About the Samuels Group
Samuels Group is the holding company for a group of companies that have been acquired over the years that work together like a well-oiled engine.
The Group’s history is that it initially started as a wholesale and retail distribution company for fuel, lubricants, and gas with operation in KwaZulu-Natal. This distribution company was formed in 2000 and was known as BP Drakensberg.
In later years, after BP Drakensberg had changed its name to be Drakensberg Oil, there sparked interest in its operation from Puma Energy. And the wholesale distribution Drakensberg Oil was sold to Puma Energy.
About Samuels Oil
Samuels Oil is one of the group’s retail operating companies who has been in existence for 20 years. We aim to fully understand our customers’ needs and help clients achieve improved business results by distributing fuel, lubricants, and gas throughout South Africa.
As part of its retail operation, Samuels Oil is the sole distributor of Veedol Oil’s lubricants in South Africa.
Veedol Oil has a rich history within the automotive industry offering premium quality products that guarantee your vehicle will go the motoring distance with you. Veedol Oil products are available at all Samuels Oil and Samuels Service Centre sites. Not to mention, we supply a wide range of oils, finished lubricants including engine oil, synthetics, grease and more.
The Samuels Group later acquired wholesale distribution companies: Atlantic Oil and Aloe Oil which operate in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape.
We merged these companies into one wholesale company, Atlantic Oil. The focus of Atlantic Oil is the marketing and distribution of our product range to the retail, agriculture, transport, and domestic market.
Samuels believes that the only way to progress in business is to fully understand your customer’s needs.
We have developed an offer to customers for stringent management of their on-road fueling fleets, which we have trademarked as a fuel management system called Eye-Fuel.
The transport sector in South Africa is facing a huge fraud problem with fuel pilferage that is resulting in ever-increasing costs to the transport business and often drives businesses to closure.
One of our aims for the business is to make the administration as simple and easy as possible.
All report features are paperless and available to either a single fleet or major fleet customers.
We have built the system around electronics and devices whose operating systems are not clumsy or overly complex to use.
