NLGI is a not-for-profit trade association, primarily composed of companies who manufacture and market all types of lubricating grease. Membership is by company rather than by individual. Associated with the manufacturers are companies who serve them with equipment, supplies, and services.
NLGI was incorporated in 1933 as the National Association of Lubricating Grease Manufacturers, Inc., for the purpose of writing a code concerning the NRA (National Recovery Act). In 1937, the name was changed to the National Lubricating Grease Institute. Its founders were J.R. Battenfeld, Battenfeld Grease & Oil Corporation; Guy Peters, Oil Craft Inc.; and W.H. Sauders, International Lubricant Corp. Another name change was made to NLGI in 2001.
