ELF said in a statement yesterday that a significant lubricant player worldwide and known among the race tracks around the world, the ELF brand has been an innovative brand known for quality dating back to the 1930s.

“ELF is a legendary French brand that is known worldwide for technological expertise, passion and premium quality. Putting technological innovation, research and cutting-edge technology into high gear, ELF lubricants is one of the trusted lubricants used by leading international car manufacturers and quality conscious consumers.

“Elf Lubricants had been present in the Nigerian market since the 1960s and in 2001 after the merger of TOTAL and Elf in Nigeria to form the company TOTAL, Elf Lubricants brand was withdrawn from Nigeria officially. ELF Lubricants has now come back into the Nigerian market to satisfy consumer demand for quality lubricants for both petrol and diesel engines. With specific formulation, manufactured by TOTAL, ELF is a brand that caters to the varying consumer needs on and off the motorsports racing tracks,” it added.

Managing Director, Total Nigeria Plc, Jean-Philippe Torres, was very pleased with the partnership with Pinnacle Oil and Gas Limited as this partnership expands the distribution channel for Nigerians to have more access to world-class quality lubricants.
