Who We Are


Gates Engineered Lubricants was founded by Jerry Gates in 2005 after spending more than 30 years in the industry. Jerry’s goal was to offer a full line of innovative specialty industrial fluids to businesses throughout the Houston area so they could see improved functionality from their equipment. His vision quickly became a reality. We have provided countless solutions to small and large manufacturers alike globally.

Our vision is to provide innovative and effective fluid solutions to those in need of products that will truly make a difference to their bottom line. We also take pride in providing safe and effective products. We understand machine operators, maintenance crews, and engineers come into contact with our products daily. To ensure safety and cleanliness, our products are formulated without chlorinated paraffin, traditional sulfurized fats, or animal fats and are low VOC and low HAP.

Our new state of the art facility was completed in 2015. We are constantly expanding our blending and raw material storage capabilities. This allows us to be highly responsive to customer needs, ensuring their needs are met from product development to delivery.

We encourage all of our clients to feel comfortable contacting us so they can learn how we are able to help them increase their profits. Furthermore, we are a proud member of the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA), which is an international trade association dedicated to representing the interests of the precision machined products industry.
