As a progressive energy and solutions partner that is firmly committed to enriching lives for a sustainable future, Engen will once again partner with Grain SA as a proud sponsor at Nampo Harvest Day 2023. 

Cementing a relationship with Grain SA that spans over 40 years, Engen’s Commercial business head, Drikus Kotze says the company is proud of its longstanding partnership with Nampo and commitment to South Africa’s farmers.

“Nampo is an ideal platform for us to demonstrate our commitment to growing and sustaining the agricultural sector through our innovative product solutions,” comments Kotze.

With over a century of experience fueling and lubricating agricultural equipment, Engen offers a wide range of petroleum products, supported by the largest national distribution network, as well as high-performing lubricants and fluids that are endorsed by most manufacturers of modern agricultural equipment and tailored to operate under severe African weather conditions. 

Says Engen’s head of Lubricants, Sharveen Maharaj: “Our hard-working products have been developed to provide the best protection for farming equipment to increase productivity and reduce costs.

“Our lubricants are specially formulated to withstand the harshest African weather conditions, with our recently launched Engen Dieselube 700 Super, advanced from CI-4 Plus to CK-4 API technology, promising to continue its legacy as the best formulation engineered for African conditions.” 

In South Africa, it is estimated that one in every two farmers relies on Engen’s expertise and technical excellence. 

“We understand that farmers face tough challenges every single day, including harsh weather, price fluctuation, and tough competition, which is why we are committed to making life easier for our customers,” says Kotze.

Engen looks forward to welcoming visitors of all ages to its interactive stand and the ever-popular Tractor Museum, which houses a collection of vintage tractors that were once out on the fields. 

“It’s amazing to see how farming equipment has evolved over the years,” says Kotze. 

“Visitors to the museum will find the experience nostalgic, while we will also have live tractor engine demonstrations and interactive experiences with lots of prizes to be won.”

As part of its commitment to inspiring and empowering budding farmers, Engen is proud to also once again host Fred McCarthy (Jnr), an aspiring 12-year-old farmer from the North-West province, as well as 10 other future farmers at this year’s event. 

Concludes Kotze: “Engen is excited to continue its partnership with Nampo Harvest Day as we remain committed to being solutions partner to farmers, focusing on the supply of superior quality products and tailor-made solutions to meet our customer’s needs.
