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.
