Idemitsu expands US plant

Japanese lubes producer, Idemitsu, is set to expand it's US blending plant and create new jobs.

The blending operation and storage centre in Jeffersonville, Indiana, is being prepared for a $21m makeover including building and equipment improvements for the site which has been in operation since 1992.

The Japanese company, which produces high-performance automotive and industrial lubes, will boost its existing 60-strong workforce by a further 28 employees - expanding its annual payroll by around $1m by 2014.

Keen to maintain its relationship with the company, Southern Indiana State has provided tax relief and other incentives to help Idemitsu develop and expand its US operations.
