Original Equipment Manufacturing
Total: lubricants for first fill
With the rapid changes that are taking place in the design and manufacture of original engines, Total South Africa has to ensure that it stays abreast of the demands for high quality products by the manufacturers of new original engines.
In South Africa Total has a very close relationship with, among others, Toyota Motors, Daimler/Chrysler, Renault, Tata, Kia, VW, Nissan, Citroen and Peugeot.
The company must ensure that the lubricant products that are part of its extensive lubricant range meets the demands of the original engine manufacturers internationally and that the product specifications are approved for use in their vehicles.
OEMs are visited on a regular basis to inform them of the latest lubricants that are available for first fill and the after-market, and to determine from these manufacturers what new needs they have.
