TOTAL (Fiji) Limited has opened a new lubricants warehouse building worth approximately $2 million to boost its lubricant supply in the country.

This new warehouse in Raiwai, Suva, will be the storage facility from where the lubricants are shipped out to for distribution.

TOTAL Fiji managing director, Martin McCarthy, in the inauguration said: “This warehouse will serve as a one of their largest lubricant’s storage area in the region.

“Remember this is where the lubricants arrive and then get distributed to other storage so Taveuni will be fed from here, Vuda will be fed from here, Labasa will be fed from here.

“It just comes in here to start with and then gets shipped out to the other points of distribution around the country.”

Mr McCarthy said they have further solidified the foundation for their robust business growth in Fiji.

“The opening of the warehouse not only represents a milestone for TOTAL’S growth in Fiji’s lubricants market but also across the Pacific region,” he said.

He added with the increase of hybrid cars on Fijian roads has had a noticeable impact on gasoline sales in service stations.

“So we seeing a rise quite significantly, actually more than the normal market growth as a consequence,” he said.

“Those kinds of engines will of course will use a higher quality of lubricants so there is a slightly higher demand for our range of lubricants for those kinds of vehicle.”

Mc Carthy added Total’s fuel economy lubricants- a special line of products that aim to boost the fuel efficiency of vehicles , heavy machinery and off road equipment will also be stored at the warehouse.
