World leading specialist lubricant manufacturer, Metalube Ltd, has been awarded a highly prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise for Innovation 2014. This is the second successive year that it has been honoured with this tremendous accolade. Exporting to over 86 countries worldwide, the company won in the International Trade category in 2013.

An Innovation Award is made to Metalube Ltd, for inventing a novel synthetic grease OCG 6000 to protect over-head electrical conductors. The corrosion-preventing grease can operate at over 200 degrees centigrade with an operational life exceeding 20 years. OCG 6000 extends the lives of conductors and ultimately, saves capital investments by delaying future renewal of pylon infrastructure.

Chris Nettleship, Technical Director says: "This is a great feather in our cap. To win the Queen's Award once is a major achievement, but to win two years in a row is a superb honour. I am so proud of all our chemists who innovate on a daily basis. It is fantastic that their hard work and technical expertise is now acknowledged by this esteemed recognition"

Metalube manufactures lubricants and greases mainly for the wire and cable industry. The majority of households will own everyday appliances that use copper wire, lubricated by Metalube and its greases protect the overhead power cables that conduct electricity to our homes. This experienced exporter employs 31 people and has offices in China, India and Brazil.
