Total will supply the Tayal mega textile plant in Relizane in special lubricants for weaving machines.
The Algerian engine oil market, which is between 140,000 tons and 160,000 tons / year, is the fourth in Africa. This strong potential is of utmost interest to Total Algeria, the second player in this field after Sonatrach’s subsidiary, Naftal, which, thanks to the announced opening of its plant, is taking advantage of this enormous potential.
“The Group has the ambition to develop in the country and will support its economic and industrial development,” said Total Lubricants General Manager, Mr. Stéphane Talleneau, at the inauguration of the first dedicated maintenance center. trucks and commercial vehicles of all brands (Total Rubia Truck Center TRTC) in Blida.
This TRTC is launched in partnership with ACS (Aissaoui Center Services), which specializes in the maintenance and service of heavy vehicles.
Mr. Talleneau who announced the opening of the Total plant for the end of the first half of 2019 explained that the brand will meet all the needs expressed by the market and in particular by the domestic industry, since Total will then supply the Tayal mega textile plant in Relizane in special lubricants for weaving machines.
Motor oils are much more consumed by land transport (75%) than by industry (23%), hence the importance that Total Algeria attaches to the development of its network, dedicated to trucks, on a scale of the national territory, with the next opening of two other centers similar to that of Blida, Oran and Oum El Bouaghi. All require a significant investment.
