A Commitment to Excellence
As a jet fighter squadron commander Lieutenant Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants
in action. These oils are used exclusively 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 benefits would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Amatuzio began conducting serious
research in 1963. By 1966 he had formulated a synthetic motor oil and put it to use in vehicles in northern Minnesota. Throughout
the late ’60s Amatuzio continued his research and development and sold commercially available synthetic oils under a variety of
names. In 1970 he incorporated his own name into a commercially sold product called AMMOIL. In 1971 this product name was
changed to AMZOIL and it continued to be sold commercially. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMZOIL became the first
synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute criteria. The new lubricant performed like no other before it.
When the first can appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have
expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines
