS
COMPLETE SUPPLY ASSURANCE
BEST VALUE PROPOSITION IN THE MARKET
Further to ILD's growing success is its commitment to excellence and the community. ILD is the only major distributor in Australia that is fully certified as carbon neutral across all its operations. ILD is committed to the concept of making a net positive impact on the planet.
ILD is also the only major distributor in Australia that is fully ISO 9001 certified across all its operations. Many major oil companies have their manufacturing operations certified - as does Sinopec - but none go further downstream in their operations to have the full production and sales cycles certified.

Telstra Business Awards Finalist 2019
International Lubricant Distributors (ILD) was announced as a Finalist in the prestigious 2019 Telstra Business Awards in the Medium and Making Waves category in Western Australia.
The ILD / Sinopec Premium Industrial Lubricants offer is well-known in the Australian industrial market. The ILD team was very excited to receive recognition for ten years of hard work by being named as finalists in the Telstra Business Awards.
The Australian market for industrial lubricants is highly competitive with more than 700 lubricant-related businesses in Australia (IBIS World May 2019). The market is dominated by four global major suppliers with an estimated 90% of combined market share. However, the ILD Sinopec offer has managed to successfully compete and grow in the market by behaving differently, diversifying and leading the market in its service offering.
ILD’s Chief Operation Officer, Robert Boylan commented that “ILD has been doing things differently from the traditional lubricants businesses since we commenced. We have led the market by becoming fully ISO 9001 Quality Management System accredited across all our operations, developing a cloud-based real-time operating system and being the only lubricants company to achieve Carbon Neutral status for the whole business. Innovation has led our business offer and we intend to remain in front of the market to give our customers the best and most trusted offer in the market.
ILD is committed to changing the landscape of Australian lubricants industry, and we will continue to innovate and differentiate our offer for the benefit of our customers and allies. Being named as a Finalist in 2019’s Telstra Business Awards is a welcome recognition that our approach is working.”
