Golden Valley, MN – May 18, 2020 — Lube-Tech, a locally-owned company with roots going back to 1925, reports its new 111,725 square foot facility in Milwaukee is now open at 6600 North Industrial Road. Lube-Tech provides advanced energy, fluid technology, lubricants and services that help simplify operations, solve challenges, and accelerate performance for customers within the automotive, fleet, and manufacturing industries as well as well as some of the world’s largest OEMs. The industry-leading facility begins operations on May 18, 2020.
According to the EPA, 2 billion oil bottles are thrown away each year. That is 260 million pounds of plastic.
That same study found that each bottle of oil still has up to two ounces of oil in it after it has been poured. The leftover oil adds up to 16 million gallons.
This is an industry that is constantly evolving. Innovation leads to better products, better ways of doing things, and better ways to package. At one time, it was metal cans. Then, plastic bottles offered a more convenient, cheaper method. Now, more emphasis is put on the environmental impact of plastics.
There is an alternative to plastic bottles that takes up significantly less space in landfills and empties completely – flexible packaging pouches.
In business, finding something that differentiates you from your competitors sometimes requires investing in areas your competitors are unwilling to go. Ultimately that means finding people with the expertise and drive to seize an opportunity and turn it into success. For Golden Valley, Minnesota, based Lube-Tech, that differentiator is an engine testing facility and the people who make up its team.
