|The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA), is pleased to announce that Keller-Heartt, a leading lubricant marketer in the Midwest, has joined with other industry stake-holders in supporting PQIA's efforts to help assure the quality and integrity of lubricants in the market.
Brian Mcgrath, President of Keller-Heartt says "Our decision to support the Petroleum Quality Institute of America was, in a large part, driven by the positive impact we have seen the organization make on the quality of lubricants in the market, particularly in the Midwest." Whereas we suspected there are significant issue with bad oils in the Midwest market, PQIA's testing and reporting shines a bright light on the depth and breadth of the problem and provides strong third party facts that consumers need to be aware of. In addition, PQIA is sending a clear message to lubricant manufactures and marketers that someone is watching." As we see it, Mcgrath says, "What PQIA is doing is good for consumers and good for the honest lubricant manufactures and marketers that have the best interest of consumers and end users in mind."
PQIA President Thomas F. Glenn says "We welcome Keller-Heartt's support and its commitment to quality demonstrated by its willingness, like all our supporters, to agree to our Code of Ethical Business Conduct. While it is clear we face serious challenges with poor quality off-spec engine oils and other lubricants in the market, we are encouraged to know that Keller-Heartt and our other supporters are willing to do something about it to protect consumers."
PQIAs mission is to serve the consumer of lubricants by testing and reporting on the quality and integrity of lubricants in the marketplace. It is expected that this improved visibility of quality will lead to wider conformance by lubricant manufacturers to specification and performance claims.
