From heavy-duty diesel engine oils and tractor hydraulic fluids to motor oils, industrial fluids and greases, GROWMARK is a leading manufacturer and supplier of lubricant products through the FS System.
GROWMARK’s lubricant marketing manager Tom Drew says the lubricants division includes a wide range of products and brands. “We also have Archer lubricants, United lubricants, we do private label and we provide products for original equipment manufacturers,” Tom told me at GROWMARK’s recent Dieselex Gold Rush. “We have introduced a new product, a synthetic blend 10W-30 that’s now part of our Suprex Gold ESP line.”
Because fuel has always been an integral part of the FS System, lubricants have been important as well. “The lubricants and the fuels go together very well because all the equipment out there take both,” Tom said.
The FS lubricants division manufactures a large variety of products for the agricultural, commercial, industrial and consumer sectors at its recently renovated lubricant manufacturing facility in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “For the past year we’ve been expanding and adding new processes so we can do more things in house that we would have other companies do for us before,” said Tom, noting that they can do custom blending at the plant. “If someone has a specific application, we can do a 2,000 gallon custom blend for them for that specific need.”
