Global oil firm announces expansion of West Yorkshire plant
An oil firm which is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its blending plant this month has revealed plans to expand its West Yorkshire site.
Global oil manufacturer Total Lubricants has announced plans to develop and expand its blending plant at Ferrybridge.
The development plan includes the purchase of four acres of land adjacent to the plant, which will enable Total Lubricants’ Blending Plant to develop and upgrade the site, review its warehousing operations and enhance the blending process.
Planning permission has already been granted for the expansion, and work is scheduled to commence in 2021.
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.”
