Motorcycle chain oiler manufacturer Scottoiler is gearing up to celebrate its 30th anniversary 130 years ago Fraser Scott first presented his invention the Scottoiler, an automatic motorcycle chain oiler, to the public at the Motorcycle Live Show in Birmingham. Now, 30 years later, Scottoiler is an established brand in the motorcycle industry with global market penetration.
R&D Manager Stephen Hood says “The recession has hit the motorcycle market hard but we see signs of recovery. Our products help every motorcyclist to spend more time on the road and less time in the garage. A Scottoiler chain oiler system is still the best way to save hassle, time and money when it comes to motorcycle maintenance.”
In 1984 Fraser launched the system into a collapsing motorcycle market with limited success. But he did not give up on his idea and began selling the first units by mail order from his living room. Satisfied customers quickly spread the word about this ingenious chain maintenance invention, and, over time, dealers, wholesalers and manufacturers began stocking the product.
Scottoiler has since increased its product range and is exporting to over 40 countries worldwide. Europe, Australia and SE Asia are strong established markets and the company is focusing its attention on the North American market in 2015.
“2015 is a big year for us. We currently have exciting projects going on behind the scenes at Scottoiler which we hope will appeal to our loyal customers and hopefully attract many new ones.” said Fiona Scott Thomson, Managing Director of Scottoiler Ltd.
