Women in Manufacturing – Vickers Oils celebrates International Womens Day

To celebrate Women in Manufacturing and International Women’s Day 2024, Vickers Oils decided to create a piece highlighting the women in their team, the roles they play at Vickers Oils and what they enjoy doing outside of work.

Mary Randall Vickers was the first woman entrepreneur in the Vickers family, having been left a widow running a business whilst raising 8 children. In 1819, Mary Vickers & Son was established, one of the few businesses headed by a woman. This was hugely unheard of for a woman living in that era. Benjamin Randall Vickers was then inspired by his mother Mary to found Vickers Oils, the business we know and love today. Without Mary’s perseverance, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

We believe that as a business rooted in deep history and the inspiring story of Mary and her entrepreneurial spirit, women in our business should be celebrated.

We are proud that 50% of our R&D, QC and Technical teams consist of women with a woman being in every department making it an even split throughout the company, all of whom provide valuable contributions to our business.
