Syed Shakilur Rahman, CEO, Lubricants for South Asia,TEMIPL said, “We are pleased to announce this collaboration as another step towards expanding our footprint to meet the growing demand for quality products. With the car repair and full stack auto service models becoming a trend, a huge unorganised market is getting reshaped. The partnership adds to our continuous efforts to provide consumers with technologically advanced and superior lubricants for their vehicles to keep them performing at their best.”
Ramana Sambu, Co-Founder CBO, Automovill. Said, “The new age auto service start-ups are expected to propel the Indian repair market to $25 billion (Rs 2500 crore). As the market of auto repair is growing and getting re-engineered, we are trying to set standardisation in the process. For the longest time, the market has remained unorganised, resulting in users facing trust issues and affordability challenges. While we move forward to offer quality service with genuine parts and components, association with a global brand like TotalEnergies will be significant to the journey.”
