Canada’s Progressive Industrial Fluids is committed to helping things run more smoothly. Established in 2008 in Mississauga, Ontario, a short drive from Toronto, the company researches, develops and produces industrial lubricants and additives for various industries and applications.
Progressive’s products extend the working life of equipment and tools and enable them to operate more efficiently. However, the company is determined to do much more in the fight against climate change.
Right now, most industrial lubricants and additives are derived from crude oil, but Progressive believes the future lies in environmentally friendly and biodegradable materials. The company has been researching such solutions for over a decade, seeking to find more sustainable replacements for its existing portfolio.
“Since Progressive Industrial Fluids was founded, the world has been greatly impacted by climate change, which is driven in large part by our reliance on hydrocarbon-based products. This is an issue that Progressive does not take lightly,” said Darren Chambers, Chief Executive officer.
“We have worked rigorously to research and develop ways to effectively replicate existing products in a more ecological fashion and are continuously updating our product database with new, eco-friendly products to support future generations."
