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. 

Azzalin also encouraged anyone needing Motul products in the Eastern Cape to visit www.raceaps.co.za or to contact him directly at sales@raceaps.co.za  

KZN’s Indy Go Tyres is gearing up to offer Motul’s range of Automotive products and lubricants as soon as the current restrictions are eased. 

Indy Go Tyres owner Charl Momsen is working on promotional introductory offers for retailers across KZN. “Our current customers can order from us as soon as they are permitted to trade again, and we are keen to build relationships with new clients,” said Momsen. “We are working with Motul to optimise product availability during this challenging time,” he added. 

Momsen also described how becoming a Motul distributor is both a source of great pride to his team, and an opportunity to raise their standards still higher. Indy Go Tyres can be contacted via their website www.indygotyres.co.za or by email at motul@indygotyres.co.za 

“With our ongoing Motul distribution arrangement with Bikewise and our Motorcycle products going from strength to strength, the addition of two distributors in different SA provinces is further evidence of our commitment to making Motul products even more readily available. Motul believes that it is through this kind of teamwork that we can offer the best possible service. To this end, we are always open to discussing potential new partnerships,” confirmed Mercia Jansen.
