“Joint venture Azmol-British Petrochemicals ramped up production this year, with European automakers recommending its lubricants for their vehicles, and entered new markets for the first time since restarting opera­tions in 2017.

Azmol, a 50-50 Ukrainian-British joint venture, resumed production last year, following several years of dormancy. British lube maker Global Lubricants was tasked with Azmol-BP’s technical modernization.

The Ukrainian and British inves­tors succeeded in closing outstanding debts, modernized parts of the production process and renewed the enterprise’s workforce last year. Azmol-BP has total production capacity of nearly 225,000 metric tons per year, including 125,000 t/y of finished lubricants and close to 100,000 t/y of greases. It also has its own filling and packaging line”, the magazine said.
