Total Specialties USA and Mighty Distributing System enter new partnership

Linden, July 9, 2021 – Total Specialties USA is proud to announce a new partnership with auto parts wholesaler, Mighty Distributing System (Mighty Auto Parts), a leader in automotive aftermarket products and services. The TotalEnergies range of lubricants will be available in the Mighty network and will initially focus primarily on the Quartz Ineo & Quartz 9000 sub- ranges, designed for light vehicles and which exceed the most demanding requirements for European OEMs.

The Quartz Ineo and Quartz 9000 Energy ranges are formulated with Age-Resistance Technology to provide unbeatable engine protection with the highest level of performance and durability. The unique combination of hyperactive molecules creates a strong thick oil film on all concerned engine parts. Engines are protected against a variety of challenges, from wear to oil oxidation even at extreme temperatures and outstanding engine performance, even under frequent stop and start conditions.

At Total Specialties USA, we share the same beliefs and values as Mighty: proximity, focus to create value for customers, innovation and sustainability. We are excited to have the opportunity to grow the business of Mighty franchises together here in the United States”, according to Senior VP of Lubricants for Total Specialties USA, Franck Bagouet.

The addition of TotalEnergies’ range of lubricants to our product offerings reinforces our commitment to serve the ever-changing automotive service industry and our nationwide network of franchises with direct sourcing of quality automotive aftermarket products”, said VP of Operations for Mighty Distributing System, Sean Milligan.
