FUCHS opens new grease plant in Isando/Johannesburg, South Africa

FUCHS PETROLUB SE, the world's largest independent manufacturer of
high-quality lubricants and related products, has officially opened a EUR 8
million grease plant expansion at its factory in Isando, South Africa on May
16, 2018. The grease plant with its state-of-the-art technology will
manufacture a large variety of specialty grease grades which meet the rising
demands of African customers for ever-increasing quality and responsiveness.

"This new facility is a fully automated and very modern grease plant. It
will serve the South African market and allows us to export high quality
grease into other African countries. It is part of our global growth
initiative investing in existing and new plants focused on capacity increase
in line with advanced technology," emphasizes Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the
Executive Board of FUCHS PETROLUB SE.

Paul Deppe, Managing Director of FUCHS LUBRICANTS SOUTH AFRICA, adds "FUCHS
sees the importance and demand for specialty grease growing significantly
and wants to be in a position to support this increase in demand from our
customers, particularly in the mining industry. But importantly, the reasons
for building the new grease plant is not only for capacity, but to inject
new levels of process excellence and quality into our grease manufacturing."

The plant design and automation conforms to FUCHS' latest standards
worldwide and ensures that the quality of grease produced is of highest
standards. Future expansion in capacity as well as future grease
technologies, which are under development in the FUCHS Group's R&D
laboratories, were also considered during the plant design phase.
