Ingevity Celebrates ILMA’s 70th Anniversary
Oct 30, 2018
What do you get when you combine croquet, the Rat Pack, a beautiful desert resort and hundreds of lubricant industry key decision makers? Easy: The Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association’s (ILMA) Annual Meeting. Earlier this month, Ingevity’s Lubricants team celebrated the ILMA’s 70th anniversary in Palm Desert, California. ILMA’s Annual Meeting, held each October, is four days of committee and technical sessions, with networking opportunities and social/sporting events. We joined hundreds of lubricant professionals to learn about industry updates and engage with key decision makers.
In addition to attending the various meetings and participating in networking events, we also hosted a customer appreciation happy hour to connect with other industry professionals in a more intimate environment.
As always, we enjoyed catching up with industry colleagues, meeting new people and spreading the word about Ingevity’s expansive product portfolio.
Since 1948, ILMA has been the voice of member companies that produce more than a quarter of the nation’s automotive lubricants and three quarters of its metalworking fluids for customers who use their products to improve performance and increase efficiency. Many of ILMA’s member companies, like Ingevity, are key suppliers of the independent lubricant manufacturing industry or marketing member companies which market and manufacture lubricants, own and operate a lubricant storage facility and maintain a finished product inventory. ILMA is the principal voice for the industry before Congress, federal regulatory agencies and other industry groups.
