The Awards ceremony was officiated by Total Uganda Limited’s Head Of Specialties, Allan Omuron and the Lubricants Sales Manager Olivia Nahwera.
Allan Omuron congratulated the overall winners of the Distributor Challenge emphasizing the purpose for which this competition was designed; “To reward our best performers in the lubricant distribution channel for our products. Total Rubia intended for Diesel engines, Total Quartz intended for Petro engines, and Total HiPerf intended for Motorbikes. Due to the highly acclaimed reputation garnered by our lubricants on the market, it has prompted wrong characters to attempt at counterfeiting the products,” Allan Omuron stressed. He also called upon Total customers to always remain vigilant against the counterfeits and make sure that they purchase Total’s genuine products with tamper-proof seals to avoid irreversible damage to the customers’ automobile engines.
The Lubricants Sales Manager Olivia Nahwera encouraged Taxi and Boda-Boda drivers to use TOTAL’s quality lubricants which would reduce the operational downtime due to extended servicing garage visits, because, “TOTAL Lubricants guarantee high performance and durability of all automotive engines.”
She added that, in 2019, the Lubricants Distributors Challenge was launched in a bid to support and reward over 20 distributors across the country. And this has had over 20% growth in lubricants volume sales since the launch of the challenge in 2019 compared to 2018 plus over 32% growth in Point-of-Sales across the network
The excited Winners pledged to use their prizes to boost their business network and use their vehicles to effectively supply TOTAL lubricants to other regional resellers and Points of Sale.
The competition winner Tamuzadde Enterprises Ltd who was represented by Hajjat Amina Tamuzadde, gave special thanks to TOTAL Uganda Limited for all the support extended to her business and for this Distributor Challenge initiative which rewards the distributors’ and resellers’ efforts in the field. She said the prize will only encourage her to further expand her distribution network and supply even greater volumes in the market.
The Distributor Challenge campaign pioneered in 2019 was designed to strengthen and expand Total lubricants Points-Of-Sale network countrywide and ensure product availability across the route to market. Considering the success yielded by this inaugural campaign, plans, and considerations to make it an annual event are underway. Total designed this campaign to reward Total distributors/resellers and appreciate their contribution towards ensuring that the best lubricant is conveniently available to all our customers.
This Distributor Challenge initiative rewards TOTAL lubricants distributors who achieve and surpass their Volume Targets and grow their number of active Points-of-Sale.
