Know How

Our experience and passion mean we are committed to providing our customers with a deeper understanding of Lanolin and its derivatives. In line with the fact that ImperialOel has been operating for over 100 years, many of our customers have been loyal to us for decades. Indeed, it is our direct and personal approach with clients that enables us to stay abreast of the latest industry research and global market movements.

Our strongly integrated supply chain starts with wool grease before reaching the lanolin stage, and is then processed into our range of byproducts suitable for technical applications to the highest pharmaceutical quality.

Building on our extensive business heritage, we are committed to offering a more specialised and flexible service that gives the ultimate in customer satisfaction.

Services

We are a customer-oriented business with attention to detail that ensures dependable door-to-door deliveries to our customers all over the world.

The company’s ethos revolves around Hanseactic business codes, established by medieval Germanic trade guilds to ensure fair, reliable and trustworthy practices – principles that still hold strong in German businesses to this day. We also pride ourselves on providing a personal touch, guaranteeing that our customers receive one-on-one customer support, providing on-point solutions that can be customised to specific needs.

Our service also emphasises a superior price-to-quality ratio, providing a portfolio of highly effective and reliable products made to the most discerning German manufacturing standards, backed by the best value for money. Indeed, it is our commitment to provide complete traceability throughout the supply chain for lanolin, bringing about transparency for important parameters such as water-absorption capacity and pesticide residue. Ultimately this means we are able to offer important reassurance on the crucial issue of animal welfare, while also clearly demonstrating that we never compromise on our pledge to produce to the very highest standards of quality.

We look forward to your call
