WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1957

Varouh Oil was founded in 1957 by George Varouh. George a Cretan immigrant came to the United States and started as a laborer for RW Beckett converting coal furnaces into industrial oil burners around Northern Ohio. He was also making castings for airplanes during the war. Through working with RW Beckett, George got to know people in the industrial lubricant business and was eventually asked to take over as a subsidiary wholesale gasoline supplier of Gulf in Lorain, Ohio.

Where We Started

In the beginning, Varouh was strictly a branded jobber, carrying petroleum products from lines such as Gulf, Chevron, and Citgo, but realized that customers needed quicker solutions to their industrial lubrication needs. Lead times on orders for industrial lubricants and commercial oils could be weeks to months, so Varouh explored the needs of tribology (blending products under private label) to ensure that our customers’ needs could be addressed in a timely, cost-effective manner. Varouh, with the help of base industrial oil suppliers and additive chemists (tribologists), was able to team up and begin blending, but with much lower overhead. This resulted in savings for our customers and quick results.

We’ve been in our current location in Elyria, Ohio since 1960, and are committed to serving Northern Ohio with petroleum products. We proudly serve the farmers who feed America, municipalities, manufacturing companies, and more!
