KDL was initially established in 1993 by Mr. Salem Al Marzouk and had operated a factory in Ahmadi with an annual capacity of 15,000 metric tonnes. In 1998, KDL adopted ISO-9000 quality management systems and became the first Kuwaiti manufacturer to obtain this ISO certificate. On January of 2005, KDL expanded into a newer, bigger state of the art facility in Mina Abdulla that has an annual capacity of 55,000 metric tonnes – making it one of the largest lubricant blending plants in the GCC. Development Enterprises House, a subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House Bank, acquired KDL in it’s entirety from Mr. Salem Al Marzouk on the 10th of June, 2008 and has operated it until September of 2017. On September 4, 2017 KDL has been officially acquired by a new group with two shareholders – IDS and WJ Towell. Their goal is to bring in the right expertise and restructure the company in order to take the company to new heights on a global standard.
