Name of the Project
Fuchs Lubricants development project.

Isando, Johannesburg, in Gauteng, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Independent lubricant manufacturer Fuchs Lubricants South Africa, a subsidiary of Fuchs Petrolub.

Project Description
The Phase 1 involved the construction of a new office complex and new warehouse.

The office block comprises three floors with different department divisions, so-called hot seats for external sales representatives, several meeting areas, boardrooms, a multipurpose medical room, a canteen with indoor and outdoor seating, coffee and tea stations, as well as a rooftop entertainment area.

There is scope to increase the size of the office in the future, if required.

The new warehouse system will provide much-needed storage space and modernisation of systems, and enhance efficiencies for the company.

Phase 2 will comprise a new lubricants plant to bolster the company’s strong growth and expansion plans for the continent.

Potential Job Creation
Not stated.

Capital Expenditure
Phase 1 of the project will require an investment of about R250-million.

Phase 2 will cost about R500-million.

Planned Start/End Date
The warehouse construction took 15 months, starting in March 2021, while the office construction was an 11-month project, starting in June 2021. Fuchs officially launched its newly built head office and warehouse on May 13.

Latest Developments
Planning is well advanced for Phase 2, with a full study already undertaken into the new blending plant.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
