Kuala Lumpur, 19 September 2016 – In conjunction with its 125th anniversary in Malaysia, Shell has launched a collection of limited edition Shell Heritage Canisters. Available nationwide from 18 September to 31 October 2016, this special collection illustrates the various designs of Shell stations and pumps – from the 1920s until the 1980s.

“Shell has fuelled Malaysia’s progress, as well as the journeys of countless Malaysians on the road. We have come a long way and the designs of our stations and pumps have followed to suit changing times. We wanted to provide our customers a chance to bring home a small piece of our history through these limited edition collectibles. We hope the designs evoke a sense of nostalgia, and inspire Malaysians to continuously improve for the future,” said Ben Mahmud, Head of Retail Marketing, Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd.

The canisters are available in two sizes – mini and big. Customers who spend a minimum of RM40 on any Shell fuel are entitled to purchase the big canisters at RM 12.90 each, which come with complimentary fridge magnets, while those who purchase Shell Select items worth at least RM6 or any Shell Select promotion, are entitled to purchase the mini canisters at RM 7.90 each. A new design is released each week, and will be available at Shell stations nationwide while stocks last.
