Letter from Lubrizol’s CEO
In our 80+ years in business, Lubrizol has come a long way from its start in a small building on Manor Avenue, located in Cleveland. Today, we are one of the world’s leading suppliers of specialty chemicals for the transportation, industrial and consumer markets – reaching the far corners of the globe with laboratories and manufacturing facilities in 27 countries.
Our company continues to move in a strong, positive direction, and I am excited about the future of Lubrizol. As part of Berkshire Hathaway, we have strong support for pursuing opportunities to continue creating value for our customers, who look to us to provide innovative chemistries, formulations and solutions for some of the most demanding performance applications in the world. We are well positioned to continue executing our growth agenda, which includes geographic expansion, product innovation, strategic investments and complementary acquisitions.
Lubrizol is proud to be a participant and competitor in a global, high-tech industry, and I am honored to be part of this great company. I would be remiss if I did not thank 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 do and care so much each and every day.
Thank you for visiting our online home. And I invite you to learn more about us.
James L. Hambrick
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
