With the first easing of lockdown restrictions in effect from last week Friday 1st May, Motul remains cautiously optimistic that more businesses will soon be able to start trading again and contribute to the health of the economy.
In keeping with the official relaxing of restrictions from total lockdown, Motul has obtained the necessary authorisations to supply customers who have their own essential services certifications.
At the same time, Motul has been working behind the scenes to onboard two new distributors in the effort to help all their customers prepare to hit the workshop floor running once the government gives the green light.
“We’re always excited to welcome new distributors to the Motul family,” commented Mercia Jansen, Motul Area Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa. “The speed with which these two distributors have adapted to the Motul way of doing business promises great things for the future, including outstanding service for workshops and retailers looking for Motul products,” she concluded.
Port Elizabeth and the Eastern Cape will benefit from Automotive Performance Solutions becoming an official distributor of Motul Automotive, Heavy Duty, and Agricultural lubricants. While they are not yet able to supply products until the restrictions permit, owner Domiziano Azzalin is confident that his team will be ready to commence deliveries as soon as this is allowed.
“We’re using the lockdown period to fine-tune our knowledge of Motul products and to finalise arrangements for the logistics,” said Azzalin. “We’re also working on some special opening offers that reflect our pride at being associated with a premium global brand like Motul,” he added.
