Sep 1, 2006 12:00 PM
ConocoPhillips Co has announced that the Kendall Motor Oil brand is celebrating its 125th anniversary.
Founded in 1881 in Bradford PA, the Kendall Refining Co relied upon innovative manufacturing to produce passenger car and heavy-duty engine oils under what is known today as the Kendall Motor Oil brand.
Kendall Motor Oil's reputation includes a number of “firsts” in the lubricant industry. Kendall Penzbest was the first motor oil fully reinforced to extend drain intervals from 500 to 2,000 miles. As “The 2,000 Mile Oil,” Penzbest was the inspiration for Kendall Motor Oil's two-fingered “V” logo, which symbolized the creation of motor oil that could be used for 2,000 miles in the high-speed cars of the early 1920s.
