From small beginnings in 1926, Les Mecoles, 16 years old, founded Penrite Oil Company from his parents’ home in St.Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. The first batches of oil were made on his mother’s kitchen stove and delivered to service stations, milling factories and the local shipping port using his father’s wheelbarrow.
Oils were manufactured from the highest quality lubricants from Pennsylvania (PEN) base stocks, regarded at the time as the best in the world. Only the right oils (RITE) would ever be sold to local customers, hence PENRITE, where its unique name gained trust and respect amongst many.
In 1979, Les Mecoles, suffering from poor health, sold the company to John and Margaret Dymond. John’s 20 years experience in, not only the oil industry, but also the additive market gave him the background and knowledge he needed to take up the challenge of his own company, Penrite Oil.
Today, Penrite continues to be 100% Australian owned and managed by Toby and Nigel Dymond from Melbourne, continuing on the core values and philosophy of the business.
