LIQUI MOLY closes the year with new production record

Tuesday, January 04, 2022

Despite difficult market conditions, German oil and additive specialist, LIQUI MOLY, has a recorded a record production year. The company produced 105,000 tonnes of lubricant, 27% more than in the previous year. 

Managing Director Ernst Prost, said, “For the first time, we have passed the 100,000-tonne mark. What would be a strong performance anyway is even more impressive against the backdrop of adverse conditions.”

These adverse conditions include the shortage of raw materials, which not only upset the price structure but led to real bottlenecks and distortions in global logistics. This was also against a backdrop of producing increasingly numerous types of oil that are becoming more and more difficult to produce, making production even more complex.

This year, at LIQUI MOLY, production volume increased not only for oils, but also for additives. A total of 16.3 million cans of additives for fuel, oil and coolant came off the production line, an increase of 14% compared to 2020.

“The fact that we achieved this is thanks to our great team, which has overcome the hurdles with a great deal of improvisation, talent and flexibility,” says Ernst Prost. “Our continuous investment in modernizing production and logistics has also paid off.”
