What do you do?
Concerned in the supply of specialist oils and lubricants to the manufacturing, commercial, automotive, agricultural and marine industries.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Shale gas exploration. However, only if it is delivered with minimal impact on the land and local communities receive a share of the profits through local workforces, supply chains and investment in infrastructure.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
There seems to be a shift in more control over the claims made by smaller independent blenders as to the specification of products. This is long overdue and will weed out cheap generic ineffective lubricants.
What is your biggest goal right now?
My focus at present is to get a bigger share of the manufacturing industry in my area as I feel it is the manufacturing industry that usually gets a raw deal when procuring lubrication for their machinery.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
I’m almost entering my seventh year of business and feel now is the right time to expand. I have made a lot of connections with the right people in the industry and have access to many big brand oils which I can bring to SME’s cost effectively. I’m now looking at bringing in a partner with vision who has a lot of experience and industry and lubrication knowledge.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
I believe everyone should have access to quality products. Sure quality costs but that doesn’t necessarily mean its bank breaking. The big oil companies only want large volume customers and as such only they get the best pricing. Otherwise users only have access to cheap ineffective lubrication that costs more in the long run due to breakdowns. Oils U Need fills this gap in the market and focuses’ on SME’s delivering quality lubricants cost effectively. We have access to the worlds biggest lubricant manufacturers with unrivalled support from Fuchs Lubricants UK.
