Our story of success started back in 1936, on October 26th, with the founding of the former Mineralölwerk Lützkendorf. After the reunification of Germany the company changed its name to ADDINOL – Additives in Oil, which had been the name of its most famous brand before.

Today we develop and produce high-performance lubricants of the latest generation in Leuna, a chemical site of international standing. Among these are automotive lubricants for highest demands and ground-breaking developments for industrial applications.

From the laboratory we proceed along to production. In the first hall additives are produced and the plant for manufacturing viscosity index improvers greets us with ear-splitting noise.

Then we pass a whole battery of sections and connections. These lead base oils and liquid additives to the blenders especially constructed for their purpose.

In these blenders we produce our high-performance lubricants according to our formulations and by incorporating our know-how and highly modern technology.

Every finished product undergoes strict quality checks at the laboratory. Only after passing these comprehensive checks the lubricants are shipped to the customers.

Bulk products are led into tank trucks directly on the spot, weighed exactly and then transported to their "place of action."

Other lubricants are being stored in tanks before they are filled into drums or containers …

After filling and labelling the finished products are brought to the ADDINOL logistics centre.

From here our high-performance lubricants start their journey to our distributor partners and customers.
