Warrington based lubricant specialist Rock Oil has announced the appointment of Rob Sheldon as Rock Oil Motorsport Manager. Rob brings to the post a wealth of experience, having spent twenty two years at the sharp end of the motorcycle market, the last ten with another lubricant brand.

Rob will be responsible for assisting Rock's current national distributor network, as well as enhancing the company's profile in the motorcycle marketplace. Rob's dual role will also see him distributing in his own area of the country, where he will be trading as Rock Oil North.

"I look forward to embracing the challenges that lie ahead and I am eager to catch up with my friends and clients within the industry as well as on my new patch," explained Rob. "The facilities at Rock are second to none, being BS EN ISO 9001:2008 accredited. The company manufactures its own products to exacting standards and has done for well over 80 years. That quality clearly shows in the performance of the products judging by the success that Rock sponsored teams have enjoyed this year."

Charles Hewitt, managing director of Rock Oil added, "I am delighted to welcome Rob on board and look forward to having him work with us during these exciting times. Rock Oil is experiencing strong growth in all its markets and with Rob's experience in the motorcycle arena, I am sure that our profile will increase still further."
