10.29.18

To continue providing dedicated support to its industry partners

Lubrizol has unveiled plans to invest more than $25 million in its Calvert City, KY manufacturing facility. The investment follows a recent $10 million expansion at the site to improve the company's safety management standards and create a world class quality laboratory.  
 
The facility specializes in the production of Carbopol polymers and Pemulen polymeric emulsifiers. These polymers are used in consumer goods for the personal care, home care, and pharmaceutical markets. This expansion will include advanced, proprietary process technology that will allow the Calvert City facility to continue to provide Lubrizol's partners with high quality products.
 
"In response to increasing market demand, this investment will enable us to expand production capacity and update our infrastructure at our Calvert City facility while continuously improving safety and quality," said Deb Langer, senior vice president and general manager, Lubrizol Personal, Home and Healthcare. "The expansion is critical in allowing our team to continue to provide dedicated service and support to our global partners."
