West Yorkshire based Klüber Lubrication GB has signalled clear intent of its growth programme and commitment to the region with a move to larger, purpose built premises in Huddersfield.
The business has moved to Pennine Business Park, Huddersfield, as part of a strategic move to boost growth through additional sales and improved customer service in existing and new markets.
Part of the Freudenberg corporation, Klüber Lubrication GB is the world’s leading manufacturer of high quality lubricants supplying manufacturers across diverse sectors including food manufacturing, marine, oil and gas production.
Klüber Lubrication GB , has been keen to boost its UK and Ireland offering for some time and the move to Huddersfield will enable the company to embed technical advantage, industry leading product and system development while broadening its customer offer.
Previously located in Halifax, the company is committed to Yorshire’s skilled and experienced support team able to underpin the expertise delivered by highly qualified technical field staff around the UK.
Expanding that side of the business is critical to the business delivering planned and sustainable growth focusing on new markets.
A key area of growth in recent years has been marine, which makes the Yorksire location ideal being in close proximity to Scotland and the burgeoning East Yorkshire and The Humber region.
Paul Holland, MD Sales & Marketing, said:
“The marine sector has been a major growth area for us in recent years and we have invested heavily in the development of a new website specifically for that.
“We recently celebrated 40 years in Yorkshire and it is strategically important to Klüber Lubricaton GB to ensure continued delivery of sales, implementation and support to new and existing customers around the UK and Ireland.
“The purpose built offices at Pennine Business Park will enable us to implement our own growth plan and marry that with key customer service targets that will underpin our ambitious expansion plans, providing us with room to grow.”
“That naturally means we will have to expand our internal and external team and already we have started a recruitment drive for highly skilled, technically astute personnel.
“Klüber Lubrication GB is a company at the cutting edge of industrial solutions, offering pioneering technologies to a diverse range of existing and emerging sectors.
“Being located in West Yorkshire allows us to consolidate our brand in existing markets and develop new ones in a sustainable way remaining true to our ethos of high quality, tribiological solutions to all industries and across all sectors.
“The recent launch of Klübertherm HB 88 – 182 was a case in point.
“Basically it is an economically efficient lubricant with excellent high temperature properties.
“The pioneering grease performs at high temperature and works for both low loads combined with high speeds and high loads combined with low speeds.
“As well as performing at high temperatures it does not leave residues, has better degradability properties and offers increased cost efficiencies.
“One of many industrial solutions we will deliver from our new Huddersfield office.”
