TotalEnergies signs original equipment lubricants partnership

TotalEnergies announced last week that it had signed a partnership for the supply of original equipment lubricants to AMADA Europe’s plants, as well as a range of AMADA-branded lubricants on June 8, 2021. The partnership with AMADA Europe, a leading manufacturer of machine tools for the sheet metal industry, will last for five years and will cover 14 countries in Europe. AMADA operates in Europe with 10 branches in 13 countries and eight production sites, employing 1,500 people and serving approximately 30,000 customers.

Since 2016, TotalEnergies’ Lubricants Department in France has been supplying part of the original equipment oils to AMADA’s main plant in Europe in Château-du-Loir. With this partnership, TotalEnergies’ Lubricants Division is committed to providing its expertise and know-how to AMADA Europe’s customers.

Both players share a common vision of putting innovation and customer satisfaction at the heart of their commitment.

“We are extremely proud to have been chosen by AMADA Europe as their preferred partner for the supply of lubricants for their plants in Europe and the extension of the contract for the production of genuine oils. This demonstrates our commitment to provide high-quality products, which are always developed to meet our customers’ requirements,” said Olivier Bertomeu, general manager, Industrial Lubricants, TotalEnergies.

“This partnership is in line with the Group’s strategy and its ongoing commitment to provide all its customers with an ever higher level of service and product quality. TotalEnergies’ lubricants meet all the requirements of the Japanese quality standards on which the manufacture of AMADA machines is based,” said Jean François Vanier, managing director of AMADA Europe SA.
