About UsINNOVATION, TRUST and HERITAGE.
Atlas Oil is proud of the efficient and professional service we have rendered to our customers for 50 years. For over 3 generations we have been an important part of many businesses, ensuring that the wheels of industry keep turning. Atlas Oil accesses a wealth of technical knowledge and experience and our staff make daily recommendations to customers about the best lubricants to use in any application.
We realise that no business is the same as the next, and it’s for this reason that we treat every client’s business as if it’s our own. We offer specialised lubrication solutions. Through the interactive process, we cultivate long lasting sustainable business relationships and enjoy and appreciate the experiences and learnings that we take away with us.
Strategy and Vision
To grow successful business partnerships in Southern Africa where businesses benefit from an increase in capital equipment productivity, efficiency and longevity through the proper use of advanced technology in oil.
To look for business opportunities that allow us to share knowledge and methodologies with industry, about maintenance cost reductions through the proper use of lubricants, and then implement changes in organisations that realise quantifiable bottom-line savings.
Atlas Oil has always competed in a specialised market where many players exist, but where only a select few are respected for having sufficient experience, competence and ability to deliver.
