D-A Lubricant Unveils New Look For PennGrade, PennGrade1


Recommended Posts

D-A Lubricant Co. announced a new look for its PennGrade passenger-car motor oil and PennGrade1 high-performance oil – a first since D-A acquired the PennGrade name and logo in 2015.

The PennGrade lineup of motor oil for passenger cars is now color-coded to demonstrate the distinct levels of viscosities between the synthetic, full synthetic and premium full synthetic motor oils.

“The refresh on the labeling with the new color system makes it easier for the consumer to identify and differentiate between our good, better and best selection of motor oils for passenger cars,” said D-A Lubricant owner and CEO Mike Protogere. “Depending on the consumer’s price point and what features they are looking for, they can choose the right D-A oil for their car.”

Operated in the United States for 100 years, D-A Lubricant is the first company ever to specialize exclusively in the manufacturing and distribution of heavy-duty lubricants designed especially for heavy-duty equipment, according to D-A.

“D-A is already well-known and highly regarded in the heavy-duty and construction industries, but we want our customers to understand the full breadth of our lubricants and related products, which also includes those for passenger cars,” Protogere said. “We take great pride in our robust product portfolio – from industrial and agriculture to mining, power generation, on-highway transportation and automotive – and want our customers to be more aware of all we offer to fill their lubrication needs.”

Also part of the branding refresh is an updated label for the iconic PennGrade 1 high-performance oil. The redesign helps differentiate PennGrade1 from the rest of the PennGrade family and includes a nod to the Brad Penn logo.

“We want our customers loyal to the Brad Penn brand to know PennGrade 1 – The Original Green Oil – as well as the entire PennGrade 1 product line is the same product today as it has been for decades,” Protogere said. “It continues to use the unique Pennsylvania Grade base oil cut and the specially selected high-zinc, high-phosphorus formulation that’s been known and trusted by high-performance engine builders and vehicle owners for decades.”

Family-owned and operated, D-A Lubricant is located in a state-of-the-art facility in Lebanon, Indiana. The 250,000-square-foot building includes space for offices, blending, processing, packaging, a technical lab, rail loading and offloading and 14 dock doors.

D-A produces engine oils, transmission lubricants, greases, gear lubricants, hydraulic oils, antifreezes, specialty products and industrial grade lubricants.

“D-A has a long history of quality, both in our products and our service,” Protogere said. “We believe this label refresh will create opportunities for a bigger on-shelf presence and awareness of the D-A brand to more customers across the country.”

When I started my career as a technician, performance-related diagnostics were not that challenging when compared to today’s technology. Most symptoms could be isolated to a fuel or ignition-related problem with a simple road test. Diagnostic equipment was limited to some basic tools such as a timing light, rpm/dwell meter, compression gauge, vacuum gauge, volt/ohm meter, […]

Accordingly, the global brand NGK Spark Plug Co. LTD will also begin operating under the English tradename Niterra Co., Ltd on April 1.

      MEMA, the Vehicle Suppliers Association, presented its new brand and business structure at a virtual member town hall.  
      North America’s leading trade association for manufacturers of motor vehicle components will now operate under one umbrella organization with two groups: MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and MEMA Original Equipment Suppliers.
      Over the decades, MEMA’s influence expanded as the industry evolved, establishing four divisions: the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Associations (AASA), Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), Motor Equipment Remanufacturing Association (MERA) and Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA).
      The new structure will create a stronger, more unified organization that can better serve and represent constituents by convening all members under just two groups, MEMA leaders said.
      “Rapid changes are impacting our industry. It was the right time to rethink our strategy to better address member needs,” said Bill Long, MEMA president and CEO. “Our member companies have more in common today than ever before. We will provide more effective programming and agility to react to industry changes by streamlining the organizational structure.”
      Working with Gyro Creative, a Detroit branding agency, MEMA leadership went through a months-long review of its branding and value proposition, as well as member surveys and competitive analysis. The new look and color palette is modern, progressive, and bold.
      “No other organization can compare with MEMA’s longevity, respect, depth of knowledge, and commitment to the vehicle supplier industry,” said Long, who added that MEMA’s mission, vision and dedication to its members and the automotive and commercial vehicle industry have not changed.
      “Members will appreciate this structural simplification as it makes it easier for members to access the value MEMA provides today, and we believe it will create more value long-term,” said Megan Gardner, executive director, marketing and communications. “The new brand better represents our forward movement.”
      As part of its rebranding and realignment, MEMA also has announced a number of new leadership changes and appointments. The new MEMA Leadership structure is as follows:
      Bill Long, president and CEO, MEMA Ann Wilson, senior vice president, Government Affairs Paul McCarthy, president and CEO, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers John Chalifoux, chief sustainability officer and COO, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers Julie Fream, president and CEO, MEMA OE Suppliers Collin Shaw, chief commercial officer and COO, MEMA OE Suppliers In addition, a number of internal promotions and appointments have been announced at MEMA, including:
      Megan Gardner as executive director of Marketing and Communications Liz Goad as executive director of Events  Mike Jackson executive director of Strategy and Research Other developments include:
      The Center for Sustainability – a new platform for all members as they navigate the increasingly complex processes and requirements of a successful sustainability program. A resource for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion where staff and members can engage in meaningful dialogue and share best practices to develop safe and welcoming business environments. Greater access to member councils, programming, events and MEMA’s advocacy staff in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the new MEMA, visit
