Founded in 1866, Valvoline™ – the petroleum industry’s first U.S. trademarked motor oil brand’s lubricants, chemicals and car products are available in more than 160 countries and territories worldwide. Valvoline™ is celebrating it’s 150th anniversary in 2016 worldwide.
VALVOLINE – THE WORLD’S FIRST… WORLD’S FINEST
Dr. John Ellis founded Valvoline in 1866 when he discovered the lubricating properties of distilled crude oil. As Valvoline™ entered the 20th century, it continued to gain traction in the auto world and became recommended oil for the iconic Ford Model T, making Valvoline™ a household name as vehicle ownership rapidly expanded. The brand extended its product offerings internationally, and Valvoline’s groundbreaking innovation continued, successfully pioneering one of the world’s first aircraft engine motor oils (1910). Valvoline™ introduced Valvoline Racing Motor Oil to the world in the mid 1960s. Its superior technology was developed to better protect engines in high-stress situations and met the needs of the “muscle car craze” of the era.
