Wallover Oil Co., Strongsville, Ohio, marks its 150th anniversary in business in 2013. Founded in 1863, the company is the oldest independent manufacturer of lubricants in the U.S. Today the company has three manufacturing facilities and distribution across the country.
A year ago Wallover purchased Commonwealth Oil Co., Harrow, Ont., to expand its presence into Canada and add some niche markets. In the past year, the company has added to its sales team and expanded its warehouses as well.
