Letter from Lubrizol’s CEO
As a global specialty chemical company, today's Lubrizol is a pioneer and recognized leader in supplying complex chemistries to improve vehicle performance. We've also become a leading global producer of advanced polymers and additives that elevate the performance of everyday consumer and industrial products.
Yet much about Lubrizol remains consistent with the vision and values of the founders who established this great company way back in 1928 in a small building on Manor Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.
Our relentless focus on solving our customers' toughest challenges with innovative yet practical specialty chemical solutions... our culture, which fosters collaboration and encourages continuous learning... our wide-ranging opportunites for career and personal growth... our responsible corporate citizenship... and, underlying it all, our strong ethics, corporate philosophy and talents of our people.
I am tremendously proud of the organization that generations of Lubrizol men and women have built and nurtured. And I am excited about the many opportunities I see ahead for Lubrizol, our customers and our employees.
As part of Berkshire Hathaway, we have strong support for pursuing opportunites to continue creating value for our customers. We are well positioned to execute our growth agenda, which includes geographic expansion, product innovation, strategic investments and complementary acquistions.
I extend my deepest thanks to the customers who give us a chance to be an essential ingredient in their success... the communities that allow us to operate and prosper within their boundaries... and, most of all, our dedicated employees, who strive for success each and every day.
Thanks for visiting us online. I invite you to explore and learn more about Lubrizol.
James L. Hambrick
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
