ENGEN, a leading producer and marketer of a wide range of fuels, lubricants and oil-based products, has appointed D.M. Distributors as official distributor of lubricants in Mozambique’s Nacala region.
Rogerio Fernandes, Engen Commercial Sales Manager: Mozambique North Region, says the company is pleased to have announced the appointment.
“D.M is an established distributor in the region with a reputation for integrity and competitiveness,” says Fernandes.
Owned by Danilo Morgado, D.M. Distributors will work within a rolling annual contract and will help spearhead Engen’s drive for growth in the commercial and retail space.
It will distribute the full range of Engen’s automotive and industrial lubricants and greases, as well as selected PETRONAS Syntium engine oils and PETRONAS marine lubricants from Engen’s Nacala Depot.
General Manager of Engen’s International Business Division, Drikus Kotze, says in addition to D.M. Distributors’ distribution strength, the partnership has strategic importance as it will increase Engen’s lubricants footprint in Mozambique.
“The port of Nacala in the north of Mozambique unlocks the economic potential of Northern Mozambique and offers an economic supply corridor to neighbouring landlocked countries,” says Kotze.
Engen Petroleum is a subsidiary of PETRONAS, the National Oil Company of Malaysia and one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies.
