The American Petroleum Institute (API) recently announced that Lyden Oil, a three-location motor oil distributor headquartered in Walbridge, Ohio, has been licensed under API's Motor Oil Matters (MOM) program. API awarded the licenses after Lyden demonstrated the company's compliance with API's motor oil chain-of-custody standard.

"MOM makes it her mission to ensure consumers are receiving only the best quality motor oil in their vehicles and, in the end, much of this depends on the middle man – the distributor," said Kevin Ferrick, API's engine oil licensing and certification system manager. "The MOM certification confirms that Lyden has proven its ability to properly identify, label and deliver quality oils."

Lyden provides motor oil to a wide range of installers from lube centers and car dealers to heavy-duty lubricants customers, including construction, aggregate and fleet accounts. The company's distributor locations can be found in Lansing, Michigan, as well as Walbridge and Youngstown, Ohio.

Motor Oil Matters is a consumer education and protection program run by the American Petroleum Institute. API relies on MOM to espouse the benefits of API-quality motor oils and ensure consumers know the brand, viscosity grade and performance level of the motor oils installed in their cars and trucks.
