About PTLube

In 1989 a group of workers at Esso’s European research centre formed a motorcycle club with an impressive 50 members from a total staff of around 250. We discovered several members used the new scottoilers but were unhappy about the quality of the motorcycle chain oil they supplied. We set about testing the oil to see why it was not performing as well as expected.  We then developed our own oil designed to be the best lubricant solution to maximise chain life. This new motorcycle chain oil has continued to developed and be used over the last 21 years by several of the remaining members of this club. These members continue to work in the lubricants industry in R&D (research and development) roles, others run motorcycle repairs, rider training and motorcycling holidays in France (See links). Having used the developed oil for over 20 years it has been decided unique lubricant be made available to others.

2011 the first steps to marketing our motorcycle chain oil were taken.  We launched at the NEC Motorcycle live in November 2011 after having completed company formation, patents and licences assessments, made a business plan and decided to risk the investment needed.  At the NEC we were jopined by PDoiler so now we could offer a delivery system to compete with scottoilers.  We also had room to fit a charity on our stand, something we started at the NEC and have continued.

2012 saw us go to shows all over the countr: Bikesafe 2012 with its rained off Sunday! Two shows at Billing; the central England bike show, and Bike fest, Eurojumble at Netley Marsh, and the Classic Motorcycle Show in Stafford.  Sales picking up a little, but still not enough to support full time emplyee.

PTlube teamed up with superbike cleaners to add their outstanding products to our portfolio.

2013 we have relocated
