EXPO: Rock Oil targets £25million turnover

Rock Oil says it has added £5million to its turnover since 2010 and is on target to hit £25m this year.

The oil producer supplies a number of industries, with bike lubricants representing 20 per cent of the total.

“It is our motorcycle products and our involvement in bike sport that generates that core business,” said Rock Oil MD Greg Hewitt.

Marketing manager Russell Bower adds: “Rock Oil is a family business built up over generations and has realised the potential in bike racing and competition for research and development and achieving technical excellence. It is therefore easy to appreciate that a brand that lubricates TT winners, superbikes and MX at world level offers superior lubrication for truck, bus, tractor and car. Bikes are our promotional tool in the oil business.”

Founded in 1928 and said to be growing year on year since the 1950s, Rock Oil became involved in bike sport with Kawasaki in the 1970s under the guidance of Charles Hewitt, who is now chairman. It now exports to 55 countries and further expansion is planned for their Warrington, Cheshire base.
