Total Lubrifiants has announced a new partnership agreement with Temot International that will enable customers around the world to benefit from TOTAL’s broad range of lubricants available today.
Temot is a strategic value-added network operating in the Automotive Accessories industry, employing more than 35,000 people and collaborating with 20,000 garages under different banners. The group generates revenue sales of more than 10 billion euros. Temot International was founded in 1994 and has since expanded into 63 countries on four continents.
Working with TOTAL, Temot benefits from 45 years of experience and will strengthen its product offerings with superior quality oils such as TOTAL QUARTZ, and TOTAL RUBIA. The 20,000 garages in Temot’s network will now have access to oils developed by Total Lubricant.
“We are delighted with this partnership with Temot. By becoming a fully referenced supplier, TOTAL is covering an even wider area, moving closer to distributors and becoming a local partner,” said Thierry Gourault, Managing Director for Automotive Total Lubricants. “The logistics implemented by Temot enables the automotive accessories industry to display growth that will benefit Total by targeting distributors.”
In addition to gaining access to independent garages and covering new geographical areas, this partnership enables TOTAL to offer its product ranges to not only the automotive market but also to the heavy-duty vehicle market.
“By partnering with major distributors, TOTAL is cementing its position as a premium supplier of engine lubricants by providing our entire product range,” adds Gourault.
“We are delighted by the partnership with TOTAL, one of the largest players in the lubricants market. Our shareholders, both light, and heavy-duty vehicles, present on all continents, will thus benefit from its strong global presence,” said Fotios Katsardis, President & CEO of TEMOT International.
The partnership between TOTAL and Temot rounds out the company’s efforts with automakers to broaden its growth prospects around the world.
