Spectra Oil Corporation
Spectra Oil has partnered with FQM in Lubrication and its attendant services since 2001 at FQM’s first operation in Zambia at Bwana Mkubwa mine. Over the years, one of the crucial aspects of this partnership has been Spectra’s ability to understand FQM’s needs and provide generic and tailor-made solutions to support and service specialist machinery bespoke to FQM and its operations.
Spectra Oil has built a robust supply chain with overseas companies to meet FQM’s specialist needs. With Spectra Oil working with FQM at its mines in Zambia at Kansanshi & Sentinel, this partnership has continued to grow.
