FUCHS opens new polyurea grease production plant

FUCHS PETROLUB SE has opened a new fully automated production plant for polyurea and other lubricating grease specialties at its Kaiserslautern site in Germany.

“The new production is one of our final projects in the global growth initiative launched in 2016, which is focused on capacity increase in line with advanced technology,” said Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board of FUCHS PETROLUB SE. “It will enable us to significantly increase the production capacity of polyurea greases, allowing us to respond quickly to specific customer requirements and supply tailor-made polyurea greases, for example for use in the e-mobility, wind power and food industries.”

Commenting on the opening of this plant, Lucas Haaß, Managing Director of FUCHS LUBRITECH and responsible for Production and Supply Chain, said: “The new plant is a milestone for the entire FUCHS Group in terms of the production and distribution of polyurea greases. The production concept implemented will serve as a blueprint for other Group sites and sets a global standard for grease technology at FUCHS.”

The FUCHS Group develops, produces and markets high-grade lubricants and related specialties for virtually all industries and areas of application. Formed in Mannheim in 1931, the Group employs almost 6,000 people worldwide at 58 operating companies.
