Klotz Synthetic Lubricants, Sri Performance Partner for Sales and Distribution Agreement

Performance Parts Leader to Sell and Distribute Iconic Lubrication Brand

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (January 31, 2023) – Klotz Synthetic Lubricants and SRI Performance have partnered to bring the iconic lubricant brand to market as part of SRI’s robust performance parts portfolio beginning January 2023.

SRI Performance will carry over two dozen products from the Klotz catalog at both its Mooresville (N.C.) and Indianapolis locations to service professional racers, engine builders and performance enthusiasts.

Beginning with the New Year, SRI performance began its roll out of Klotz’s most popular products and part numbers to service a host of applications including automotive, powersports, marine, ATV/UTV, karting, V-Twin, and snow.

“SRI Performance and Klotz are extremely excited to be working closely together moving forward,” said Kevin Storms, General Manager, SRI Performance. “SRI has had a long-standing successful partnership with Bob Gorman and his Cometic Gasket Company. When the principals of Cometic acquired Klotz, the partnership became a natural extension of our already existing relationship. We feel extremely confident that relationship will carry over to the Klotz brand, which is already showing promising potential in our well-established lubricant line.”

Established in 1959, Klotz Synthetic Lubricants was founded to service a niche karting market in desperate need of a lubricant to mix with fuel and keep the racing machines running cool while also offering performance advantages.

In that same spirit, Klotz has spent the last 60-plus years formulating lubricants, fuels, fuel stabilizers, octane boosters, aerosols, and cleaners to service the needs of racers, performance enthusiasts and end-users who demand superior products for their cars, boats, motorcycles, karts, and RC machines.

As a former racer and avid karting enthusiast, Klotz Chairman Emeritus John C. Klotz Jr. is passionate about performance. To honor Mr. Klotz and his legacy, Klotz strives to offer the most advanced and trustworthy synthetic lubricants available, spanning the spectrum from serious racers all the way to invested performance enthusiasts. SRI Performance is equally committed to that same mission, creating a focused synergy between the two organizations.

“Klotz is thrilled to partner with SRI Performance as we continue to re-energize our brand and develop new products,” said Brad Kruckenberg, President, Klotz Synthetic Lubricants. “SRI is a market leader and the go-to retailer for hardcore racers and performance enthusiasts so we’re grateful to Greg Fornelli and his entire team for their hard work and partnership.”
