NORTH KINGSTOWN, Rhode Island — Howes Lubricator Products recently announced the acquisition of US Lube, bringing together two families of additives to the driving public.

“It is a partnership that we are really charged up about,” Robert B. Howes, president and CEO of Howes Lubricator said. “We share a common cause: bringing professional grade, problem solving products to our customers. Together we can not only provide a wider range of products, but build on our reputation as a trusted company in the additive industry.”

US Lube President Dave Latimer agreed.

“We just blended really well with Howes and are excited to go forward with a common philosophy,” Latimer said. “Knowing the reputation of Howes Lubricator and its longevity in the business was a major deciding factor.”

Howes also says to expect the same great products, with a new look.

“Initially, we will be supplying US Lube products in their original packaging, but we will be working on packaging more in line with the Howes Lubricator brand,” he said.

Howes said his company fully expects a smooth transition, providing a wider variety of products while maintaining its dedication to quality, affordability and unmatched customer service.
