International Lubrication and Fuel Consultants, Inc. (I.L.F.C.) was founded in July of 1982 by George and Nancy Kitchen.  The major goals of the new company were to engage in a consulting business which would deal primarily with problems related to stand-by-power systems (S.P.S.). The first customers were telephone companies.

Starting ILFC was a natural extension of the Kitchens' 26 years of research at Bell Telephone Laboratories. The breakup of the Bell System into regional companies provided a good opportunity for them to service these new companies Stand-by Power System (SPS) needs.

Since our founding, ILFC has provided a scientific approach, both through on-site and laboratory practices, to identify problems associated with idle S.P.S. as well as more rapidly consumed fuel.

Throughout the years, ILFC, Inc. has developed products to improve the quality of fuels while maintaining equipment performance and reducing emissions.
