DIGITALIZATION AND CUSTOMIZATION IN THE US
Wireless sensor technology for industrial fluids constitutes a future market for our business. Products targeted at precisely this field are manufactured at Fluid Vision Technology LLC in Texas. The American company joined the FUCHS Group in March 2018, meaning that FUCHS customers will have the ability to monitor the condition of their process fluids digitally, automatically and in real time for optimizing fluid maintenance processes. This means improved performance, more uptime and reduced operating and waste-related costs. Thanks to the new specialty grease plant in Harvey, Chicago, customers in the US can now be confident that the specialty greases they require are of the exact same quality and composition as those in Europe and Asia. It covers 3,200 m² and cost around € 24 million. Since 2017, it has been supplying American customers with around 30 specialty greases for the North American automotive, truck, construction, railway and off-road markets. The adjoining R&D laboratory, which features a highly specialized test facility, enables the development of customized products.
