About BRAD PENN®

Brad Penn® Refinery, Bradford, PA

The BRAD PENN® refinery is the home of “The Green Oil®” that racers, engine builders and enthusiasts alike have all come to know and love! Their Bradford, PA refinery is the oldest continuously operating lube oil refinery in the US, and still refines 100% Pennsylvania grade crude oil to this day.

The Kendall/Amalie refinery was purchased by American Refining Group, Inc. (ARG) from Witco Corporation, who sold their Kendall® and Amalie® brands to a third party. A new name was needed for the products produced at the site, and so the Brad Penn® line of Premium Pennsylvania Grade Lubricants was born.

  • Due to the consistency of their feedstocks, the quality of Brad Penn® products can be traced from the wellhead to the finished packaged product.
  • ARG’s refinery and blending and packaging operations are ISO 9001:2000 certified.
  • The Bradford, PA refinery was the first in the US to carry the ISO 9002 certification.
