Lucas Oil Opens Advanced Grease Manufacturing Facility

Production from the Lucas Oil grease plant is set to begin in late summer.

Lucas Oil announced the opening of its expanded grease manufacturing capabilities within its 400,000 square foot production facility in Indiana.

According to the latest press information from the company, the enhancement incorporates a new production area dedicated to developing and manufacturing industrial and commercial greases, which it said “addresses a national grease shortage that has impacted multiple industries since supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic.”

New grease production capability occupies approximately 25,000 sq. ft. of the existing 400,000 sq. ft facility which includes an ISO-certified research and development lab, blending and production lines, according to Lucas Oil.

“Bringing a dedicated grease plant online was a strategic decision to increase our production capabilities and have a specialized space that can help increase our output, efficiency and ability to develop more advanced formulations,” said Lucas Oil CEO Morgan Lucas. “By investing in the buildout of this facility, we’re not just committing to quality; we’re embracing the responsibility to boost the industrial sector and the larger economy.

“This plant allows us to create and deliver superior, reliable industrial greases that can enhance equipment longevity and efficiency, which is crucial for our industrial customers looking to optimize their operations and reduce downtime. Ultimately, this move is about providing a product that stands up to rigorous use and supports a sustainable economic future by improving overall industrial productivity.”
