Automechanika Dubai marks its 20th edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from October 2nd–4th, 2023.
Goodyear, one of the world’s largest tire companies, is poised to make its significant 4th impact with Goodyear-branded engine oils in the automotive, industrial, power generation and marine sectors. For the fourth time, Goodyear Lubricants will be showcasing a diverse range of over 100 varieties of Goodyear engine oils and specialty lubes, totaling over 400 SKUs for sale in the Middle East, Africa and parts of Asia.
Goodyear Lubricants are distributed exclusively by ALONSA ELECTRIC GROUP (a member of the Al Tara Group since 1978).

Alonsa is a diversified commerce group, with one of its business verticals being solely responsible for the marketing and distribution of automotive engine oils and specialties under the Goodyear brand.
In the 2023–2024 development plan, Egypt, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and South Africa are critical focal points for the company’s aggressive revenue outreach. It plans to establish additional distribution points across these zones. ALONSA has already set up distribution partners in over 26 countries for Goodyear lubricants since 2020 under its distribution program.
