70 years in the lubricants business

Over 70 Years in the Lubricants Business

Flexilube is built on past experience gained from founding Cera Oils in 1952, and building it into the largest independent lubricant's manufacturer and re-refinery in South Africa until it's sale in 1984. Flexilube was founded in November 1984, and officially began trading on the 10th April 1985, combining a wealth of knowledge with a spirit of innovation and flair for improvement. We are a third generation, family owned and operated business. Our business principles and ethics shine through in everything we do. We believe that the personal relationships that have been built with our customers, suppliers and employees over many years are the glue that holds our business together, and will ensure our continuity.

Dedication, sacrifice and a high level of exposure are the cornerstones of a company dedicated to the benefit of our customers, staff and suppliers. Our business prides itself on our focus on customer service. We ensure that from the time the customer places an order, right through to the delivery of the product by our driver and the follow up visit from our sales representative that all their needs are met.

Flexilube has an uncompromising attitude to high quality standards. Blending techniques conform to the latest international standards and we were the first independent lubricants manufacturer in South Africa to obtain the ISO 9000 certification. Flexilube is audited by TÜV Rheinland® and has been found to satisfy the requirements of ISO 9001:2015; 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 for the development, manufacture and supply of automotive & industrial oils and lubricants, metalworking fluids, greases, buyout lubricants and process oils (Registration No. 01 100 1420461; 01 104 1420472; 01 213 1420473).

Employees become part of the Flexilube family; the vast majority of our employees have earned their 10; 15; 20, 25 & 30 year service awards for their long-standing commitment to our business. They have truly invested themselves in the company; and we have made a firm commitment to support them and their own families by being an open and trustworthy employer. We have also created a clean, safe and friendly working environment for our staff.
