Vickers Oils: Yesterday, Today and into the Future…

Vickers Oils started trading in 1828 and remains a private, independent company now led by the 5th generation of the family to work in the company.

We enjoy a worldwide reputation as a reliable and innovative supplier of high performance, speciality marine lubricants, which are supported by our dedicated customer service team, offering our customers ‘one to one’ technical support.

In 2002 Vickers Oils launched the world’s first biodegradable sterntube oil, HYDROX BIO, which quickly became the industry standard.

Now, after serving the marine industry with mineral based lubricants for more than one hundred years, our main focus for the future is the continued development of our award winning Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant range.

In May 2013 we recently celebrated 100 years as a Limited Company. To view the newsletter we had commissioned in celebration of this event please click here.
