In December 2009, Vance Chemicals Pte. Ltd. acquired the Mr McKenicﾮ brand and its associated R&D and manufacturing facilities from Isochem International Pte. Ltd. The business was started in 1999 and has been selling a wide range of products worldwide under the Mr McKenicﾮ and Mrs McKenicﾮ brand names. Its flagship product, the 9-in-1 Technology Oil, was specially formulated to meet the increasing demand for a safer, easy-to-use, non-flammable aerosol, penetrating lubricant with corrosion inhibiting action. The 9-in-1 Technology Oil gained a wide following of users who found it to out-perform all other competing aerosol lubricants in terms of effectiveness, value and most importantly, fire-safety. Building upon this strong initial success, the Mr McKenicﾮ brand was extended to other products for use both in industry and at home ﾖ with special focus on applications in maintenance and cleaning.
