Engen in Africa
Engen traces its African history as far back as 1881, when it began trading under the brand of Vacuum Oil in Cape Town. In 1996, the year that marked its birth as a truly African brand, we began a concerted African expansion programme, over the next four years creating affiliates in Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Burundi, Uganda and Mozambique. Under EPIC 2016, Engen’s 10-year growth plan, we reaffirmed our international (African) drive in 2006. In 2007, Engen bought an operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and the next year in Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Rwanda and Burundi. The EPIC 2016 journey continues as Engen investigates various business opportunities on the continent, seeking to establish the firm as ‘A Champion in Africa’ by 2016.
