More about the competition

Bouwer, who purchased 800ℓ of Engen’s Agritrac Super Universal Oil in November last year, said the prize could not have come at a better time as he was celebrating his birthday on the day of the handover ceremony. Aimed at the agricultural sector, the Engen Win a Tractor competition ran from September to December 2019.

To qualify, all customers had to do was to buy 400ℓ of product from their nearest participating co-op. Zama Dyaphu, Indirect Sales Manager for Engen Lubricants handed over the keys to Bouwer who thanked Engen for the wonderful prize. 

“I have long appreciated the quality and reliability of Engen’s products and vow to continue to support Engen in the future, especially because of the support they have given to the agricultural community,” commented Bouwer.

He added that he is looking forward to next year’s competition so that he could try to win again. Bouwer thanked Hinterland Co-op for their continued support and excellent customer service.

The essential socio-economic role of agriculture

Dyaphu acknowledged the essential socio-economic role of agriculture. “Farmers are an important part of our business and society because without them we would not have any food,” said Dyaphu. 

“At Engen we work together with the farming community, to ensure that we provide the support and quality product that they require.”

As a show of support, Engen offers a number of other exciting competitions and initiatives to the agricultural community. Dyaphu congratulated the lucky winner. “I know that you will put your new tractor to good use,” he added. – Press release, Engen
