Downstream activities generally refer to the marketing and distribution of petroleum products. We are actively involved in sourcing and selling as well as the distribution of petroleum products.
Our downstream strategy is to establish and secure strategically located fuels and lubricants distribution networks, as well as sales infrastructure to boost the company’s brand and provide world-class services to you, our valued customers and business partners.
We are duly committed to not only penetrate, but also grow the Commercial (B2B) and Retail fuels and Lubricants markets, in all profitable sectors, as well as to explore the export markets in the SADC region.
What started off as a pipe dream for NAMCOR has resulted in a visibly aggressive strategic business inroad, into the retail market space. The desire to grow our fuels business and improve market share as per our five year strategic plan has seen the company roll out state of the art service stations in well selected locations countrywide. So far, the NAMCOR brand is represented in two prominent locations from a retail market space perspective, namely Hosea Kutako International Airport and Hanover in Ongwediva.
Our Hosea Kutako International Airport site was commissioned on 22 August 2019, enjoys the prominence of being at the gateway into Namibia. It has the honour the privilege of serving both local and international customers.
Our Hanover service station was commissioned on 1st November 2019. This site occupies a prominent space in Ongwediva and offers generous parking, with very good access points thus making traffic flow in and out of the site a pleasure for motorists. The Deli Express convenience shop provides our customers with generous shopping space and array of refreshments and other grocery products.
This is just the beginning of greater things to come as NAMCOR continues to deliver a steady pipeline of state of the art Retail projects countrywide.
With NAMCOR now competing in the downstream energy sector, we market and sell a variety of petroleum products. Another major factor in the downstream lubricants market is also price competitiveness in this sector.
Our Lubricants are produced and packed by Pro Oil under the NAMCOR brand. We focus on five major applications in the downstream market for our NAMCOR branded lubes namely; Engine Oils, Gearbox/Transmission Oils, Hydraulic Oils, Differential and Multipurpose Gear Oils as well as Compressor Oils.
We offer a world class lubricant for sale into the downstream market. One of our major achievements is the N$3 billion contract we won for the supply of lubricants and fuels to Swakop Uranium mine. To be awarded a contract of this magnitude, is testimony of the high quality of our lubricants with multiple specified applications associated with a world class mine like Swakop Uranium mine. With NAMCOR branded lubricants having most OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) approvals, we are positive that there are other mines and major commercial entities to come on board soon.
In conclusion, the OEM approvals coupled with our world class specified lubricants and fuels offering and our competitive pricing into the downstream market are valuable enablers for us to aggressively drive and grow the lubricants and fuels business in the downstream market on behalf of NAMCOR.
