As a leading organisation in the development, manufacturing, and sale of lubricants and fuel additives, Infineum is committed to providing trusted products with superior performance to our customers.

Recently, we discovered that certain companies have been misusing the Infineum name and information posted on the official Infineum website and WeChat account in order to falsely claim an affiliation with Infineum. These companies have also made unauthorised usage of the “Infineum” trademark to conduct their marketing activities.

This has caused serious damage to our business interests, created market confusion, and may potentially result in significant harm to many of our customers.

Infineum places great value on our intellectual property rights, and will not hesitate to take legal action against parties who infringe our intellectual property rights in order to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Infineum and our customers.

We reserve all our legal rights in this regard and will investigate to determine who the responsible parties are. Additionally, we wish to officially state the following:
