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.
