Press release - July 18, 2019

On July 17 some details of various legal matters between AXEL Royal, LLC and the previous owners and some key employees of Royal Mfg Co LP. were published by an industry publication. As a normal practice AXEL does not and will not comment about details of ongoing legal issues, however we feel it is important to respond to certain elements of court filings.

AXEL has a history dating back more than 130 years, supplying high quality lubricating greases to some of the biggest companies in the world. Shortly after the acquisition we became aware of certain practices that were not aligned with AXEL standards and we immediately took action to discontinue any activities that would not meet our high expectations and values. The safety of our employees, the protection of our environment and the quality of our products are the foundation of our success, and we will not compromise these ideals.

As 2018 comes to a close, I wish to extend a special THANK YOU to…

All our CUSTOMERS, who we work hard to service in the best possible way and are privileged to serve. We set high standards and it is a true challenge, in times of growth, to get it 100% correct all the time. However, we thrive and learn from these challenges and the high demand in 2018 has made us stronger and more capable going into 2019. Thank you for providing these challenges and rest assured we will do our very best!

All our SUPPLIERS, who play an equally essential role in the success of our business by enabling us to deliver finished products to our customers. The vast majority of our suppliers do a great job for which you deserve our sincere appreciation. In some cases, improvements are required so that we can satisfy our customers. Rest assured, we will work together, communicate such requirements and call for actions when needed.

All AXEL EMPLOYEES, who have grown substantially in numbers during 2018 due to the acquisition of ROYAL Manufacturing LLC. Together, our energy and capabilities will ensure that, as an organization, we are better equipped than ever to serve the needs of our customers. Your continued contribution and commitment is, as always, greatly appreciated.

Right or Wrong?

Posted by Alexandra Länsberg on Feb 28, 2014 8:02:07 AM

Please be very careful in claiming you’re “right” because there are many different perspectives and angles to be considered. I have, for instance often been told that “Here in Australia, we drive on the right side of the road, the left”. So what’s right for you may be wrong (or left) for me.  This is the subject of Edward de Bono’s deliberation on “Water Logic” in contrast to what he calls stone logic. Logic is really simple mathematics, all about yes and no, but it has all to do with perception of course.  The spell check on my computer is a real source of irritation and it keeps proposing the most horrible alternatives, referring to something called “American English”.  Wasn’t it Winston Churchill who commented upon two nations separated by a common language?
