Engen Ghana appoints Samir Engineering as official distributor of lubricant products

Engen Ghana Ltd. (EGL) has appointed Samir Engineering and Trading Company Limited (SETL)/ Quantum Petroleum, as the official distributor of Engen’s full range of lubricant products in the country.

Henry Akwaboah, managing director of Engen Ghana, told the Ghana News Agency that Samir Engineering has an extensive market presence, as well as a dedicated marketing arm, which places it in a strong position to deliver excellent service.

The tie-up with Samir Engineering would boost the current footprint of Engen lubricants from 22 to 54 service stations, in addition to SETL’s/QUANTUM lubricants operation.

“We look forward to combining our strengths to bring mutual rewards in the Ghanaian lubricant market,” Akwaboah said.

EGL was established in 1998, with its first service stations opening in Tema and in Accra in 1999. Akwaboah said the number of its stations has increased to 21, with four more under construction.

Engen, based in South Africa, is focused on the downstream oil market and related businesses. It is a subsidiary of Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas, with presence in more than 30 countries, mostly in Africa and the Indian Ocean islands. Its core functions are the refining of crude oil, marketing of petroleum products and operating convenience stores, through an extensive retail network.
