The Fuchs Petrolub group has opened a lubricant blending and packaging plant in Khartoum, Sudan. The facility is operated by Fuchs licensee in Sudan, Petrobash Multiactivities Co.
Petrobash, which is based in Khartoum, was serving as Fuchs distributor in Sudan before the companies agreed to expand the operation. The plant has capacity to make 36,000 metric tons of lubricants per year with its current staffing of one shift per day. It opened late last year, according to Fuchs vice president for the region, who spoke to Lube Report in an interview last week.
