About Our Company


 
Oil Filter Service Co. was established in 1946 serving the logging, construction, marine, and industrial business. During the following 70 years of business we still supply those same products and services but we have diversified our inventory to cover our customers needs. Maintaining our presence as the Northwest industrial filtration and hose specialists we have also become the premier distributor for high performance hose, fittings, adapters and filtration.
