Lubrication Engineers partners with Umuzi Engineers

First Quarter 2020 News & events

Lubrication Engineers (LE) has partnered with Umuzi Engineers to tap the potential in new markets. Colin Ford, managing director at LE South Africa, says that Umuzi Engineers will operate as an independent contractor to LE South Africa, supplying its quality lubricants to clients in eSwatini and South Africa. “We realised synergies existed and started to explore the potential of a relationship,” he adds. “The lubrication industry was unfamiliar to me, but I realised the potential it offers and the value of the products and services Lubrication Engineers provides. I saw an opportunity to build a partnership.”

Menzi Ntshingila, director at Umuzi Engineers, explains that the company is a solutions-based company that aims to help businesses reduce operating costs over the long term. Better lubrication solutions is one way of doing this, and so that’s where we’re focusing first, and then Umuzi Engineers will look to expand into robotics and natural gas at a later stage,” he says. Umuzi Engineers is based in eSwatini, but also services clients in South Africa. The two companies believe that the relationship will help them to enter new markets and geographies, providing LE’s premium, best-in-class lubricants and lubrication systems.

“LE South Africa has been pivotal in introducing Umuzi Engineers to a new opportunity in the lubrication space, and in providing insights into the workings of the industry and support on their products and solutions,” says Ntshingila. “I believe 2020 will start to yield the results of our efforts.”
