In the industrial lubricants space where myriad players are competing to stay ahead, a 50-year-old company continues to be at the helm proving to be a game-changer in providing superior industrial lubricants and chemicals. Starting as a family-owned gas station in 1965, Hasco Oil Company prides itself on its journey to a manufacturer and leading distributor of industrial lubricants in California.
Drawing on its rich heritage, Hasco Oil caters to a growing and diverse customer base across varied industry verticals such as automotive, government, military, construction, marine, electrical, and consumer goods, with a predominant focus on aerospace. Their core clientele comprises manufacturers making a part for an airplane, rocket, or satellite. Over the years, the evolution in customer requirements has challenged manufacturers to reduce costs and improve productivity. “We have come up with different technologies whereby our customers can use less fluid and therefore cut costs, and gain improvement in part quality, which translates to high efficiency and reduced waste,” says Richard Camper, Executive Vice President, Hasco Oil
Camper draws attention to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concepts that are fast gaining traction. More and more manufacturing companies, especially key players like Boeing and Airbus, have made ESG a core concept of their mission statement and are looking for lubricant manufacturers or suppliers who strictly adhere to these concepts. Hasco Oil has risen to the challenge, rendering products that focus on tangible business improvement without losing sight of the environmental impact.
“We introduce fluids that have no boron, chlorine, biocides, or any harmful additives, addressing the heightened environmental concerns,” says Camper. The company’s “green” initiative of equipping manufacturers with eco-friendly industrial lubricants also

ensures a safe work environment for employees. HascoOil shows and teaches its customers how to effectively take care of and maintain fluids to enhance performance and efficiency.
The company is all set to embrace solutions featuring the latest technologies that address heat-resistant exotic metals like titanium stainless steels and nickel alloys, which are becoming important and popular among the manufacturers and their customers. The fluids used to machine steel may not be suitable for other metals, implying the need for specificity in fluids. “HascoOil makes sure that the fluids we provide address the differences in machining metals,” explains Camper.
In an implementation highlight, a major aerospace machining company was looking for cutting fluids that will best improve their total operating costs and meet their fluid requirements, including aerospace approval, global availability, and semi-synthetic chemistry for a range of machining metals. Hasco Oil provided a new technology to address all the client’s requirements, taking into account the environmental and workplace safety concerns while improving the bottom line. The solution helped the client to bring a 73 percent reduction in total cost.
Over the 50 years, Hasco Oil has carved a name in the marketplace as an established industrial lubricant provider and has long set the standard in industrial technical expertise. In the wake of the COVID, when businesses are looking for novel approaches in their business operations to meet the newfangled challenges of operational efficacy and safety measures, Hasco Oil is focused on educating its clients and helping them make informed decisions. The company takes a consultative stance in helping clients make proactive decisions in terms of utilizing the best lubricants for their work processes and gaining optimal ROI. The company has recently embarked on an aggressive digital marketing campaign, aimed at reaching as many people as possible with focused messages around workplace safety.
“The 50 plus years of experience and expertise provides us a giant database of knowledge that enables us to act as a go-to resource for our customers helping them evolve and pivot their organizations,” Camper signs off.
