Lyden Oil Company Joins to Support PQIA’s Efforts to Help Assure the Quality and Integrity of Lubricants in the Market
The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) is pleased to announce that Lyden Oil Company, one of the leading lubricant distributors in the United States, has joined PQIA’s growing list of supporters committed to helping assure the quality and integrity of lubricants in the market.
Founded in 1919, Lyden Oil Company is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated business. The company specializes in bulk industrial, automotive, commercial, agricultural and food-grade lubricants, service chemicals and has recently launched a line of Diesel ForceTM comprehensive diesel maintenance products for diesel engines nationwide. Lyden Oil Company focuses on its core principles of selling Quality Products with Excellent Service at Competitive Prices and is now one of the largest distributors of lubricants, service chemicals and comprehensive diesel maintenance products in the country.
Lyden Oil Company has strong relationships with the most respected manufacturers in the industry including Motorcraft, Phillips 66, Kendall, Gulf Lubricants, Honda Lubricants, Red Line, CITGO, Quaker Chemical, DuBois, and Summit. They also market Gulf SelectTM service chemicals, Diesel ForceTM comprehensive diesel maintenance products and their own brand of ProguardTM API licensed lubricants. Lyden has a complete service department that installs and maintains bulk lubricant equipment, and they are authorized distributors of Balcrank, Graco and Alemite products. This enables the company to provide customers with individualized lubricant solutions to better meet their needs.
Laura Lyden, Lyden Oil Co. Sales & Operations Manager says, “Lyden Oil Company is proud to support PQIA’s efforts because they are consistent with our focus on providing our customers with the highest Quality Products available in the marketplace. We feel that our support of PQIA gives our customers the additional assurance that our commitment to quality is being monitored by a third-party organization. Lyden Oil Company was also one of the founding members of API’s Motor Oil Matters program. PQIA’s education and awareness programs are helping end users make good decisions about lubricant purchases and are moving the lubricants industry in a positive direction.”
“We welcome and appreciate Lyden Oil Company’s support and its commitment to quality as demonstrated by its agreement to adhere to the PQIA Code of Conduct,” says Thomas F. Glenn, President of PQIA. Further Glenn adds, “It is with the support of Lyden Oil and others that we have the resources to continue to pursue our mission to serve the consumer of lubricants by testing and reporting on the quality and integrity of lubricants in the marketplace.”
Lyden Oil Company now joins the ranks of a number of other lubricant distributors that have stepped up to support the PQIA program. Understanding that distributors are responsible for delivering nearly 80% of the lubricants sold in the US, Glenn says, “Lyden Oil Company’s support, along with that of other distributors, speaks volumes about the distributor channel’s commitment to delivering quality products to their customers.” In addition to distributors, the PQIA program is supported by a number of major and independent lubricant manufacturers, additive manufacturers, coolant manufactures, and others in the lubricants business.
