About Lubrication Specialists

Lubrication Specialists (PTY) Ltd was established in 1998 as a joint venture company between ExxonMobil Corporation and Manica Group Namibia in order to compliment the re- introduction of the Mobil Brand into Southern Africa. In January 2005, the ExxonMobil shareholding was transferred to Engen Petroleum Limited, in line with the previous co-operation agreement between ExxonMobil Corporation and Engen within Southern Africa.

In August 2009, Manica Group Namibia acquired 100% shares in Lubrication Specialists, which made it a wholly owned company of Manica. In 2014 Lubrication Specialists signed an Authorised Distributorship deal with Exxon Mobil to distribute Mobil products to the marine, industrial and commercial sectors.

Today Lubrication Specialists directly employs 30 permanent, skilled and semi-skilled employees and has lubricant distribution centres across Namibia. The company adheres to national employment equity requirements in its recruitment, and ensures that all staff members undergo regular safety, product knowledge, and ethics training as required by Exxon Mobil.
