Lubricant blender Exol has begun work on the redevelopment of its Rotherham site, with the aim to complete the project in July 2021. This new development is part of the firm’s reinvestment strategy.

Exol plant building is being replaced

The project at Rotherham involves the replacement of the existing building with a new, enlarged one. This will house additional blending vessels and storage tanks to increase the firm’s blending capabilities.


The plan will increase floorspace from around 40,000 sq ft to over 55,000 sq ft. The ridge height will also be taller so the plant can accommodate the new, larger tanks.

Steve Dunn, Sales Director at Exol Lubricants said: “We are extremely proud of our re-investment plans and work closely with customers to demonstrate the benefits they bring. Increasing the capacity at Rotherham further supports our commitment to customers as demand increases.”

The firm currently sells around sells 80 million litres of oil every year.
