AGS Company (American Grease Stick Company), located in Muskegon, MI, has been in business and family-owned since 1931. The company was originally founded on the manufacturing and sales of lubricating grease sticks to the automotive industry. AGS Company then spent many decades expanding its role as a supplier of specialty lubricants to the automotive aftermarket by producing and distributing well known brand names such as: Lock-Ease®, Ru-Glyde®, and Sil-Glyde®. These products can still be found in professional and DIY garages to this day and all are still produced and packaged in Muskegon, MI.
Over the years, many products categories have been added to the AGS catalog, such as: brake lines, fittings, oil drain plugs, specialty tools, & repair kits.
In the 1990’s, seeing an opportunity to service an underperforming area of the aftermarket, AGS began manufacturing and distributing pre-fabricated steel brake lines. Through a unique, economical, and high-quality manufacturing process, AGS was able to provide the aftermarket with superior product, high fill rates, and excellent customer service. Over the next two decades, the company was able to dominate the market for steel brake, fuel, and transmission lines. AGS maintains a 90% market share with a customer base that includes all of the major automotive retailers, warehouse/distributors, and groups
In the 2000’s, AGS has built upon its brake line business by creating its two most well known brand names – Poly-Armour®and NiCopp®. These premium products now dominate the automotive aftermarket brake line replacement category. To this day, 100% of pre-fabricated brake, fuel, and transmission lines are manufactured in Muskegon, MI in the same facility that AGS has occupied since the 1950’s. The same facility also still manufactures the product the company was named after – the grease stick – along with many of the companies other specialty lubricants. About 50% of the lubricant category is still produced and/or packaged in Muskegon, MI.
The last 10+ years has seen AGS develop other industry leading products and programs - oil drain plugs, automotive fittings, flaring tools, specialty fastening tools, A/C line repair kits, nylon fuel line repair kits, transmission line repair kits, power steering line repair kits, etc… and with the company motto ‘Always Innovating’ you can be assured there will be more to come!
