Profile of Lange Trinidad Limited
10th April 2017

Renowned as one of Trinidad and Tobago’s leading distributors in the automotive industry, Lange Trinidad Limited has been supplying quality products with excellent service to its customers since 1957. Originally established by Eric Joseph Lange as E.J. Lange & Co. Ltd, an auto parts commission agency and soon after, an insurance brokerage, the company has gone through several mergers and acquisitions with key partners. In 1999, the company took its current form when Lange Eighty demerged from a division of Skinner Marine, focusing on the retail of auto-parts, lubricants, and batteries, and retaining its role as an agency for Guardian Insurance Ltd. 

Lange Trinidad supplies lubricating oils for automotive, industry, commercial, and marine use, as well as Sampson lubrication equipment, including full dispension units and grease pumps. The company has an extensive inventory, with over 8,000 products in their portfolio, as well as exclusive distributorship for popular automotive brands, such as Gulf Oil Lubricants, Tokico Shocks, and Exedy Clutches. Lange Trinidad also manufacture TRACK, a locally-developed brand of batteries for automotive, marine, and industrial use that is sold and respected across the Caribbean region.  

Lange Trinidad’s reputation for excellence comes from its commitment to unparalleled customer service, through their competitive pricing, swift delivery service, and the premium products that they distribute and manufacture. The headquarters are located in a bespoke 44,000 sq. ft. facility at 8 Gaston Street, Lange Park, Chaguanas, with additional retail offices in San Fernando and Port-of-Spain. This widespread network ensures that each geographical region across Trinidad and Tobago has a dedicated team committed to high-caliber service in the locality.

It is this upholding of performance standards that earned Lange Trinidad Limited their official SME 2000 certification (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises Quality and Environmental Management System) in 2003, one of the first companies in the country to be given this award by the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards. Adding to its credentials, the company is also a member of the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry & Commerce.

Refreshingly, the company has a vocal and committed stance towards social and environmental responsibility to ensure that they adhere to their mission and values.  Lange Trinidad has paired with a local and an international NGO, Living Waters and United Way T&T respectively, to contribute to public welfare in the hope of a brighter future. They have also engaged with Recycling in Motion and Piranha International Limited to collect and safely dispose of plastics and E-waste. Along with the company’s specifically-designed procedures for handling and disposing of battery-acid and lubricants, these proactive steps aim to reduce the environmental impact of its operations. 

Furthermore, Lange Trinidad has enthusiastically supported the development of motorsport and powerboat racing in Trinidad and Tobago with their sponsorship of teams in offshore racing, karting, 4x4 off-roading and rallying. The successes of these teams is demonstrative of Lange Trinidad’s effective partnership working, their recognition and growth of local talent, along with the performance enhancing powers of their products. Their investment not only fuels the progress of local sport, but also creates important recreational opportunities for families and young people, while promoting safer driving practices.
