About Us

Warren Distribution

Warren Distribution was founded in 1922 as Warren Oil Company by James Schlott, the grandfather of Robert N. Schlott, the current Chairman / CEO. The business began by supplying lubricating oils and related products to the agricultural business in the surrounding area.

The products sold by the company fall into three categories: private label and house branded lubricants and chemicals, accessories, and national brand chemicals and car care products.  Warren's customers for the private label lubricants and chemicals include major oil companies, farm store chains, mass merchandisers, auto parts retailers, and convenience store chains. Customers for lubricant related products and our distributed merchandise include distributors, grocery and drug chains, candy & tobacco distributors, oil distributors, and automotive manufacturers.

Warren Distribution is a Nebraska Corporation with its corporate offices in Omaha, Nebraska. Our manufacturing and distribution facilities are located in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Glen Dale, West Virginia, and Guntersville, Alabama. Warren employs approximately 600 people. We are ISO 9001:2008 registered and are committed to the continuous improvement of our products and processes.

Our Council Bluffs manufacturing facility, Warren Performance Products, includes more than 240,000 square feet along the Missouri River, just north of Interstate 80. Operations include the manufacture of plastic bottles (from 8 fluid ounces to 2.5 gallon) and the filling of such with lubricants and chemicals, as well as packaging in 5-gallon pails, drums, totes, and bulk transport loading. Much of the product made at the plant is packaged for private label marketers but a significant portion is packaged under Warren's house brands including MAG 1, Accel, and Polar.

The company's distribution center is located just east of the manufacturing facility and includes more than 235,000 square feet. Much of the product manufactured by Warren flows through the distribution center as do many products made by other nationally recognized companies.

Our Guntersville, Alabama manufacturing and distribution facility, known as Warren Southeast or WSE, focuses mainly on the production of private label brands along with bottle production. Manufacturing began at this plant in November 2002. 

Warren Northeast or WNE, located in Glen Dale, West Virginia, started production in 2007 and has capabilities very similar to those at Warren Performance Products, with bottle production and blending and packaging of both private label and house branded lubricants, all housed in a 340,000 square foot facility in Glen Dale, West Virginia on the Ohio River.

Centrally located in the middle of the United States.
