Our Philosophy

The specific selection and design of metalworking fluids will optimize performance in most metalworking processes. The more challenging the metalworking process is, the greater the benefit that is derived from using a metalworking fluid designed specifically for the application. For this reason our technical staff works closely with customers and thoroughly reviews each application before making a recommendation. Our solutions can involve modifying products from our product line or custom engineering new products to achieve optimal performance for our customers. It is not unusual for the resulting savings to be greater than the cost of the metalworking fluid.

Clark Oil is continuously investing in new technologies to keep our customers at the cutting edge of metalworking performance. Our full service on-site laboratory supports our sales and customer service efforts to provide our customers with creative, engineered solutions for their metalworking needs. We believe exceptional service and performance are critical to building strong and mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers.
