Univar invests in development of

Univar : 21 March, 2011  (Company News)
Univar has invested around
This development positions Gothenburg as the primary receiving hub in the Nordics for the recently integrated Shell Lubricants business. It will take delivery of products from several Shell Lubricants plants across Europe.

Univarís investment not only increases tank storage capacity and handling facilities, but also sees the addition of a new laboratory. The laboratory houses dedicated technical staff and equipment, ensuring that all products meet the high quality assurance standards required for the lubricants market.

It is also expected that the new facility will offer synergies in the supply chain, enhancing Univarís capabilities in the region and promoting future business growth.

To maintain the quality standards necessary for this discerning market, products must be maintained at specific temperatures. The facility is designed and configured to allow all tanks and pipe work to be individually maintained at the exact temperature required for each product. Doing so avoids the energy wastage common in sites such as this, where tanks are often kept warm unnecessarily. Energy efficiency and carbon footprint reduction are important aspects of Univarís sustainability commitments.

Jorgen Mile, Operations Director, for Univar in the Nordics said, ďWe are delighted about bringing this operation on-stream. It is a clear demonstration of our commitment to investing with our key partners and further improving our ability to supply lubricants to our Nordic customers.Ē
