The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) is pleased to announce Royal Mfg Co. LP. has joined PQIA’s growing list of lubricant manufacturers, marketers, additive suppliers, and other supporters working to help assure the quality and integrity of motor oils, transmission fluids, and other lubricants in the market.
Royal Mfg Co. is a leading manufacturer and marketer of lubricants and greases in the United States and around the world, both in Royal brand and private label manufacturing. Bill Mallory, owner and CEO of Royal Mfg Co., says “We welcome the opportunity to support PQIA’s efforts to help assure the quality of lubricants in the market. Our commitment to delivering quality lubricants aligns well with PQIA’s efforts to help assure consumers, installers, and end users receive quality lubricants that adhere to industry standards.” To this, Mallory adds, “PQIA is making a difference and we want to help support its efforts because it’s in the best interest of our industry and the customers we serve.”
Thomas F. Glenn, president of the Petroleum Quality Institute of America says, “We appreciate Royal Mfg Co.’s support and commitment to quality. While it is clear we still face challenges to protect consumers from poor quality off-spec engine oils and other lubricants in the market, we are making progress. And, it is with the help of Royal Manufacturing and our other supporters that PQIA is able to continue its work to help clean up the market and protect consumers.”
To date, PQIA has identified over 25 different brands of packaged motor oils and ATFs on retail shelves that can cause damage to car engines or transmissions. In addition, dozens more brands have been found that fail a claimed specification or are labeled with false or misleading claims.
