“Within the next quarter we will start joint operations in Britain and are close to finalizing the plans,” Craig Moughler, managing director of Valvoline International Inc, a Fortune 500 firm, told reporters in the southern high-tech city of Bangalore.

Valvoline Cummins and Cummins Diesel formed their 50-50 joint venture in 1998 to make lubricants and chemicals for India’s fast-growing automobile industry.

The Indian firm, which expects revenues to grow 19 percent to 2.5 billion rupees ($54.3 million) in the financial year ending March 2005, did not disclose where it would set up operations in Britain or how many people it planned to employ.
