Universal Lubricants has opened a new 52,000-square-foot oil warehouse and distribution center in leased space in Dallas. When fully staffed, the center will create over two dozen new jobs and house more than 35 employees.
The company hass offered a diverse product line of high-performance lubricants for a wide range of engines and equipment to customers in the Dallas area for more than 20 years.
With the opening of the new facility, Universal Lubricants becomes the primary distributor of Valvoline, a brand of Ahsland Inc. in the Dallas market, according to the company. Universal Lubricants already distributes Valvoline lubricants and chemicals in Kansas City and Wichita, Kan.
The company says it built a state-of-the-art re-refinery in Wichita and then acquired a group of waste oil collection companies to create an innovative, environmentally-friendly closed loop process. The company says it uses this process to collect, re-refine, blend and redistribute its own motor and engine oils.
“Sustainability will continue to be an important goal for businesses of all kinds in 2013, and Universal Lubricants is at the forefront of the re-refining movement,” says John Wesley, the company’s CEO. “This new center positions us to better serve existing customers and generate new business from the growing number of environmentally responsible auto dealers, oil-change installers, auto parts stores and retailers throughout the Dallas area."
The new facility is one of nine Universal Lubricants’ locations in Texas and one of four distribution centers the company has opened or expanded in the past year.
