A COMPANY supplying high-performance motor oils is moving up a gear with a £1m-plus investment at its Brighouse headquarters.
Millers Oils said it was making a range of improvements to its production facilities and computer systems to improve services to customers in the UK and overseas.
This would set the firm on course for “a period of sustained business growth and expansion”.
The work includes introducing a new IT support system to provide up-to-the-minute information on order processing, stock levels and production schedules.
This will enable Millers Oils to respond more quickly to customer needs, reduce production times and speed up deliveries.
The company has also fitted out two new warehouses and improved its haulage operations to increase storage space for more than 3,000 products and pack lines.
Millers Oils has also installed new blending vessels to doubled blending capacity at the plant, improving its ability to make larger batches of lubricants and fuel treatments.
Sales and marketing director Steve Woollven said: “Millers Oils has been built upon a solid reputation of consistently producing high-quality advanced formulations based on industry-leading technical expertise.
“These necessary improvements and upgrades to our site will provide Millers Oils with the long-term foundations to support our expansion aims.
“We now have a site that matches our ambition to provide our growing and increasingly diverse customer base with the service levels they demand.”
Millers Oils, which was formed more than 120 years ago, supplies products for racing cars, vintage, veteran and classic cars, bikes and commercial vehicles, as well as the engineering and textile industries.
Among recent contracts, Millers Oils has become an official supplier to stock car racing organisations BriSCA F2 and the Oval Racing Council.
It is sponsoring this season’s Historic Formula Junior Championship, which sees up-and-coming drivers tearing up the track at such famous venues as Silverstone, Monaco and Monza.
The company is also sponsoring the inaugural season of the Toyota Sprint Series, which offers amateur racers the chance to compete in timed sprints across the UK.
