Letter from Lubrizol's CEO

Throughout the Lubrizol organization, our employees are focused on delivering value for our customers, and our accomplishments and forward momentum are the result of their efforts and quality of work.

We thrive on combining complex, specialty chemicals to optimize the quality, performance and value of our customers’ products while reducing their environmental impact. Our three business segments – Lubrizol Additives, Lubrizol Advanced Materials and Lubrizol Oilfield Solutions – have a long history and deep expertise in producing and supplying technologies to customers in the global transportation, industrial, consumer and oilfield markets.

Our priorities include expanding and strengthening our market positions to enhance our ability to anticipate and address customer needs. We remain guided by a three-pronged strategy to drive organic growth, improve operating profitability and strengthen our portfolio.

This strategy is underpinned by the values articulated in our corporate philosophy, which shapes how we act as a company. This includes our role as a responsible corporate citizen. Across the globe, we continue to focus on safety at our facilities, safeguarding the environment, engaging in our communities and partnering with our customers to drive sustainable practices.

By staying attentive to our strategy and values, I’m confident in the ability of our talented team to serve our global customers. Our position as part of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio enables our success, and I appreciate Warren Buffett’s continued support and encouragement.
