Champion Brands Celebrates 65 Years

Champion Brands, LLC, a manufacturer of chemicals, lubricants, brake fluids, motor oils and additives, announced this week a year-long 65th anniversary celebration in 2021. Highlights of the year will be sponsorship of national & regional auto races, product contests, promotions, and special events.

Originally Lowe Oil Co. founded by Ralph Lowe in 1956, Champion Brands, LLC produces and blends more than 350 products including fuel, oil and engine additives, brake fluids and motor oils for the automotive, heavy truck, racing, performance, industrial, commercial, agricultural and specialty markets.

Champion understands the complexities of doing business in today’s market and is always looking for new and better ways to be more efficient and resourceful. Quality products are more than a commitment at Champion; high standards define the way it does business. Champion is an ISO 9001:2015 certified and registered company.

The company uses top tier additives and base stocks to formulate products for outstanding wear protection, fuel economy, high temperature stability, long-life protection, improved efficiency, oxidation resistance, lower evaporation, increased performance, friction reduction, and lubricant compatibility across a wide range of engine operating conditions and applications.

Headquartered in Clinton, MO, just 75 miles southeast of Kansas City, Champion’s 450,000 square foot plant with 30 loading bays 
accommodates more than 1.7 million gallons of bulk storage with convenient rail siding.

The plant has 10 filling lines and several blow molding machines including two Bekum 406 production units capable of blowing PVC and HDPE bottles, one Bekum 807D with 6-layer capability for containers up to 5 gallons and one AOKI PET Blow Molding Machine. Depending on the particular configuration, Champion is capable of producing well over 100,000 bottles per day. Three resin silos with over ½ million-pound capacity supply the blow molders.

The facility also houses state-of-the-art net weight and piston filling lines capable of filling 300+ containers per minute to exact weight specifications. Containers are de-palletized, labeled, filled, sealed, capped, coded, packed and palletized, using only 3 operators. Lines are capable of running metal, HDPE, PVC and PET containers in sizes ranging from 2.4 oz to 330 gallon totes.

The speed and versatility of these lines make it a high volume, cost effective solution for the many companies that private label and package product with Champion. Fluid blending and storage capacity includes over 100 tanks ranging from 1.5K to 34K gallons for blending lubricants, brake fluids and various chemicals.

Champion also has a very modern testing laboratory. While the lab’s primary function is to test the performance of products before they are packaged, the lab also has the tools to perform elemental analysis of fluids to blueprint the various components of different fluids or test used fluid. The talented R&D team formulates fluids that exceed API, ILSAC, ACEA, JASO, Dexos, and other OEM and global standards.

Most importantly, good people are the heart of Champion Brands, LLC. Passion, dedication, knowledge and a can-do attitude drive the growth of the company.
