About Company

Afton Chemical Corporation is part of the NewMarket Corporation (NYSE: NEU) family of companies, and has been working in the fuel and lubricant additives marketplace for over 90 years.  Our range of technology solutions includes Driveline, Engine Oils, Performance and Refinery Fuels, and Industrial additives.  We use our formulation, engineering and marketing expertise to help our customers develop and market fuels and lubricants that reduce emissions, improve fuel economy, extend equipment life, improve operator satisfaction and lower the total cost of vehicle and equipment operation.  We are focused on developing our technology and meeting specifications, but also on providing the differentiation our customers need to stand out.

Driven by our Passion for Solutions

 The values upon which Afton is founded form our Passion for Solutions® philosophy, and are symbolized by three corners of our triangle. The triangle represents the way we do business. It emphasizes that it is the inspiring and enthusiastic people which – when combined with expert and innovative chemistry – deliver effective solutions for our customers, helping them achieve their business goals.  We support our global operations through regional headquarters located in Asia Pacific, EMEAI, Latin America and North America.


  • As a company, Afton is continually looking to the future.  But the values that we hold closely – and which contribute greatly to our success – are as simple and timeless as they are important.  And while some companies train their people to work this way, we simply hire people who already live their lives by these values. 
  • Achieving our vision depends entirely on the ability of Aftons people to contribute individually and collectively, to develop new skills, to work in an environment that fosters pride and to share in the contributions they make toward the success of the company. This success requires a culture that makes it possible for Aftons people to achieve full potential. Such a culture is based on mutual trust and respect. 
  • Personal and corporate integrity are the foundations for all we do. Integrity is a cherished possession we want never to lose. 
  • Quality means delivering productsto our customers that perform as promised and it means integrating our product integrity efforts into our development and commercialization processes by linking customer product performance expectations to quality characteristics. We must continually improve our processes and systems so we reliably deliver products our customers want and value now and in the future. 
  • To be at the top of customers lists, we must become their partners. This means we must share their business goals, champion their interests and link our resources to theirs in anticipation of their future needs. We need and will encourage the partnership of our suppliers in support of our customers needs and goals as well. 
  • It is Aftons goal to provide workplaces for employees that are safe, healthy and environmentally sound. Likewise, our presence in communities will not adversely affect the safety, health or environment of our neighbors. Finally, we will participate in ongoing activities, like Responsible Care®, that improve the health, safety and environment of the world. 
  • We intend to be good citizens wherever we have a presence throughout the world. Good citizens do more than simply comply with laws; they support causes that help to improve the community. We will support such causes as a corporation and encourage Aftons people to take active roles in answering community needs.
  • To realize this vision, Afton must be an economically viable and profitable organization. As we operate according to our vision and values, Afton will enjoy long-term growth with continually improving performance.
