EUNISELL Limited has urged motorists and other users to use high quality lubricants to prolong the lifespan of their equipment.
The company made the call at its programme with the theme: “Advances and Trends in Automotive, Transmission, and Industrial Fluids”, targeted at enlightening lubricant dealers on technical issues in the market.
Chief Executive Officer, Eunisell International, Iain Fraser, said that it’s the company’s determination to see Nigeria benefit from the development of the downstream sector while the participants are also empowered with quality knowledge.
He said,“Nigeria must not be left out of the developments in the downstream sector; this is why we carry out such training for various organisations at no cost. We do this every year for the past 15 years, empowering participants with the requisite knowledge to guarantee the production of top quality lubricants for automobiles and industries in Nigeria”
Also, the Chief Executive Officer, Eunisell Limited, Ramesh Hullur, said the training has been designed to help participants gain cutting-edge knowledge on trends and developments in the automotive, transmission and industrial fluids market.
“This training is essential and is meant to bring together professionals who are into blending of lubricants and other petroleum and allied products in Nigeria, with a view to bringing them up to speed with industry developments and technological breakthroughs that have led to the advancement of additives and lubricants in other parts of the world,” he said, adding that the seminar creates a veritable platform to access the latest information on specialty fluids, thereby enhancing application expertise.
The Group Managing Director, Eunisell Limited, Mr Chika Ikenga, noted that, the size of lubricant production in the country is between 250, 000 and 300, 000 metric tonnes annually.
He stated that one of the current challenges affecting the market is the unavailability of protrochemical plants in the country.
“Unfortunately, the products are imported, the petrochemical plants in Nigeria are not working; if they are working, we would have had components to make these products and to offer them at cheaper prices. The product is 100 per cent imported, so the price changes as the exchange rate changes,’’ he said.
