What We Do

The Witham Group is one of the largest independent lubricant manufacturers and paint suppliers in the UK. It is a privately owned, family run business with its head office and lubricant manufacturing site based in Lincoln and a distribution warehouse, trade shop and paint decorating centre based in Soham, Cambridgeshire.

We are very proud of our heritage and over the past 100+ years we have grown a strong reputation built on quality products, looking after our people, our customers and leading the lubricant industry with our environmental credentials.

We operate throughout the UK and abroad, supplying our products and services to a full range of industries including agriculture, road haulage, marine and off-highway plant industries, plus we also supply many other sectors such as manufacturing, heavy engineering, motorsport, green energy, country estates and horticultural businesses.

We are extremely proud to have been awarded the Royal Warrant in 1991, for the goods and services we supply to the Royal Estates. The Royal Warrant helps underline our company’s commitment to maintaining and building its reputation as producers of the finest quality lubricants and paints and suppliers of excellence.

A Royal Warrant has always been regarded as demonstrating a very high standard in personal service, quality, excellence and innovation. Companies can only reach that status through careful and efficient management.

Over the past 15 years or so, Witham Group has grown faster than its previous 85 year history. The business has diversified into new innovative products and sectors and worked hard to put the environment at the heart of what we do. We remain committed and focused on our customers old and new.

We now employ around 50 employees across the 2 sites in Lincoln and Soham and have a customer focused sales team throughout the Midlands, Yorkshire and East of England. Our team is our most valuable asset and key to our success. We are immensely proud with the incredible longevity of service we hold across the Group and believe that it is our people, at all levels throughout the company, who make the difference between average and exceptional performance.

Today we are proud to be preferred suppliers of award-winning oils, paints, greases and other essential products to a huge array of businesses throughout the UK and abroad. Using only the highest quality raw materials, we meet both the latest original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requirements and worldwide industry specifications for all standards.

Environmental Credentials - Ahead Of The Curve

In an industry where traditionally additives, chemicals and fossil-based products and energy are essential to the manufacturing process, we have challenged ourselves to ensure wherever possible the environment is at the heart of our activities. We are proud to have created a “greener culture” within our business.

This means not only offering the best performing environmental products and services, but also our unique carbon neutral method of manufacturing lubricants, slashing our energy use, reducing our waste, using high percentage recycled packaging, helping with oil storage solutions, and providing a growing range of award winning environmentally sensitive products. It also means, that the welfare of those affected by our activities, have all been improved and are constantly monitored.

As a reputable manufacturer and supplier, we are making a real difference to customer supply chains, by offering a unique package of sustainable credentials, which in turn helps our customers to reach their own sustainability goals.
