The Lutterworth facility is the latest facility further expanding the extensive network of Brenntag blending facilities. Russel Argo, President of Brenntag UK & Ireland, said: "The evolution of our blending business has been in the more traditionally industrial bases in the north of England and the North of the UK so the location of the site in Lutterworth, which is right in the middle of England, gives us a really strong base from which to grow our business throughout the midlands and further into the South." The Lutterworth facility has larger tanks than many of Brenntag’s other facilities, gives better batch control and batch quality control in particular to give a much finer and finished product for the customers. It also allows to make new blends thus adding new products into Brenntag portfolio.
Brenntag has seen impressive growth over recent years and is confident that it is delivering the service its customers require.The new Lutterworth site is one of the most ‘futureproof’ sites the company operates. The design for this blending facility was derived directly from research the company carried out in the market, obtained by the Brenntag team from both customers and suppliers. Argo said: “Our customers enjoy talking to somebody that they recognise as having their interests at heart. I think that’s an important factor when you’re considering using a Brenntag blended product. A lot of the time customers are outsourcing activities which are non core to them, and they are outsourcing to us because those activities are core to us. That allows the customers to focus on what is important to them.”
Argo added: “Some of the key things that differentiates Brenntag from our competition are the added value we can bring alongside our attention to detail and an understanding that a customer needs to be looked after on a local basis through our local network as well as having access to all of the strengths and benefits that being part of a global organisation brings. We are proud of our flexibility and focus on customer service, and that combination of offering and skills is probably one of the key aspects to Brenntag’s success.”
The new facility will enable Brenntag to offer a combination of products. As the industries Brenntag supply request a high quality of products, Brenntag UK & Ireland have invested in additional laboratory and quality control equipment to backup the investment in the manufacturing plant.
