Introduction and History

History and going forward . . .

Global Lubricants (PTY) was an independent ISO 9001 certified blender of lubricants that has been manufacturing quality automotive and industrial lubricants in Francistown, Botswana since 2009. Responding to international trends, OEM requirements and the desire to be part of an international network Global Lubricants teamed up with Strub-SA and have together set up a manufacturing hub in the heart of the SADC region, Botswana. The STRUB brand was established in Switzerland in 1921 and was established in South Africa in 1983 as Strub-SA.
The alliance brings together exceptional businesses in a bid to create one resilient international brand that signifies eminence and unsurpassed quality. STRUB! The new name of Strub Botswana will soon be a household name in the lubricant industry adding immense value to the international STRUB Brand.
