On 19th March 1899, Charles ‘Cheers’ Wakefield set up an oil company in England. Ten years later, he produced a new lubricant that would revolutionise transport in the first half of the Twentieth Century. He called the new oil Castrol. To this day this name is synonymous with premium quality, high performance and leading edge technology in lubrication

Castrol products were tested and proved at the very limits of endurance…a technique we continue to this day. Many of our lubricants that started out as competition grades have become available to the everyday motorist, allowing millions of people worldwide to share in the benefits of race-proven technology. For example the Land Speed Record alone has been broken an amazing 21 times by cars using Castrol lubricants.

With more than one hundred years of experience in satisfying our customers’ needs, we remain as committed today to providing the most technically advanced lubricants and services as was Charles Cheers Wakefield when he founded our company.
