Some history :
Created in 1929, NYCO initially specialised in derivative products for the pharmaceutical industry and PVC stabilisers.
In 1957, NYCOtook an interest in ester-based aviation lubricants and received its first approval for turbine oil from the French Ministry of Defence. NYCO then extended its range of lubricants to comply with British and American specifications.
In the early seventies, NYCO developed lubricants for the Soviet aviation, thus strengthening its presence on the Eastern European markets. At the same time, NYCO expanded its synthetic esters and formulated lubricants activities for automotive and industrial applications.
