LSB was established in 1998 and has grown over the last eighteen years to become the leading lubricants distributer in Botswana, commanding a market share of approximately 65%. The distributorship dates back to 1992 and was initially a Castrol distributorship operating as a division of a separate entity until the incorporation of LSB in 1998

At the inception of LSB in 1998 Castrol was an unknown brand in Botswana with a very small (below 5%) market share. The establishment of the Castrol brand to its present strength and the capturing of the market share are the outcomes of a process initiated by the present Chairman Aryl Ralebala when he joined LSB at its inception in 1998, supported by a team of committed staff.

Castrol is the manufacturers’ recommended lubricant for most leading brands of motor vehicles, heavy equipment, mining equipment etc. This provides a captive market for LSB with most vehicle and equipment dealerships using Castrol almost exclusively at their service workshops.

The Botswana mining industry dominates the country’s economy and as a result, has significant influence over other sectors in the country. The major mining companies that form part of BP’s global relationships are regarded as Key Account Customers.
This is the largest division within LSB, making up 50% of the business. LSB has contracts with privately owned companies to provide lubricants for vehicles, equipment and machinery. We supply spare parts dealers, motor vehicle franchised dealers and construction companies, including the franchised dealers of Mercedes, Scania, Toyota, Nissan, Isuzu etc.
The government sector includes major institutions including the Botswana Defence Force, the Aviation Authority, Central Transport Organisation, District Councils, Wildlife Department and the Botswana Government.

A Record of Innovation and Industry Firsts

We are a recognized pioneer in nanofiber technology. For over two decades, we have manufactured and tested filter elements using fibers less than a micron in width. In the transportation market, with tightening environmental regulations and improved aerodynamics necessitating decreasing sizes and weights, our R&D efforts have produced smaller, lighter and more efficient filters and filtration systems.
