Fuchs Lubricants opens new UK office

Fuchs UK has invested in brand new offices at its headquarters in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.

The move forms part of the group’s continuing policy of investing in local facilities while growing global presence.

Some key factors in the design of the offices were energy efficiency and the requirement to create an environment for employees that encourages team work and creativity.The building utilises LED lighting, Climate Control systems and outstanding insulation properties.

Stefan Fuchs, chairman of the executive board, Dr Ralph Rheinboldt, member of the executive board, and Dagmar Steinert, ember of the executive board, CFO, flew to the UK to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony on 11 April.

As well as being the UK manufacturing plant for the Fuchs Group, Hanley is also the Fuchs Global Centre of Excellence for the specialist sectors machining, mining, glass and Silkolene motorcycle oils.

In support of these specialist areas, Fuchs has taken the opportunity to enhance the R&D Technical Centre which is attached to the new office block. It says that this will create additional capacity for analytical work carried out in the service and quality laboratories.

In addition, the new test centre will see additional machine tools being installed to enhance the CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) capabilities already in place.This, taken together with new test field building in Mannheim, home of Fuchs Global, gives the UK company unparalleled test facilities in the industrial and automotive sectors, it added.
