It specialises in engineering lubricants that have a positive impact on daily life, smoothing the way for all sorts of human requirements, such as energy supply and safe, nutritious food products.
CPI combines technical know-how with production capability and outstanding service, and it is one of the world’s most respected lubricant manufacturers. Lubrizol is the biggest producer of lubricant additives globally, and CPI is responsible for manufacturing three brands of refrigeration oils. These are Icematic, Emkarate RL and Solest.
CPI Engineering Services was acquired by The Lubrizol Corporation in 1996. With headquarters in Ohio, Lubrizol has manufacturing sites in 17 countries, and it owns technical and sales offices, warehouses and laboratories across the globe.
In 2007, Lubrizol acquired the Croda International Plc refrigeration lubricants business, and its products – including the Emkarate brand – were integrated into CPI. This improved the company’s ability to support customers by offering a wider range of products, plus improved technology. In 2012, Paratherm was also acquired during a phase of rapid expansion.
