LSI Celebrates 20 Years

LSI is turning 20 this year, and celebrating two decades of being "powered by science."

Lubrication Specialties Inc. (LSI) is announcing its 20th anniversary. Founded in 1997 by Chris Gabrelcik, LSI began as an equipment chemical solutions provider for commercial and industrial accounts for major manufacturers. The company’s initial focus was on keeping equipment running in top shape by developing proprietary chemical and lubrication formulations.

This “Powered by Science” philosophy permeates the company’s business philosophy and is the basis for the company’s recent growth into the automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket.

In 2004 LSI developed its first automotive and heavy-duty transportation product. Hot Shot Secret Stiction Eliminator is an oil additive for gas and diesel-powered vehicles that removes close to 100% “stiction,” i.e. the gummy, sticky residue of caked-on oil varnish that often builds up on injectors, bearings, turbos and engine components. Stiction Eliminator is formulated to clean and lubricate the entire oil system from the turbo, bearings, injectors, rings and oil pump.

In 2014, LSI purchased Frantz Filters, a company that provides superior filtering systems for diesel and gas heavy-duty trucks and also added a third division, Fluid Recovery that provides responsibly produced, premium antifreeze/coolant products through a patented refinement process.

Today, LSI offers a full line of oil and fuel additives for gas and diesel engines under the brand “Hot Shot’s Secret,” offering a line of more than 30 products online and at retailers throughout the U.S.
