Kernow Oils - Lubricant Solutions

Our History

Founded by David Adkins in 1989, Kernow Oils has grown alongside our customers while incorporating ever increasing technology behind today’s lubricants where ‘technical support and quality assurance’ is now more important than ever.


In 2003 David’s eldest son Mark Adkins BEng (Hons) returned to Cornwall to help David run the business as it continued to grow.


With an engineering background specialising in Tribology, Master Scheduling and the quality management systems of a Global, subsea design, engineering and manufacturing company, Mark created the infrastructure for what Kernow Oils has become today.


Kernow Oils achieved ISO accreditation Status for its quality management systems in 2004 and continues to achieve this certification year on year.


With the ongoing support of family and our highly skilled, knowledgeable technical sales and sales support teams, Kernow Oils continues to go from strength to strength.

  • Commitment to Quality
  • Independence
  • Flexibility
  • Continual improvement of our product range and services for our customers
