On Friday, 5th December 2014, world leading lubricant specialist, Metalube Ltd was proudly presented its second Queen's Award for Enterprise. This prestigious honour, for Innovation, was presented at a ceremony held at the company's Manchester headquarters, by Mrs Edith Conn, Her Majesty's Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester.

The Innovation Award was made to Metalube for inventing OCG 6000, a synthetic grease that protects over-head line 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.

This is the second successive year that the company has been bestowed a Queen's Award for Enterprise. Exporting to over 86 countries worldwide, the company won in the International Trade category in 2013.

Robert Brown, Managing Director says: "It is a tremendously proud day for Metalube and I am particularly delighted for the company’s many innovators, who work in our laboratory. It is their skills that set us apart, and for one of our ground-breaking products to be publicly recognised is a great compliment."

Metalube manufactures a range of non-ferrous drawing oils and maintenance lubricants as well as a variety of corrosion protection and forming oils. This experienced exporter employs 34 people and has offices in China, India and Brazil.
