Valvoline Inc. has completed its previously announced acquisition of the business assets of Oil Changers Inc., which adds 31 franchised quick lubes in Ontario. Valvoline’s quick lube network now has roughly 1,270 company-owned and franchised locations across North America — over 100 of which are in Canada.
Management plans to rebrand the Oil Changers shops to the Great Canadian Oil Change banner over time.
“The acquisition of Great Canadian Oil Change in July gave us a solid foundation to expand our footprint outside of the U.S.,” said Valvoline CEO Sam Mitchell. “Oil Changers is an exceptionally well-run operation, with a reputation for excellent customer service in Ontario. We look forward to working with Oil Changers’ franchisees to grow their business, add more locations, and expand the scale and presence of Valvoline’s Great Canadian Oil Change brand in Canada.”
