Given FT Farfan’s experience in the supply and marketing of lubricants in the consumer and fleet sectors, we believe that this partnership will usher in an exciting era for the Castrol brand in Trinidad and Tobago.

Castrol is one of the world’s largest lubricant brands. It is over 120 years old and has been part of the bp family since 2000.
