Lubrizol opens additives facility in Guangdong, China

Mary Page Bailey

The Lubrizol Corporation (Wickliffe, Ohio; www.lubrizol.com) has announced the opening of 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. It is also the cornerstone of Lubrizol's 10-year phased investment plan, launched in 2010, to upgrade operations and increase global capacity in additives. James L. Hambrick, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Lubrizol, was in Zhuhai for the opening.
 
Construction on the 400,000-square-meter site began in October 2010. The plant will offer select additive component manufacturing as well as additive package blending. Over the coming years, additional capabilities and capacity will be phased in to meet market demand. 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, thereby generating performance data in support of Lubrizol customers.
