Castrol has announced the opening of the Castrol Americas Technology Center in Wayne, New Jersey, according to a press release.
The 12,000-square-foot laboratory was funded by a $7.5M investment by BP and will house research on engine and driveline oils, industrial lubricants, and fluids for electric vehicles.
More than 25 Applied Science technologists will be conducting research at the facility. The laboratory marks the first time Castrol has had automotive and industrial lubricant technology teams supporting the US, Canada, and Latin America in one place.
A grand opening ceremony was held and private tours of the new facility were offered.
“It’s great to see the opening of our new facility and have our technology teams based together in a new high-tech lab,” said Advanced Lubricants Products VP Rebecca Yates. “The lab will help us develop products to address the current and future needs of our customers.”
