Chevron Brands International, Tristar (AFAL) Sign Lubricants License and Manufacturing Agreement in East Africa

Chevron Brands International LLC (Chevron) and AFAL Manufacturing Limited (AML) of the Tristar Group have signed a long-term licenseagreement encompassing production, distribution, and marketing of CaltexTM lubricants

Chevron Brands International LLC (Chevron) and AFAL Manufacturing Limited (AML) of the Tristar Group have signed a long-term license agreement encompassing the production, distribution, and marketing of CaltexTM lubricants in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). With the signing of this agreement, Chevron has strengthened its already growing presence in East Africa and entrusted its operations to AML as a licensee.

Caltex branded lubricants have been available in East African countries since 2013 through a distributor agreement with Africa Fuels & Lubricants Ltd (AFL), also of the Tristar Group. The mutual trust and satisfaction from this successful collaboration was a major factor in the realization of the long-term license agreement. Under the new scope, Chevron will provide its world-leading technology, and AML will blend, market, and distribute Caltex branded lubricants through its extensive network. The relationship seeks to leverage the synergy of Caltex’s strong brand strength and AML’s extensive market reach to successfully carve out a share in the competitive East Africa lubricants market.

“Chevron Brands have a history in East Africa spanning seven decades and we have collaborated with AFAL since 2013. Over the last eight years, our relationship with AFAL has grown from strength to strength and we are excited to begin a new chapter with AML, which will take the Caltex brand across Eastern Africa. This new agreement also includes lubricants blending options for future expansion,” said Douglas Rankine, GM Middle East & Africa – Fuels & Lubricants. “Both parties worked through the pandemic to deliver the agreement, reflecting an enhanced relationship based on trust, integrity and performance.”
