As iron started to smelt, the performance requirements increased dramatically. As man went beyond steam engines and factories sprang up everywhere, as oil became essential, Motul went a step further.
Engineering limitations had started to fade when Motul started its very first enterprise in 1853. The Industrial Revolution had just turned the world upside down, Motul seized the opportunity by focusing on innovation excellence. Meticulously considering every step of the industrial process and envisioning automotive growth, Motul did not simply aim to create the right oil for the right purpose, Motul aimed to harness the knowledge gained at every step and use it to its ultimate potential by gathering together the most ingenious innovations.
Constantly exercising its right to invent, Motul displays a dedication to the best, from its suppliers, through its innovation to its clients. From Pennsylvania’s first oil rig to the brand’s latest laboratory, the unfolding quest for improvement fuels the company day-to-day, innovation-to-innovation. 1966 was a hallmark year in Motul’s pursuit of invention with the creation of Century 2100, the inaugural semi synthetic oil, hailed by the whole automotive sphere as the industry’s next catalyst to high performance. Inspired by Motul’s 300 victories in competition and enabled by this semi synthetic technology forerunner, the 300V product was born in 1971, becoming the very first fully synthetic oil on the worldwide market. Using today’s technology, 300V is considered as the reference in motorsports.
In parallel to its automotive business, MotulTech has developed high performance metalworking fluids and lubrication products to address the highly demanding needs from the growing worldwide industrial business world since 1989.
Passion is what unites lovers of engineering to their machinery, the same passion that Motul puts into innovation. The Ingenuity connection established between Motul and its community, whether they are professionals or not, is the main key to achieving the unachievable, to pushing beyond common criteria and to fundamentally building long-lasting efficiency.
Backing their customers’ projects is the promise that Motul makes to them in a way that no-one else would. Turnkey solutions are good and complete, but optimised answers are better. Motul’s devotion breaks down boundaries and creates a real artistry, the artistry that only the unity of wisdom and experience can create, the artistry that never rests, the artistry that is always evolving.
