RAVENOL is the brand name of the Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH which was founded in 1946 in the small town of Werther in Westphalia by Hans Triebel. 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.

The 1990s saw continuous expansion of sales activities at an international level and the RAVENOL brand gradually became known throughout many areas of the world. 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.

We at RAVENOL recognise the growing demands being made by industries worldwide regarding diversity and quality, and are committed to extending and improving the RAVENOL product range. We understand that growth and modernisation is always a necessary ongoing process in order to be competitive in the increasingly complex technical lubricants market.

The strategy of sustained growth was underlined by a comprehensive re-launch of the brand in autumn 2012. This forward- thinking policy is especially visible in the new product packaging, which has been modernized and optimized in both design and function.

Now RAVENOL is visually innovative, with modern and reliable products, and with a passion for excellence in lubrication. We are proud of our technology - "Made in Germany".

 70 Years RAVENOL

In 2016, ‘Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH’ with their trademark RAVENOL are celebrating a big anniversary. The success story of the lubricants manufacturer based in the German city of Werther, Ostwestfalen – a global player today – began 70 years ago. And ever since, the RAVENOL products have been standing for high quality and standards – a fact that always has been appreciated by our customers and long-term partners.

Having started with single-grade engine oils, greases and different technical cleaning products, the company later – in the 1960s – also developed multigrade oils. In the course of the growing demands the technology had to cope with, RAVENOL responded with high-quality top class products and extended their international distribution areas.

After decades of pursuit of perfection, always combined with our traditional values, we now – in 2016 – can look back on 70 years of company history. A fact that is making us truly proud.
