Motor Oil Matters Certified Oil Distributor
Rowleys Wholesale is proud to announce we are a Motor Oil Matters Certified Oil Distributor. Because we purchase quality oils from reputable manufacturers and ensure it is labeled, delivered and represented exactly as it should be. Our reputation is everything and we protect it fiercely.
API has made it well known that an alarming 1 in 5 bulk oils tested by API failed to meet API performance. Consumer distrust created by others who do the wrong thing also impacts you and our industry as a whole and is bad…but can be an opportunity for those whose reputation for quality is beyond question. MOM certification ensures we are the reputable distributor we say we are.
So what standards did we have to meet to become certified?
Before becoming licensed, our locations needed to demonstrate that they meet the new API chain-of-custody standard. This included an auditing process to ensure we qualified for MOM. API reviewed our application to make sure it met program requirements and will periodically review our products and processes to ensure continued performance.
Our applications included the following documentation:
- Orders for the latest delivery or deliveries received by the distributor location(s)
- Bills of Lading from the latest delivery or deliveries received by the distributor location(s)
- Delivery Documents from the latest delivery or deliveries received by the distributor location(s)
- Customer Order Confirmations for orders received
- Drop Tickets for orders delivered
- Customer Receipts for orders delivered
All licenses are awarded by location. Rowleys Wholesale has completed the process for our Bay City and Southgate Michigan offices, and also our Medina Ohio location as well. An on-site sample audit is required for each location to be licensed. An API auditor performed an onsite inspection at both locations.
Rest assured Rowleys Wholesale is committed to being a good steward of the manufacturers’ brand and products giving peace of mind to our customers knowing we have delivered a quality product.
