AUSTRALIAN MADE FUCHS FULL STEAM AHEAD
Fuchs’ production facilities in Melbourne and Newcastle are running at full capacity
In a time of global uncertainty in the supply chain, Fuchs Lubricants Australasia says it is pushing on with full scale production at the company’s cutting-edge manufacturing facilities in Victoria and New South Wales.
Globally, Fuchs has developed, produced and sold lubricants and related specialties for more than 85 years – for virtually all areas of application and sectors. With 58 companies and more than 5,800 employees worldwide, the Fuchs Group says it is the leading independent supplier of lubricants.
The Fuchs model has been to support local manufacturing in all of these markets.
Fuchs has more than 100,000 customers in industries ranging from automotive suppliers, OEM, mining and exploration, metalworking, agriculture and forestry, power generation, mechanical engineering, construction and transport, steel, metal and cement industries, food, glass production, casting, forging industry and many others.
“We have our production facilities in Melbourne and Newcastle running at full capacity,” Fuchs Lubricants Australasia Managing Director, Wayne Hoiles, said.
“Add to that, our most recently acquired business Nulon, producing both lubricants and coolants in Sydney to make sure we can continue to supply our customers in these challenging times.”
Fuchs explains it is one of the largest lubricants companies still manufacturing products in Australia, and states that while that means the company is perfectly positioned to respond to the immediate needs of its customer, particularly in emergency situations, it also means jobs for Australians.
It says it is also the only company manufacturing lubricants, greases, engine coolants and additives in its own facilities in Australia.
In close consultation with its customers, Fuchs says it develops holistic, innovative and custom-made solutions for the most diverse applications. As a lubricant manufacturer, Fuchs says it stands for performance, sustainability, safety, reliability and efficiency while boldly standing by its promise of “Technology that pays back.”
