Our Story

Despite the development of well-known multi-purpose lubricant brands in the 1960’s, it wasn’t until 1985 when Action Can launched AC-90 on to the market, that the category growth accelerated its expansion. In the three decades since, Action Can has established itself as one of the UK’s leading manufactures of professional grade maintenance chemicals.

AC-90: the flagship multi-purpose lubricant from Action Can has set the standard for the ‘all-in-one’ product category: effectively lubricating, penetrating, displacing moisture, protecting against corrosion and cleaning: “In The Right Hands It’s A Power Tool!”

Sold exclusively through wholesale and distributor channels, the Action Can range continues to grow from a handful of core products to an everexpanding industrial/professional product range.

Now part of the CRC Industries group of companies, Action Can provides a comprehensive range of first-class products backed up by in-house technical facilities, customer service, with dedicated sales and marketing teams. Our ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditations demonstrate our commitment to research, development and manufacturing quality standards: “Right First Time Results, Every Time.”

OUR PRODUCTS

Developed to meet the exacting requirements of professional engineers and manufactured in our UK and European facilities, the Action Can product range offers product choice, proven performance and full in-house quality control. Our products hold many approvals, and we aim to meet professional grade standards every time. “Tested, Trusted and Approved.”

OUR FACTORY

Our manufacturing site is located in Somerset, England and is partnered with the European facility to provide a combined production capacity of over 20,000,000 cans per year. Testing all raw materials upon arrival for specification compliance before blending, again once the bulk batch(s) are ready for filling, and once again after filling, ensures our dedication to specification compliance and consistency, offering reliability and peace of mind that every can of Action Can works just as well as the last.
