JAX, based in Menomonee Falls, WI USA, is a manufacturer and supplier of the highest quality industrial, synthetic and food-grade lubricants for machinery and processes. With over 55 years experience, JAX has earned its reputation as a leader in lubrication technology.
A Wholly-Owned Company
Founded in 1955, JAX is a wholly-owned company that has become a global player in the formulation and manufacturing of high technology synthetic and food-grade lubricants for industry. As an independent company, JAX has the autonomy to compound lubricants without compromising superior performance for price. From formulating new lubricants for unique processes, to rushing emergency testing through their independent RPM Laboratory, it’s these little, and not so little, things that separate JAX from other lubricant companies. To achieve this, JAX employs only dedicated, experienced people to make the difference in their customer’s business. JAX is an ISO 9001-2008 certified company.
JAX lubricants are compounded with the industry’s finest raw materials and additive chemistries. Formulation decisions are based on performance and quality which ultimately lead to substantial, verifiable cost savings in terms of extended machine life, reduced downtime, lubricant conservation and increased production.
