The LIQUI MOLY company

With over 4,000 items and innovative workshop solutions, it is one of the few full-range suppliers in the world.

Based in Ulm, the German company specializes in the production and worldwide sale of automotive chemicals such as lubricants, additives and care products as well as workshop solutions. In its home market, this medium-sized company is voted the best oil brand year after year.

Full product diversity and comprehensive service world

Motor oils and additives are the two most important pillars of LIQUI MOLY. The company also sells gear oils, greases, pastes, adhesives and products for service and vehicle care. With this extensive range, LIQUI MOLY serves almost every vehicle sector. For example, there are special product lines for motorcycles, classic cars, electric vehicles, bicycles, garden equipment, boats, small aircraft, the camping sector, commercial vehicles, construction machinery and industrial applications.

In addition to its wide range of products, the lubricant company also offers its partners and customers support and service concepts as well as tools and equipment. The range of services includes personal support for the workshops by more than 100 sales representatives in Germany, an internationally accessible service hotline at the company headquarters in Ulm with technical experts, training courses, marketing measures and support with legal obligations.

Top quality thanks to research and development in Germany

To ensure the consistently high quality of the goods, LIQUI MOLY produces its oils and additives exclusively in Germany. “We want to be the best, not the cheapest,” says Managing Director Günter Hiermaier.

In its in-house, state-of-the-art laboratory, the LIQUI MOLY team rises to every technical challenge by developing tailor-made products and individual solutions to problems. That’s why LIQUI MOLY stands for innovations, such as special biological products based on renewable raw materials. The company plays an important international role in the field of problem solving with regard to modern motor oil development, e.g. with oils to prevent low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) or fuel economy oils that reduce fuel consumption.

Its own production facility in Ulm now fills more than 18 million cans a year for additives alone – and the trend is rising. LIQUI MOLY produces around 90,000 t of lubricants per year, which are sold in more than 150 countries. The majority of these are automotive products. The same high quality standards apply to all products worldwide.

Environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and compliance with the strictest specifications are particularly important for LIQUI MOLY.

Sport-loving and values-based by tradition

LIQUI MOLY not only has the technical and professional expertise, but also stands for humanity. This is because really living the corporate values as well as the ideas, creative power and dedication of the co-entrepreneurs form the basis for continuous growth. In order to secure this, the company regularly creates new jobs and is consistently committed to Germany as a business location.

LIQUI MOLY traditionally maintains a close connection to motorsports. The company is currently involved in the MotoGP motorbike championship, in which every team of Moto2 and Moto3 rides with oil by LIQUI MOLY. And the company also active in sponsoring the supreme discipline of motorsport, Formula 1. In addition to the partnerships with various motorsport events and teams, LIQUI MOLY is also involved internationally and regionally in various sports events and teams as a sponsor.

Origin of the company and origin of the company name

Founded in 1957, LIQUI MOLY’s beginnings go back decades. The first product was an oil additive that contains the solid lubricant molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) to protect the engine against wear. Today, after more than 65 years, this oil additive is still being produced. This additive is also where the company name comes from: LIQUI, because it is a liquid additive, and MOLY because of the molybdenum disulfide.
