Challenging the conventional since 1984.
Peter Freudenberg founded Interlub in 1984 in Guadalajara, Mexico. With his great charisma and 20 years’ experience in the European and North American chemical industries, Peter attracted talent that would help him fulfill a very clear mission: To promote German specialized lubrication technology and culture in Mexico and the world.Learn more about our Founder.
We start with human beings.
Behind every company, industrial process, technological development, and success story are people. Their feelings, aspirations, and needs are the starting point for formulating our lubricants, organizational culture, and worldwide operations.
We win with diversity.
Beyond chemistry and mechanical engineering, we integrate a wide range of disciplines and perspectives into the development of our lubricants. Our international team of collaborators and scientific partners share their collective wisdom to improve throughput, reduce costs, and minimize environmental impacts.
We want to live in a world that flows better.
Our lubricants have the potential to transform entire industries—and the world. We develop new technologies that replace obsolete ones. Our breakthroughs make industrial processes more competitive and sustainable. A more sustainable industry brings us closer to a world that flows better.
Why do they call us “The Uncommon Lubricant Company”?
Frankly, we didn’t come up with this nickname. Rather, it came from hearing academics, allies, auditors, scientists, clients, collaborators, students, media, and members of the global innovation ecosystem repeat it hundreds of times: “What you guys do is not common.”
Perhaps it’s because we challenge some of the fundamental paradigms of our society, or because instead of “thinking big,” we think of the invisible. Or maybe it’s because instead of thinking about how to innovate, we innovate how we think. Either way, we wear this moniker on our sleeve.
