British Manufacturers of Quality Lubricants & Paints Since 1921

What We Do

Witham Oil and Paint Ltd is a privately owned, family run business with its Head Office and Lubricant manufacturing based in Lincoln. We also have trade depots in Lowestoft and Soham. The business is today collectively known as the Witham Group and is now one of the UK’s leading independent manufacturers and suppliers of a whole range of commercial and industrial lubricants and paints.

We started off making cycle oil and candle wax and the company grew with machinery innovations at the time, to make lubricants for factories and agricultural machinery and transport in the Lincolnshire and East Anglian areas. We are extremely proud to now be celebrating over 100 years of business and over the past century have grown a rich heritage and strong reputation built on quality, looking after our people, our customers and the environment throughout the UK.
