The new fully equipped facility will be used for both quality control and research and development

Leading specialist lubricant manufacturer Metalube is to more than double the size of its laboratory facilities at its Manchester headquarters.

Already an award winning innovator, the company plans to considerably increase its laboratory capacity to 126sqm. The new fully equipped facility will be used for both quality control and research and development.

Chris Nettleship, Technical Director says: "We create the best possible lubricants available in the market and our laboratory team plays a huge part in this. We have in recent times increased the number of chemists within Metalube by 25%. We can now give them an outstanding 21st century laboratory to work from."

The new space will be purpose built and fitted with the latest specialist laboratory furniture. It will meet all the requirements for a modern day lubricant developer.

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.
