Over a century of quality
The history of MOL Lubricants dates back to 1907, when the Vacuum Oil Company’s lubricants factory began production in Almásfüzitő, Hungary. The century that has passed since then transformed the company into what it is today - MOL-LUB Ltd., member of MOL Group. More than one hundred years’ experience, a first rate technological background and valuable expertise have together contributed to the company’s continuously growing range of lubricants and chemicals and established the basis for regional expansion.
