More than 140 years under the hood

For more than 140 years – longer, in fact, than any other lubricant maker – the Valvoline brand has been serving the needs of automotive customers across the globe. Today, Valvoline premium automotive and industrial lubricants are manufactured, marketed and sold in more than 100 countries.

Over the years, our family of well-known brands has grown to include MaxLife™ lubricant products for vehicles with 75,000 or more miles; NextGen™ motor oil, created with 50 percent recycled oil; Premium Blue™ commercial lubricants; MaxLife™ and Zerex™ antifreeze; and Valvoline Professional Series™ automotive chemicals. We also operate Valvoline Instant Oil Change™, the second-largest franchised quick-lube chain in the United States, with approximately 870 locations.

A lot has changed with engine technologies since 1873 when Dr. John Ellis registered the name Valvoline as the world’s first trademarked lubricant brand. However, there’s one thing that has stayed the same – Valvoline’s commitment to performance, quality and innovation – both on the racetrack and in your car at home.

Valvoline-brand products offer:

● prolonged engine life,
● enhanced fuel economy,
● cold-start protection,
● advanced soot and carbon-deposit control, and
● protection against heat and wear.
