HOUSTON, TX — Kendall Motor Oil, a brand of the ConocoPhillips Co. is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Founded in 1881 in Bradford, PA, the Kendall Refining Company relied upon innovative manufacturing to produce passenger car and heavy-duty engine oils under what is known today as the Kendall Motor Oil brand. The company’s commitment to research and technological development has made Kendall Motor Oil one of the world’s most respected lubricant brands.
“We are thrilled that the Kendall Motor Oil brand has reached such an incredible milestone,” said Gary Balzhiser, manager, Commercial Lubricants, ConocoPhillips Company. “The long-standing heritage of the Kendall Motor Oil brand has been made possible through the efforts of dedicated employees and marketers who ensure the consistent performance and service that loyal customers expect and appreciate.”
Kendall Motor Oil’s reputation includes an impressive number of “firsts” in the lubricant industry. Kendall Penzbest was the first motor oil fully reinforced to extend drain intervals from 500 to 2000 miles. As “The 2,000 Mile Oil,” Penzbest was the inspiration for Kendall Motor Oil’s two fingered “V” logo, which symbolized the creation of motor oil that could be used for 2000 miles in the high speed cars of the early 1920’s.
