2006 Amsoil U presentations:
AMSOIL quality-control measures are thorough and extensive. Other companies might tout their quality-control practices, but few approach the AMSOIL standard.
Dan Peterson, Vice President – Technical Development
When visitors tour AMSOIL headquarters in Superior, Wis., they frequently comment on the cleanliness of the facilities. Whether you walk around the offices, distribution center or the blending and packaging areas, everything is tidy and organized. That’s no accident, but the result of determined effort and an unwavering commitment to quality control.
Quality control is an exacting, step by- step process that ensures every AMSOIL product is consistently blended, consistently formulated, consistently packaged and consistently tested before a Dealer or customer makes a purchase. Many companies tout quality control, but few do it like AMSOIL. Everything AMSOIL does – from receiving raw materials and warehousing to packaging and shipping – is governed by clearly defined quality-control procedures. The first line of the AMSOIL Quality Policy states, “It is the policy of AMSOIL INC. to provide products with ‘exceptional performance’ that exceed customer expectations.” Doing so requires exceptional employee performance and exceptional work practices.
Going the extra mile benefits customers and Dealers alike; both can purchase, use and recommend AMSOIL products without hesitation, knowing that quality raw materials and quality procedures yield quality products.
AMSOIL operates an advanced blending operation with access to a wide range of raw materials handled by the 2.5 million gallons of storage tank capacity on site. You probably know that AMSOIL uses the best base stocks and additives available to formulate the best lubricants possible. But that’s just one of many quality control steps taken here. Did you know that every drum, tanker truck and railroad car of raw materials AMSOIL receives is tagged and held in quarantine until it can be tested in our laboratory? Only after the material is tested to verify it meets specifications can it be transferred into the tanks and production chain.
Lubricant blending is a meticulous activity achieved by employees following explicit work instructions and aided by ultramodern equipment. Our state-of-the-art simultaneous metered blending system (SMB) affords maximum control and efficiency over the blending process and ensures that each product receives precisely formulated amounts of base oils and additives required for optimum performance. The blending process also ensures that all fluids are carefully tested numerous times in the laboratory before being labeled as AMSOIL products. After final lab approval fluids enter the packaging stage, but the show must go on. Between runs, the lines are cleaned thoroughly with a squeegee-like device called a “pig” that makes two complete passes through the pipes to remove any residue leftover from the prior batch. This guarantees that the next fluid traveling the line has a clean environment and that cross contamination does not occur.
Every truckload of bottles that AMSOIL receives also must pass inspection, with random bottles being examined and weighed for consistency before entering production. And before lubricants are dispensed into their packages, they are filtered according to industry specifications using appropriate synthetic media for the respective product. Bottles are filled to defined weights and capped to a consistent torque. As bottles proceed through production, an inline scale identifies and removes any containers failing to meet specified weight requirements. They also pass a camera that inspects every bottle for crooked or loose caps. If an improperly capped bottle is discovered, the optical system sends a flashing signal notifying a line worker of the problem, who can then recap it and ensure a proper seal. Every bottle is also coded with several pieces of information, including date and time of production, which line it ran on and who was responsible for the line at that time. Such data not only provides transparency, it allows for back-referencing should a problem arise later. Even our labels go through a quality process, with all labels containing a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that guarantees their accuracy before they stamp a container.
We began this article talking about clean facilities. AMSOIL Production Manager Bill Archibald notes, “We keep the blending and production areas clean by instilling the importance of cleanliness in every employee.” Clean facilities are the result of continuous and ongoing effort. If a spill occurs, it is cleaned immediately – not later, not at the end of the day, but now.
These are just a few examples of our multi-faceted approach to quality control. Going the extra mile benefits customers and Dealers alike; both can purchase, use and recommend AMSOIL products without hesitation, knowing that quality raw materials and quality procedures yield quality products.

I just read on recommendation:
John Maxwell's original Best Seller "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership " - A must read.
Winter sales suggestion:
See the October 2004 Service line available for download in the dealer zone (premium zone) regarding AMSOIL ATF performance at -40 degrees compared to DEXRON, Mercon and conventional transmission fluids. I consider this one of the most useful pieces of knowledge. (DEXRON at below freezing temperatures has a maximum Brookfield Viscosity reading of 20,000 where as AMSOIL exceeds this standard with a Brookfield Viscosity of 7,454 cP! This ensures the maximum transmission efficiency and power even in the coldest winters.
I made these for posting on public bulletin boards found in the local grocery stores, library and other venues. Holds 6 catalogs. Simple to make using a sheet protector (Avery Part # PV119XL-25 / 74171) You can buy at any office supply.
