CLEVELAND, US: The Lubrizol Corporation has opened a world-class additives manufacturing facility in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. The plant is the latest addition to Lubrizol’s long-term investment and growing presence in China. The investment in the plant was made in 2010 to upgrade operations and increase global capacity in additives. The site includes a research, development and testing lab in support of Lubrizol’s engine oils, driveline, industrial and fuel additive businesses.

“The business climate in Asia is an exciting one, particularly when it comes to the rapidly expanding automotive industry, where the demand for advanced fuels and lubricants has never been stronger. Our investment in the Zhuhai facility is further confirmation of our ongoing commitment to the region, to the industry and to our customers’ success. This is truly an opportunity to help our customers meet their growth plans while offering in-country technical support and improved security of global supply. It is also a testament to our commitment to the community in which our employees live and work,” said James L Hambrick, Chairman, President and CEO, Lubrizol.
