Total Lubrifiants, a leading player in the global lubricants market, and NEXUS Automotive International (N!), a leading international group of automotive and heavy-duty parts distributors, have announced a three-year strategic global partnership that will be highly beneficial to customers across the globe.

Total Lubrifiants, a seasoned oil manufacturer of 45 years, will join N! to strengthen its portfolio with high quality premium oils, while Total products will get more exposure through N! distributors. The growing N! Community has seen much success and a rapid increase in consolidated turnover, rising from €7.2 billion at the end of 2015 to €12.8 billion one year later. N! has a growing presence in expanding markets such as Africa, the Middle East, the United States, Latin America and Asia-Pacific.

Oils specially tailored by Total Lubrifiants are known to enhance performance and protect engines from all industries. The Total product range matches, and surpasses, the needs of N! and its customers and will be its first choice for high quality premium oils.

Gael Escribe, CEO of Nexus Automotive International, and Thierry Gourault, Vice President Total Lubrifiants, are claiming: “This is an exciting collaboration as both Total and N! share the same philosophy of bringing innovation and value to customers around the world.”
