Providing Innovative Products for Oil, Gas, and Industrial Applications Since 1983.

Guardex Lubes was established in Calgary, Alberta in 1983 by Leonard Bridger and is managed by Greg Bridger.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide customized oil and gas lubricant solutions that maximize production, reduce costs, and are environmentally friendly

Our quality products are designed to reduce friction and maintain a superior lubricating barrier that keeps surfaces from wearing while in contact with each other. This prolongs the life cycle of contact parts and reduces the frequency of maintenance required - thus reducing down time. Down time is very costly to any water injection operation and our product offerings minimize that. The overall result of Guardex Lubes' superior lubrication is longer lasting equipment with minimum maintenance to give our customers lower operating costs.

Product Solutions for the Oil Patch with regard to Environmental Policy

Guardex Lubes is dedicated to helping oil and gas operators evaluate, stimulate, and increase well productivity. We do this by placing emphasis on one thing: results. This objective requires that our company's products are designed to reduce operating costs and overall downtime in a manner that protects human health and the environment.

  • We encourage and expect each employee to be environmentally responsible.
  • We make environmental considerations a priority throughout the process of developing new products.
  • We comply with or exceed all applicable laws and regulations. Where existing laws and regulations are not adequate, the company will adopt its own environmental quality standards.
  • We design and development products and operate in a manner that protects human health and minimizes the impact of the products on the environment.

In 1983, two Calgary entrepreneurs started what is now called, Guardex Lubes Inc., in a private garage. In 1995, they were joined by a brilliant technician that had worked for General Motors Racing team and had a vast knowledge of tribology (the science of lubrication). Many of the advanced products that we have today come from his store house of knowledge. The Company was called E.C.L. Energy Conserving Lubricants Ltd. (ECL). This was a time of testing and procuring of material and technical knowledge.

In 1987, Allwest acquired the assets and patents of Oberg Enterprises Ltd.'s Canadian operation. The name, Oberg Filter Canada Inc., was chosen to head the Filter Division.

In 1989, Allwest acquired the assets of E.C.L. In 1990, Guardex acquired Allwest. Guardex combines leading edge technology and environmentally friendly permanent fluid filters which have proven to reduce your cost of operation.
