Initially the company restricted its activities to the manufacture and sale of monograde engine oils and a selection of industrial cleaning products.

  • In 1964, with the modernization and expansion of the company, multigrade oils of SAE grades 10W-30 and 20W-50 were added to the range, whilst the range of car care products and cleaners was extended to include specialist items for bicycles and motorcycles. In the following years the range of car care products was steadily increased and the lubricants offered were extended to include the manufacture of semi-and fully synthetic oils.

  • Construction and extension of the premises for the purpose of modernization and expansion of the production area in 1974.

  • Product range extended to include semi-synthetic and fully synthetic engine and gear oils. Expansion of the distribution network and the first brand re-launch in 1985.

Nowadays, many businesses from the automotive, engineering, steel and construction sectors, as well as mining, agriculture and transport companies rely on RAVENOL-branded oils and lubricants, and RAVENOL products are now available to both commercial enterprises and motorists in over 80 countries.

  • Intensification of international sales activities. Renewed modernization of the production area in 1993.
