This multi-purpose lube blending plant will be the first of its kind among the indigenous lubricant blending plants in Nigeria.”
The managing Director said, Trustlub Fluid Resources Limited has been competing fairly with its competitors in the lubricant market. He said, “our product brand is one of the leading brands in our present area coverage consisting the entire Southwest and Kwara State.”

He said regardless of several external factors influencing “our business operations, we remain resilient and dogged in the achievement of our corporate vison of becoming Nigeria’s reference in petroleum marketing company that will become a leader in the oil and gas sector of the country’s economy, and also recognised as one of the best in the full-stream petroleum industry.
“Consequently, we have over time, ensured these aspirations becomes our driving force, while equally reflecting the same in our decision-making processes, business operations as well as our relationship with our customers and other stakeholders. This same aspiration birthed the new blending plant we are commissioning today, as we believe it will go a long way in meeting our customers’ expectation of having high-quality products delivered timely at their doorsteps”
On the marketing aspect of the lubricant products, the Regional Marketing Manager, Linus Adamu said, their products have moved ahead of them to other regions of the country with numerous requests they have been receiving from distributors across the country. Adamu said that all their products have been certified by the regulators and described the lubricant products as sure-bet for their customers.
“We have designed our strategies for the distribution and sales of our products. Like in the six states of the Southwest including Kwara State that we are covering at present, we have strategic distributors in key areas and these distributors are also dealers in major brands. I can tell you conveniently now that Trustlub brands are competing fairly with most of the major brand in these territories which we have actively covered. We moved to our new blending plant to enable us to expand our capacity to satisfy our consumers more. The same strategies that have worked for us in the Southwest currently is the same strategies we will employ for other regions across the country.
