Year-long supply of lubricants donated to Central Carolina

College will use supplies for auto tech program


A Sumter lubricant distributor and a national lubricant manufacturer have partnered in making a gift of lubricants to the automotive technology program at Central Carolina Technical College.

Brewer-Hendley Oil Co. of Sumter and Mystik Lubricants provided the lubricants used in CCTC's Automotive Technology program for the 2017-18 academic year.

The gift was a collaboration between Brewer-Hendley, a local distributor of automotive and industrial lubricants, and Mystik, one of the nation's leading manufacturers of motor oils, gear oils, transmission fluids and greases.

"We are delighted to have an opportunity to supply the lubricants used in this outstanding automotive technology program. By providing premium lubricant to the CCTC students, we play a contributing role in the education of the newest generation of South Carolina's automotive technicians," Daly Ward, general manager for Brewer-Hendley's Sumter operation, said.

"We appreciate this combined effort between a local enterprise and its principal supplier. Mystik lubricants have an excellent reputation, and Brewer-Hendley has been a strong community partner. This donation allows us to expand our resources and continue to provide one of the best automotive technology programs in the state," David Moore, CCTC Automotive Technology program manager, said.

Brewer-Hendley Oil Co. of Sumter is one of the largest distributors of Mystik, Clarion and CITGO lubricants in South Carolina. Brewer-Hendley also maintains operations in Florence; Monroe and Goldsboro, North Carolina; and Lithonia, Georgia.
