About us Get in touch

From small beginnings in 1926, Les Morcoles founded Penrite Oil Company, soon purchasing his first factory in Melbourne, manufacturing high-quality lubricants from Pennsylvania base stocks, regarded at the time as the best in the world.

In 1979, due to ill health, Les sold the company to John Dymond, Lubrizol’s Australian national sales manager, a mechanical engineer by trade and a car enthusiast at heart, who rapidly expanded the Penrite range of products.

John’s technical background and commitment to quality ensured that Penrite continued to produce the best possible product for every application and this philosophy, implemented by John in 1979, remains a core value of the company to this day.

Penrite’s metalworking fluids (the Rite range) are no exception, providing peace of mind and sublime performance to engineers globally.

The Penrite Oil Company remains proudly family owned. The company’s growth from Australia and New Zealand into the Pacific rim and the US now includes the UK, Europe and Africa, where passion of Penrite’s employees maintains the same commitment to quality of product and service that first began back in 1926.
