Bagouet joins Total Specialties USA as a 30-year veteran of Total, the last five being with Total Canada.

“I am very eager to begin this next chapter,” commented Bagouet. “The United States presents an exciting market for the lubricants business and I look forward to meeting that challenge.

Bagouet will be based in the company’s Linden, NJ technical headquarters and blending facility, overseeing staff in Houston, TX and across the USA.
