30 Years: A Blast from the Past

It’s incredible to think that National Oil & Lube News has been growing steadily for 30 years. To celebrate this great achievement, we are dedicating our June issue to the past three decades, making it a special 30th anniversary commemorative issue. We are very thankful to have had so much support throughout the years from our service shops, advertisers and our thousands of readers. We would like to give you, the readers, the mic for a unique portion of the issue. If you would like to share a National Oil & Lube News story, an anecdote of success or just wish us happy birthday please email it to info@noln.net by Monday, May 2, and you might see it published in the issue.

When this publication began in 1986, it was a simple four-page newspaper. In 1998, it turned into an atlas sized publication and received its final face-lift in 2003, which reflects the current magazine style you see today. The logo itself has changed colors many times as well. It’s incredible to think that what began as a small piece of print is now internationally distributed. National Oil & Lube News today, maintains a sleek website, a blog and a social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. What began with a staff of three, has grown to nine full-time employees, one intern and contributing writers. In short, a much larger staff working around the clock to ensure our advertisers and shops are well represented in today’s ever-growing market.

The 80s were a revolutionary decade for the service industry and we are excited to make this an unforgettable issue. Remember, we want to hear from you, so pull out your memory bank and send us your thoughts. All entries should be emailed to info@noln.net by Monday, May 2. Don’t get left out!
