The Mr McKenic® range of products began with its flagship product, the 9-in-1 Technology Oil, in 1999. The 9-in-1 Technology Oil was specially formulated for the growing marine and industrial sectors in Singapore: to meet their increasing demands for a safer, easy-to-use, non-flammable aerosol, penetrating lubricant with corrosion inhibiting action. The 9-in-1 Technology Oil gained a wide following of users who found it to out-perform all other competing aerosol lubricants in terms of effectiveness, value and most importantly, fire-safety. Building upon this strong initial success, the Mr McKenic® brand was extended to other products for use both in industry and at home – with special focus on applications in maintenance and cleaning.
Today, the Mr McKenic® brand encompasses a wide-range of popular products that clean, wash, disinfect, degrease, lubricate, polish and protect both at the workplace and at home. Mr McKenic® product formulations are created through extensive in-house research and development that combine our technical expertise with a deep understanding of our customers’ requirements. To ensure the highest quality standards for our products, these unique formulations are proudly manufactured in our own production facility by our skilled production personnel.
The Mr McKenic® brand name has since travelled from Singapore to the rest of the world. With a rapidly expanding global distribution network, Mr McKenic® can now be found in the UK, Europe, USA, China, S.E. Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Mr McKenic® has also received several international accolades for its products, having been accorded awards such as the 16th International Europe Award for Quality (Paris, France) and the 27th International Award for Best Trade Name (Frankfurt, Germany).
In December 2009, Vance Chemicals Pte. Ltd., a member of the Vance Group of Companies, acquired the Mr McKenic® brand and its associated R&D and manufacturing facilities from Isochem International Pte. Ltd.
