Lerato Dhladhla, Product and Brand Marketing Specialist at FUCHS Lubricants South Africa, explained: “This is in line with our strategy to increase exposure of Wm Penn products to retailers and automotive workshops for both large and smaller retail shops. The new packaging provides a cohesive look to this established brand. Smaller pack sizes will be introduced in the first quarter of 2019.”

Overall, we are planning a comprehensive increase in brand exposure to reintroduce the brand, the benefits and extensive range,” she said.
