A major upgrade to Total Lubricants’ UK blending plant in Ferrybridge, West Yorks.

The development plan includes the purchase of four acres of land adjacent to the plant, which will enable the firm to develop and upgrade the site, allowing greater scope for blending and warehousing products. The site currently employs 90 staff.


John Ryder, general manager of Total Lubricants’ Blending Plant in Ferrybridge, said: “As the only major energy company to still have a blending operation in the UK, we are in a strong position for the future due to the proximity to our customer base. The investment underlines our commitment to the Yorkshire region and the UK market, and we are pleased to make this announcement on the 50th anniversary of blending at Ferrybridge.”

Planning permission has been granted and construction is expected to start in 2021.
