New oil analysis lab opens in Michigan

Posted on August 12, 2014

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — After years of working in the bulk lubricant industry, Jason Rainey has opened Apex Oil Lab, an oil analysis lab that offers the level of transparency, accuracy, speed and customer service that he has always wanted from a lab, company officials said.

“Think of us as your personal analyst. Our oil analysis laboratory is committed to going beyond testing oil and sending a report,” Rainey said. “We see ourselves as an extension of the customer’s maintenance team, collaborating toward greater performance, longevity and savings for them.”

Apex Oil Lab offers lubricant testing to a wide variety of industrial and commercial customers nationwide. Industries include industrial, automotive, commercial vehicle, marine, landfill, off-highway, mining, power generation, agriculture and railway. The lab offers oil analysis for the following equipment types: compressors, engines, gear systems, hydraulics, transmissions and turbines.  

Armed with the latest in testing equipment, ASTM methodologies and precise attention to details, the lab offers accurate, reliable results, company officials said, as well as 24-hour and same-day turnaround on most tests. Expert analysis and clear recommendations accompany every test result, according to the company.

The highlight of the oil lab, company officials said, is the level of customer-driven service.

“Each customer is unique, and we have the agility to tailor our services to specific needs,” Rainey said. “Our mission is to be the best at finding the right solutions that will help customers maximize the effectiveness of their condition-based maintenance programs.”

For qualifying customers, such as lubricant distributors and equipment manufacturers, Apex Oil Lab offers a private label program. This program is designed to allow such companies to seamlessly enhance their product line.

“Through our private label program, qualifying companies can offer oil analysis as another valuable service to their own customers,” Rainey explains. “This is a way for them to add value and strengthen brand loyalty with minimal financial investment.”
