About us

RS Clare was founded in Liverpool in 1748 at the start of the Industrial Revolution. We are the longest established company manufacturing lubricants in the United Kingdom. Despite our age our company is innovative, dynamic and constantly pursuing new ways to improve the services and products we offer.

Our Industrial Lubricants Division has built on our long experience in grease making by servicing niche markets for speciality products in Rail, Oil and Gas, Marine, Steel, and Automotive industries throughout the world. Our Private Label Lubricants Division continues to manufacture conventional and non-conventional lubricants under customers’ own brands.

We have prospered for more than 270 years by adapting our company, products and services to best satisfy the evolving needs of our customers. We have built an enviable reputation, based on our ability to align with the markets we serve, whether supporting major multinational oil companies or local users of speciality lubricants, service treatments or road markings.


More passengers, increased frequency and higher speeds. The strain on rail networks has never been greater, which means effective rail protection has never been more important. RS Clare understands the importance of innovative friction management solutions to support our customers as they face greater challenges to lessen the time their engineers spend on track, reduce maintenance costs to achieve long term savings and protect our environment.

Our EcoCurve range of curved rail lubricants, GaugeShield and TracShield application equipment and H20X top of rail friction modifier have been designed to reduce the amount of time engineers need to spend on track by prolonging rail life to support safer operations and lessen maintenance costs.

That’s why a growing number of rail operators rely on RS Clare for track lubricants that outlast and outperform. Already supplying the UK’s national network, London Underground, city trams and light railways, we’re making strong headway around the globe as the go-to specialists for the most advanced and cost-effective lubricants.
