FUCHS Invests GBP 10 Million at Its UK HDQ

FUCHS is building a new warehouse at its UK headquarters, as part of an ongoing GBP 10 (USD 13.3) million investment, which will include a new raw materials facility built at the New Century Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, site, and the installation of new, innovative manufacturing plant machinery. In the last 12 months the company has opened a new state-of-the-art head quarters building and improvements to the Research and Development Technical Centre.

The construction of the new 4,000-pallet warehouse will enable FUCHS to significantly increase its capacity for raw materials. The new raw materials warehouse will free off space allowing an existing building to become a specialist packaging area. The investment will see new machinery being installed in the factory which will include a robotic arm, automatic fill machine and a second “Lube Cube” machine to cope with the increasing demand for recyclable packaging.

Further investment is being planned, including a second robotic arm, driverless forklifts and automation upgrade to the existing production line.

“This is a hugely significant project which will have fantastic benefits for the business, It will elevate FUCHS Lubricants to a unique position as the only lubricant manufacturer in the UK with this type of facility, firmly placing us at the forefront in the R&D, manufacture and distribution of lubricants in the UK, and maintains our pledge to continually build for the future.” said Richard Halhead, managing director at FUCHS Lubricants (UK).

“Our ambitious aim is to produce the most modern lubricants blending plant in the UK, and we feel this significant expenditure in our infrastructure will put us well on the road to achieving that,” said Halhead.
