Engen is an African-based energy group focused on the refining and marketing of petroleum and petroleum-based products. It also has an extensive retail network. Founded in 1887, Engen is the market leader in South Africa, with around 3500 employees. It exports to more than 30 territories, mostly in Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.

With offices in 30 Sub-Saharan African countries and Indian Ocean islands, supporting a vast network of depots, terminals, facilities and warehouses, Engen’s corporate structure is complex, challenging and extensive, placing great demands on its IT infrastructure. “We have two MPLS networks for corporate and retail. The corporate network connects our branch offices, regional offices, refinery and depots,” explains Nicholas Lain, Architecture Specialist at Engen.
