AMSOIL Delays Canadian Price Increase Until July 1st

AMSOIL has refrained from adjusting Canadian prices for as long as possible, but action is being taken to offset the significant losses derived from increased raw-material costs and continued fluctuation in the exchange rate this year. The exchange rate between the Canadian and US dollars has been more volatile recently than at any time since 1929. All projections and expert advice predict some stability in the coming months. Barring any major fluctuations in the coming weeks AMSOIL expects the adjustment to be in the 9-10 percent range — with an average increase of 9.7 percent.

June 1st Canadian Price Increase

The Canadian dollar has demonstrated some stability at its current exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. While AMSOIL has refrained from adjusting Canadian prices for as long as possible, the significant change in the exchange rate combined with increased raw-material costs have forced AMSOIL to implement a price increase in Canada effective June 1.

The increase is expected to be in the 8-12 percent range. Every effort will be made to keep the price adjustment as low as possible.

New Products

Just two months into 2015 and three new products have been launched. In the first week of January the Signature Series 5W-50 (AMR) along with a new 4 stroke Dirt Bike Oil available in 3 different viscosities was announced.

In the latest product news, AMSOIL has now added a Signature Series 0W-40 (AZF) viscosity aimed at high-performing, high-horsepower engines. Ideal for Dodge, Chrysler & Nissan applications that call for a 0W-40, this new addition offers a premium lubricant to combat the stress and high heat associated with these modern muscle machines.

Stay tuned in the very near future for more product updates and announcements. AMSOIL has always delivered big ideas that spurred the synthetic lubricant industry to follow suit, and they have no intention of relinquishing the position of “The First in Synthetics”.

Signature Series 5W-50 (AMR)

This year at the 2014 SEMA Show the Mustang took centre stage as it celebrated its 50th birthday. In conjunction with this AMSOIL has added a new viscosity to its Signature Series line specifically formulated for high-horsepower Ford Mustang engines requiring the Ford WSS-M2C931-C performance specification.

AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-50 Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with a robust additive package, including top-quality detergents and dispersants to help prevent sludge deposits and keep engines clean. It withstands the stress of high horsepower and heat, resisting viscosity loss due to mechanical shear and maintaining protection in metal-to-metal contact regions for maximum engine life.

Like its Signature Series siblings, AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-50 excels in extreme temperatures. It resists thermal breakdown to maintain protection in high heat and it contains no wax, allowing it to remain fluid in the low temperatures for improved oil flow and protection at startup. Signature Series 5W-50 is designed for maximum efficiency. It exhibits an extremely low volatility rate to control oil consumption and emissions.

Canadian Price Adjustment March 1st, 2014

Despite AMSOILs best efforts to avoid adjusting pricing, continued substantial changes in the exchange rate between the U.S. and Canadian dollars has forced AMSOIL to implement a minimal Canadian price adjustment effective March 1. As a U.S. company that exports to Canada, AMSOIL is impacted greatly by fluctuations in the exchange rate. The Canadian dollar has decreased in value by more than 7 percent since the last Canadian price adjustment and it is forecasted to continue dropping in value. In order to offset the increased cost of doing business in Canada, AMSOIL must implement a price increase of 4-9 percent for all products. Prices will increase by an average of 7 percent.

AMSOIL will continue monitoring the exchange rate and, as the company has done in the past, adjust pricing up or down as conditions dictate.

Even with a price adjustment, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants remain the most cost-effective choice on the market, saving customers money through extended drain intervals, reduced wear and maintenance and maximum fuel efficiency.

AMSOIL No Longer Distributes NGK, TRICO, Mothers Products in Canada & USA

AMSOIL will no longer distribute NGK Spark Plugs, TRICO Wiper Blades and Mothers Wax-Cleaning products in Canada and the United States. Remaining stock is available at distribution centres while supplies last.

NGK, TRICO and Mothers are all trusted brands, we are truly sorry to offer this news. With increasing costs, shrinking margins and the fact that all of these products are available virtually everywhere, AMSOIL felt it was best to concentrate their distribution efforts in other areas.
