Linder Oil Company Honored as Wells County Chamber of Commerce's May Member of the Month

The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors awarded Linder Oil Company, a family-owned custom oil blender in Ossian, the title of May Member of the Month. Owners John and Angie Marshall were pleasantly surprised with the honor at their business location at 820 Industrial Parkway.

Founded in 1978 by Bob Marshall, Linder Oil began its journey in a modest building in downtown Fort Wayne, specializing in the blending of base oils with additives to create superior lubricants mainly distributed in drums and through bulk deliveries. Over the decades, Linder Oil has expanded its operations and facilities significantly, moving to its current location in Ossian in 2006 after a series of strategic moves aimed at accommodating growth and enhancing distribution capabilities.

Today, Linder Oil is recognized for its custom-made maintenance oils, primarily serving steel mills, rubber processing oil companies, and small manufacturing businesses across the Midwest. The company prides itself on its direct sales model and exceptional service, offering rapid delivery turnarounds that distinguish it from major competitors.

"We are incredibly honored to receive this recognition from the Wells County Chamber of Commerce," said John Marshall. "Our success is truly a team effort, and each of our 13 staff members plays a crucial role. We're not just selling products; we're providing solutions right here from our site, where everything is mixed and blended with precision."

Under the leadership of the Marshalls, Linder Oil has continued to thrive and expand, adding a 5,000 square foot extension to their production area and office space in 2016. The company is always on the lookout for opportunities to grow and is actively seeking new employees, emphasizing that no special skills are required as training is provided.
