Les Mecoles founded Penrite Oil when he was only 16 years old. The beginnings of the empire he would go on to build were truly humble. His earliest batches of oil were made on his parents' kitchen stove in Melbourne's St. Kilda. Those early bursts of inspiration and ambition would help Les Mecoles and Penrite Oil guide drivers from Australia and all over the world to a better kind of engine oil.
Today – after having provided drivers all over the globe with an ever-expanding range of engine oils and complementary products for more than 90 years – Penrite Oils is at the top of their game. Of course, they remain 100% Australian owned, still operating out of Melbourne just like they did when Les founded the empire in his family kitchen.
Penrite Oil - An Award-Studded History
Penrite Oil has received armloads of awards over the course of their long and distinguished history. In 2017, their forward-thinking Enviro Box won AAAA’s Most Innovative New Packaging Gold Award — recognition for Penrite Oil’s trailblazing work in the field of environmentally-responsible packaging.
In addition to this well-deserved acknowledgement, they also received the Australian Packaging Covenant High Performer Award in 2015, the AAA Best Retail Catalogue Gold Award in 2013 for Touch Lube Guide, and many more! This history of achievement and recognition will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Penrite’s commitment to quality and their massive range of industry-leading products and engine accessories.
