The company

For more than 60 years HOLIFA Fröhling GmbH & Co. KG has been a leading supplying partner for the metal forming industry specialized in the development, the production and the distribution of high quality metal forming lubricants for the sheet metal and the wire industry. The knowledge and experience gained in recent years in the field of industrial metal forming processes and tribology accompanied by the latest research results is used by our sales and service employees to develop customer orientated tailor-made lubricant concepts.

Beside this wide and professional consulting, our service includes assistance concerning environment protection, disposal and logistical issues. Our philosophy is essential for our policy and at the same time guidance for all activities of our employees including the executive board. The ideas of service, product quality, and environment protection form the center of our philosophy.


The consumer needs and demands of our customers are always in the main focus of our activities. Besides a large product portfolio of high quality standard lubricants, we are specialized on the development of customized lubricant concepts and on individual problem solutions. Therefore, our employees are familiar with the permanent search for new and innovative lubricant systems. Our aim is to provide best product quality in short delivery times accompanied by capable technical service.

Product quality

To our customers we guarantee a constant high level of quality of all our products. Integral part of this policy is the consistent application of the quality management system DIN EN ISO 9001, which includes intensive raw material control and final product analysis procedures.

Environment protection 

It has always been very important for us to develop lubricants which are environmentally friendly basing on raw materials without health risks. Furthermore, we have integrated several environment protection measures into our quality management system, which are from our point of view compulsory for a modern and environmentally friendly production of metal forming lubricants.
