Phillips 66 Lubricants
“Phillips 66 is one of the largest finished lubricants suppliers in the United States. It manufactures and
markets three major lubricant brands: Phillips 66®, Kendall® and Red Line®. These diverse brands
share more than 400 years of lubricants industry experience, supplying a number of private label and
original equipment manufacturers throughout North America.
Phillips 66 Lubricants is firmly established in key lubricants markets, including automotive, trucking,
agriculture, aviation, mining, industrially, power generation and construction.
Phillips 66 traces its history back to 1905, when brothers Frank and L.E. Phillips struck oil in
Oklahoma, leading to the 1917 launch of Phillips Petroleum Company. Phillips 66 introduced its first
multi-grade motor oil in 1954, TropArtic® All Season.
In 1979, it launched the aviation industry’s first multi-viscosity, ashless dispersant oil, X/C®. Phillips
66 branded products are highly regarded in a variety of industries, including the automotive, aviation,
agriculture, construction, snowmobile, motorcycle, marine and industrial segments
Kendall Motor Oil enjoys a dramatic heritage. The Kendall Refining Company was founded in 1881 in
Bradford, PA, to refine local grade crude oil into kerosene, lubricants and greases. The Kendall brand
has introduced a number of significant industry firsts, including the first oil designated for winter use,
the first prepackaged and factory sealed one-quart oil can, as well as the first 2,000-mile motor oil,
which prompted the introduction of the brand’s iconic Two Finger logo.
Kendall’s groundbreaking ways continue today. In 2008, the exclusive Liquid Titanium protection
additive was introduced into its oils, providing fuel savings and exceptional engine wear protection,
reflected in the expression, “Long Live the Engine.” The Kendall brand is highly regarded in the
passenger car and heavy-duty engine oil segments and continues to grow today
Since 1979, Red Line Synthetic Oil has grown to manufacture more than 100 quality products,
including motor oils, gear oils, assembly lubes, fuel additives, and its popular WaterWetter cooling
additive for the automotive, motorcycle, marine, and industrial markets. Based in Benicia, California,
Red Line has a reputation with racers and enthusiasts alike for creating products that perform and
protect better than any on the market, regardless of price.
Red Line formulates fully-synthetic oils and chemically-advanced additives using the world's finest
base stocks. Rather than cutting costs by blending in petroleum products, Red Line's motor oils and
gear oils use superior ester base stocks that provide extreme stability at high temperatures and
superior film strength at lower viscosities where more power can be produced.
