October 18, 2022 (Appleton, WI) – U.S. Lubricants, a division of U.S. Venture, is excited to have blended their first batch of THRIVE® 0W-20 engine oil in their recently acquired Baltimore, Maryland facility 

The Baltimore plant will primarily blend automotive and heavy-duty lubricants, in addition to various industrial lubricants. This larger facility provides space to increase the manufacturing of private label lubricants for OEM customers and expands toll blending capabilities, a process that leverages strategic vendor relationships to procure the best additives and base oils required for formulation.   

“The move into the Baltimore market allowed us to expand into the mid-major market,” said James Williams, President at U.S. Lubricants. “We’re thrilled to have blended our first batch and the opportunities this will offer both our strategic customers and the growth of our THRIVE® brand.”   

With this new facility, U.S. Lubricants will expand their footprint by selling products to distributors on the East Coast. The Baltimore facility is rail-served and has efficient transloading capability maintaining the ability to ship products into the current footprint. The location off the Port of Baltimore allows U.S. Lubricants to blend greater volumes and transport throughout the country, uniquely positioning them to be nimble and implement changes quickly. 

U.S. Lubricants offers a comprehensive range of services from the development of the product, to packaging, and shipment tailored to your business goals and requirements.
