Oct. 19, 2022—U.S. Lubricants has blended its first batch of THRIVE 0W-20 engine oil at their newly acquired facility in Baltimore, Maryland, according to a press release.
U.S. Lubricants is a division of U.S. Venture. The plant in Baltimore will blend automotive and heavy-duty lubricants as well as other industrial lubricants.
This facility is large, and allows for more space to manufacture private label lubricants for OEM customers, as well as the opportunity to expand toll blending capabilities. This process leverages strategic vendor relationships for the best additives and base oils for formulation.
“The move into the Baltimore market allowed us to expand into the mid-major market,” said James Williams, president at U.S. Lubricants via the press release. “We’re thrilled to have blended our first batch and for the opportunities this will offer both our strategic customers and the growth of our THRIVE brand.”
