More storage space and energy for ADDINOL
In order to meet the steadily growing demand for ADDINOL lubricants, a major investment package was approved four years ago, which should significantly increase the capacities in production and storage. A new tank facility was already installed in 2019, which enables ADDINOL to have larger quantities of raw materials in stock for production. Now, in October 2022, a new warehouse was put into operation, which doubles the storage capacity for manufactured products. Larger batches of lubricants in high demand can be pre-produced to avoid delivery stoppages. Logistical processes are also improved by the newly created space. The completion of the warehouse comes just in time. After all, ADDINOL is still growing and was able to achieve a revenue of more than 100 million Euro for the first time in the business year 21/22.
Green power against the energy crisis
In order to make the best possible use of the new warehouse inside and out, a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof, which will generate a third of ADDINOL’s electricity needs at the Leuna site in the future. The plant will supply approx. 425,000 kWh of electricity per year. With this investment ADDINOL is a pioneer at the chemical site in Leuna and well prepared for the current energy crisis. Moreover, the solar panels are another step towards the goal to produce climate-neutral lubricants in the future. The Minister President of Saxony-Anhalt, Dr. Reiner Haselhoff, travelled to the commissioning of the photovoltaic plant and did not miss the opportunity to inaugurate the plant together with the InfraLeuna Managing Director, Dr. Christof Günther, and our Managing Director, Georg Wildegger. An expansion of the solar panels to other buildings of ADDINOL Lube Oil GmbH is currently being examined in order to become less dependent on external suppliers.
