Al Amatuzio Inducted Into Hall of Fame
Lt. Col. Albert J. Amatuzio served as an award-winning jet fighter pilot for over 25 years, and had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in action. Synthetic oils are used exlusively in jet engines because of three extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components, an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes, and an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown.
Recognizing that these same lubricant characteristics would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Al Amatuzio formulated the first synthetic motor oil to meet API service requirements for automobile engines. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the first can of AMSOIL 10W-40 appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. In only two decades, AMSOIL synthetic oils have expanded the boundries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines.
AMSOIL INC. was founded on Al Amatuzio's desire for technical innovation, his commitment to higher quality, and his belief that consumers would respond to a superior product. The company has remained true to these ideals; its history is a checklist of revolutionary products that have withstood the test of time. As a pioneer coporation in the field of synthetic lubrication, AMSOIL sees its commitment to excellence as an historic responsibility, and A.J. Amatuzio's vision and enthusiasm continue to drive the company forward.
