About ILMA:

”A Thriving Lubricants Industry Means A Thriving American Economy!”

The Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association (ILMA) is the voice of member companies who produce automotive lubricants and metalworking fluids in North America. ILMA members specialized lubricants for everything from backhoes to bone screws. Their products keep planes in the air; cars on the road; and the machines in businesses, households and hospitals running efficiently. Without lubricants and metalworking fluids, North American businesses and manufacturing would grind to a halt.
