OUR PHILOSOPHY

 Dad always taught me that Leahy-Wolf is in the solution business; finding answers to our customers’ needs. He and my grandfather were pioneers in fuels and lubricants. Dad went on to design one of the first environmentally safe form-oils in the business. Both his insight and innovations put Leahy-Wolf in a leadership role. I embrace this challenge. We will take Leahy-Wolf to the next customer-service plateau; providing customers products that are best-value performers.

BUSINESS APPROACH

PARTNERING FOR PERFORMANCE
Adhering to the “best value” approach, Leahy-Wolf partners with independent research labs and long-term suppliers to share technology, innovations, and to externally validate performance standards of products. Leahy-Wolf’s product lines are cost-effective, high-performance solutions.

 

FLEXIBILITY OF CHOICE
Providing “one-stop-shopping” doesn’t mean “one-solution-shopping.” Leahy-Wolf understands the range of issues and performance expectations of their diverse customers. Their lubricant solutions are as varied as their customers’ needs.

 

OUR CHALLENGE
Friction is the force that resists two contacting properties. It generates heat, wear, and wastes energy. Friction consumes one-third of all energy produced.

HISTORY

 

In early 1946, James Leahy and Herbert Wolf joined forces to supply fuel to homes and businesses throughout the Chicago-land area. Foreseeing the future, they specialized in petroleum products.

 

Soon, they were innovating lubricants for the volatile road construction business. Their combined knowledge of fuels, machinery, extreme climate conditions, and relentless productivity requirements established the Leahy-Wolf team as leading innovators in the lubricant world.

 

With an industrial chemistry degree, Keanan Leahy grew up with first-hand knowledge of the lubricant business. Like his grandfather and father before him, Keanan’s goals are to provide customers the “best value” products and services available in the marketplace.
