Castrol Industrial Streamlining U.S. Manufacturing and Distribution
April 7, 2009
Castrol Industrial North America Inc., Naperville, IL, is implementing changes designed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its North American manufacturing, storage and distribution operations.
The sharp economic downturn is having a significant impact on many of our customers says Dave Fuerst, president. "It is crucial for us to continue driving our own efficiency efforts to be competitive in the marketplace."
Among the changes announced was the consolidation of manufacturing operations at Castrol's Warminster, PA site, which will drive further scale and procurement efficiencies for the business and create a world-scale industrial fluid manufacturing and supply operation. Castrol will close a smaller manufacturing plant in Vernon, CA.
Castrol also announced that it would consolidate its East and Midwest warehousing and logistics operations to a single site in the East coast and close a number of smaller depots. Castrol will continue to support customers through its route-to-market strategy which includes both direct sales and its distribution network.
