RSC Bio Solutions Mid-Year Review Blog Post By Mike Guggenheimer, CEO, RSC Bio Solutions

July 31, 2017

With a new global marine distribution partnership underway, expanded product offerings, multiple new OEM approvals and team expansion, 2017 has proven to be an exciting year for RSC Bio Solutions.

Drew Marine Global Distribution Partnership

In June at Nor-Shipping annual conference in Oslo, Norway, we announced our new global distribution partnership with Drew Marine.

This new strategic alliance creates enhanced global availability for our high performance environmental lubricant offerings and will strengthen both companies’ position in the industry and our mutual commitment to global service and product leadership. We believe Drew’s comprehensive supply chain network, deep industry expertise and strong technical support will deliver significant value to our growing customer base in the marine industry. This partnership addresses the growing need for high performing and compliant lubricants in far ranging port locations.  Our customers expect us to navigate an increasingly complex regulatory and technical environment and Drew Marine is an ideal partner to extend our ability to offer this service.

2 WREP Grease Launch

Staying true to our mission to provide sustainable solutions for unforgiving environments, we launched RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP, a water resistant, extreme pressure biodegradable grease.

RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP is specially designed for high performance in a variety of marine and industrial equipment applications where exposure of the lubricant to water and environmental factors is a cause for concern. It offers multiple benefits, including:

  • outstanding water spray-off performance
  • extreme pressure and anti-wear performance
  • broad operating temperature range
  • resistance to water washout
  • ferrous and yellow metal corrosion protection
  • oxidative stability
  • good pumpability
  • good shear stability
  • sealing properties to keep out water and debris

New OEM Approvals

Whenever we sign a new partnership agreement or launch a new product, we always do so with our customers’ needs in mind. We are committed to providing not only the best products for the environment and your bottom line, but also the products that guarantee the best performance of your equipment. And there is no bigger affirmation of this commitment than receiving approvals from major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). In the first half of 2017, we added multiple OEM approvals to our already extensive list of companies (see marine and land approvals), allowing us to serve an even wider array of customers and applications.

Team Expansion

In addition to growing our global partnerships, we are excited to announce two new members of the team who will continue to expand our global footprint. Please join me in welcoming Kim Fondren and Patrick Kostelijk to RSC Bio Solutions. Kim, based in Houston, will focus on Business Development primarily for the Offshore Oil & Gas segment. Patrick will focus on Business Development for the European Union and is based in The Netherlands.

In an industry that is constantly changing, evolving and is driven by innovation and supply chain collaboration, I am excited to see our company continue to grow and am proud of the RSC Bio Solutions team for staying on top of market trends and needs.
