Lubrizol opens additives plant in China

Lubrizol Corp. is opening an additives manufacturing facility in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China, the company’s latest investment in China.

Construction on the 400,000-square-meter (1.41-million-square-foot) site began in October 2010. The plant will offer select additive component manufacturing and additive package blending. In the coming years additional capabilities and capacity will be phased in to meet market demand, Lubrizol said.

"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," Lubrizol president and CEO James Hambrick said in a statement.

The site also includes a Zhuhai research, development and testing lab in support of Lubrizol's engine oils, driveline, industrial and fuel additive businesses and is part of the company's global technical network of labs and experts. The lab will support field testing in local vehicles under local conditions in China, generating performance data in support of Lubrizol customers.
