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.
