A subsidiary of Vitafoam Nigeria Plc, Vitaparts Nigeria Limited, on Wednesday said it was set to revolutionise the automobile industry with the manufacture of oil filters for automobiles.
The Company’s Operations Manager, Eghosa Osadolor, in a statement to newsmen, said the innovation puts the company as the first to produce oil filters for automobiles in Nigeria.
He said that the parent company; Vitafoam, had over the years carved a niche for itself and transitioned from being a manufacturer of flexible, reconstituted and rigid foam products to offering complete household furniture solutions.
Osadolor said that the vision which birthed vitaparts stemmed from the need to offer tested and trusted oil filters and other automobile parts that would serve Nigerians and their automobiles.
“In demonstrating that innovative and forward-thinking attributes, the company has recently added to her numerous value-adding products in the automobile industry; the production of oil filters for automobiles.
“The product provides the best performance for automobile engines, it is optimized for both synthetic and conventional engine oils and has a minimum oil change interval of 10,000km,” he said.
Osadolor said the filters had been confirmed to meet international standards.
