In 1998, Chevron and Total created a joint venture company - Arteco - to combine their strengths in the European coolants market. Arteco has enjoyed continuous growth and is now a leader in the European automotive coolant industry. In 2009, Arteco’s geographical scope grew beyond Europe to include Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, with offices in China, Japan and India.
Arteco is renowned for working in close partnership with most Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to develop coolants meeting their stringent requirements for first fill and service applications. Consequently, we focus on providing state-of-the-art quality products and services, which add value to and complement the needs of our customers.
Arteco expanded its product range in 2002 and now also produces a wide range of heat transfer fluids for various industrial (non-automotive) applications. Arteco has also become a key player in this market sector.
At Arteco, we are committed to meeting our customers' needs and constantly strive to improve all aspects of our business. From this perspective, corporate social responsibility is a permanent challenge when operating in the chemical industry and a strong driver for Arteco.
Our base line "Engenious coolants" stands for ENGine and inGENIOUS, both keywords in our industry.
