Industry Global Leaders 

General Petroleum’s long-time partners Quaker Chemical and Houghton International have come together under one name, Quaker Houghton. Houghton International was founded in 1865 in Norristown, Pennsylvania and has continuously worked towards its mission to deliver innovative and sustainable fluid solutions. Quaker Chemical Corporation was founded shortly after in 1918 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania and has since grown with a global presence in 21 countries. Now as one company, our partnership with Quaker Houghton will continue to grow as we continue to do business with them.
