Motul is a France headquartered company that manufactures, develops and distributes lubricants for engines and industrial applications. Larive Group assisted Motul in assessing the risk of entering Indonesia through three different corporate structures given recent discussions with PT Wiraswasta Gemilang (WGI):
- Establishing a 100% subsidiary in Indonesia (PT), import its own product and appoint WGI as a distributor.
- Form a “partnership” with WGI through JV / toll manufacturing / licensing.
- Set up 100% subsidiary in Indonesia (PT) and form a partnership with WGI – PT overseeing the execution of the operation.
Larive supported Motul with establishing a local wholly-owned subsidiary for the import and distribution of lubricants in Indonesia.
