Due to an upsurge in product demand, leading lubricants manufacturer Metalube has recently taken possession of the industrial unit located adjacent to its current site. This increases the space available to the company by over 70%.

Metalube now occupies a 1-hectare site, which includes a 2,500 sq. meter covered factory, warehousing and office space alongside a brand new state-of-the-art laboratory.  The company has also purchased four new Jungheinrich fork-lift trucks to service this new and improved site.  Two new blending tanks have also been purchased, which enhance manufacturing capability, enabling the company to keep up with increased demand.

Commenting on the new site Commercial Director, Douglas Hunt says:  “We were exceptionally fortunate that the site next door became available as we were fast outgrowing our existing facility.  The combined sites have blended together perfectly giving us a truly outstanding operations.”

He adds:  “As a management team, we have made an ongoing commitment to invest profits back into the business, improving the way we work and adding to our productivity.  This strategy has proven wise, given the demand we now have for our range of superior quality lubricants.”
