Leading manufacturer of performance oils and lubricants for motorcycles becomes a sponsor and promotional partner of forthcoming film about motorcycle icon John Penton.
FULLERTON, CA (July 17, 2013) — When John Penton was looking for innovative, high-quality manufacturers for his “Hi-Point” line of premium off-road motorcycle accessories, he looked no further than Intercontinental Lubricants Corp., (ILC) in Brookfield, CT for his oil and lubricant products. ILC is the parent company of Spectro Oils of America, which is found in leading motorcycle dealerships and accessory retailers worldwide. Spectro Oils is supporting the new Penton film now in production as a sponsor/promotional partner when the film is released in the Spring of 2014.
Over 40 years ago John Penton discovered a unique synthetic lubricant product that Spectro had developed and began to market it under the “Hi-Point” brand that included apparel, parts, tires, etc. all developed for the off-road motorcycle racer and enthusiast. Mr. Penton knew that Spectro’s superior quality and performance was just what he was looking for to package as a Hi-Point product. Spectro Oils packaged various products as Hi-Point including synthetic blends for two and four stroke engines, two stroke injector, gear lube, fork oils, chain lube, and filter fluid.
“Spectro is proud to be part of this historical film for not only the motorcycle industry but for our own company as well,” said David Miller, President. “John Penton is an American motorcycle legend and icon who helped many other companies like ours, find success in the motorcycle industry,” added Miller.
Spectro Oils of America is not only contributing funds for the post-production process of the film, but more importantly will be actively promoting the forthcoming film to their dealer and consumer customers through distribution of film promotional materials in their packaging, advertisements, social media and more. The film’s producers feel that these types of programs and cooperation will insure the success of the film in many different motorcycle markets across the United States and abroad.
“We are so grateful that Spectro has stepped in to support this film and will be helping to make sure the motorcycle world knows about it,” said Todd Huffman, the film’s Producer at Pipeline Digital Media (PDM). “John Penton knew he found a quality product with Spectro Oils all those years ago and we now know we have a quality sponsor partner involved with the film.”
Over 80 interviews so far have been completed totaling dozens of hours of footage from the United States and Europe. More than 100 total will be included when the film is finished making this film perhaps the most motorcycle star-studded film in history when it’s released in the Spring of 2014.
