Rock Oil is proud to announce the launch of an innovative new range of light commercial fleet lubricants, VAN-GUARD®. We realised that standard automotive or commercial lubricants are not the ideal solution for protecting LCV engines, so we've specially engineered a series of bespoke products VAN-GUARD® to cover the LCV market. They are OEM specific and approved products, meaning they can be used throughout the whole life of your vehicles, including during the warranty period.

The VAN-GUARD® range also includes high performance support products include FUEL-GUARD C - a diesel fuel additive designed to increase fuel efficiency, the ATF Range of automatic transmission fluids, the gear oil range of gearbox and transmission fluids, and ancillary items including anti-freeze, cleaners and greases for gearboxes, axle and bearings and suspension systems.

For more information, downloadable product brochures and a suitability guide visit the VAN-GUARD® product information page.

Rock Oil Breaks New Ground

This past week saw the start of a major redevelopment of the company’s manufacturing site in Warrington, Cheshire. Increased global demand for the brand has resulted in the need to expand and to ensure the business can satisfy all future customer requirements. The first phase of the project is a brand new Research & Development centre. This 10,000 square foot building will house one of the finest independent laboratories in the country and staff across technical, sales, marketing and senior management. With over a million pounds worth of technical equipment, the facility will be at the cutting edge of the lubricants industry. The current laboratory already runs 20,000 quality control tests a year and works with major OEM’s, having factory approvals from the likes of Volkswagen and Mercedes Benz to name but two. Rock prides itself on both its quality and diverse range of products and this new facility will only enhance the business’s ability to produce the very finest lubricants possible.

Rock Oil is one of the few remaining blenders of lubricants still manufacturing in the UK and has worked with multiple British and World champions across various motorsport disciplines. Rock Oil is currently the official lubricant partner of the British Superbike Series which is the biggest domestic motorcycle race series in the world.

Current sponsored athletes include Tai Woffinden the current world speedway champion and Dougie Lampkin 12 time World Trial champion. Rock Oil powered the Gearlink Kawasaki of Alistair Seeley when he broke the record for most race wins at this year’s North West 200 and lubricated Ian Hutchinson’s Padgetts Honda record 5 race wins round the famous Isle of Man circuit in 2010. Rock Oil is synonymous with quality and performance and the new R&D centre will ensure they continue to produce the very best lubricants possible for future champions.

The company is rightly proud to be a British manufacturer and has always been based in Warrington since its inception nearly 90 years ago. It is still a family firm albeit one that has nearly 100 employees and exports to nearly 70 countries worldwide.

Rock Oil is one of very few remaining British lubricant manufacturers and has been involved with motorcycling and motorsport for well over 30 years. 2016 sees the continuation of the partnership with the British Superbike Series and is the official lubricant to the championship.

Beside the partnership with the BSB series itself, we will be working with the largest ever roster of teams and riders. British Superstock rider Johnny Blackshaw now works for the company will be flying the flag both on and off the track. The off road arena is taken care of, with the ongoing partnership with Dave Thorpe’s Factory Buildbase Honda outfit, Heads & Threads Suzuki, Phoenix Tools Honda and Trials Legend, Dougie Lampkin. Rock are also working with two Enduro heavyweights in Paul Edmondson and Wayne Braybrook ensuring the brand profile is high in this extremely popular discipline. There are many, many others and as usual they will have a number of world class speedway riders including current world champion Tai Woffinden, Matej Zagar & Chris Harris all flying the Rock Oil flag.

In the 4 wheel arena the long standing and successful partnership with Japspeed continues in the British Drift Championship. We also embark on our second year with SWR in the Formula 4 series and Albatec in Rally Cross. Both teams are near the top of the tree in terms of profile and the Rock brand is prominent on both machines. A new partnership for 2016 is the tie up with Maximum Motorsport which means branding on a touring car and series sponsorship of both the VAG trophy and the VAG cup.

It’s fair to say 2016 see’s the brand more prominent than ever and we look forward to a fantastic year with our racing partners.
