Universal Lubricants Expanding In Colorado, Illinois, Missouri

Wichita, KS-based Universal Lubricants has opened a new 15,000-square-foot distribution center in the Denver suburb of Aurora, CO and expanded existing centers in University Park, IL and Fenton, MO.

“The new distribution center in Denver positions us to serve new customers throughout Colorado and in Wyoming,” said John Wesley, Universal Lubricants’ CEO. “Coupled with our renewed commitment to Chicago and St. Louis, these facilities expand and strengthen our solid presence throughout the Midwest and create a platform for continued growth in 2013.”

The Denver-area distribution center will serve the company’s growing customer base, including the lube centers of major national retailers and Enterprise Holdings, operator of Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental brands. In addition to passenger vehicles, the facility will collect spent oil and oil filters from industrial vehicles, heavy-duty trucks and railway engines.

Expansion of the Chicago and St. Louis distribution centers allows the company to serve auto dealers, oil-change retailers, auto parts stores, and retailers in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Missouri.

Universal Lubricants collects, re-refines, blends and redistributes its own motor oil, including the Eco Ultra line of lubricants. “Our Eco Ultra line of high performance lubricants is generating a great deal of interest, and we’re signing new contracts every day,” Wesley said. “We look forward to announcing our expansion to additional cities and states in the coming months.”
