Millers Oils announces investment in UK industry with new R&D centre, 2012

Millers Oils officially opened its state of the art Research and Development (R&D) centre in Brighouse, Yorkshire, today. Energy efficiency and CO2 reduction are currently high on the agenda for both industry and governments, yet Millers Oils – a proud Yorkshire company – has been supplying lubricants that help save energy for 125 years.

Millers Oils has invested more than £500,000 in the new facility providing them with the capability to develop low friction oils that set new standards for efficiency.

“The new R&D centre is essential to ensure we continue the steep growth we have experienced for the last decade,” said Nevil Hall, joint managing director of Millers Oils. “As a relatively small company it is important that we develop innovative solutions to meet the challenges our customers face. Today we have seen that there is a huge amount of interest in Millers Oils. It’s a testament to all the people who work here that we continue to punch above our weight and draw such interest from key figures in the industry such as Lord Drayson who took time out of his schedule to speak at the event.”

Millers Oils has always pursued technical achievement rather than marketing as a formula for success. Through products like the revolutionary Nanodrive oils, efficiency-boosting Solform gel and independently endorsed VSPe fuel additives, the company has built its reputation, while almost trebling its turnover in the last 11 years.

Recognized for its commercial success in 2012 with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, the company continues to expand its horizons with major industrial supply contracts at home and overseas. The award was presented at the event by Vice Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Mr Tim Hare.

Underlining the value of motorsport, both for development and exposure, Millers Oils has extended its support for Callum Black, British Rally Championship driver. Callum was originally a member of the Millers Oils rising star scheme and now has a three year sponsorship deal in the new Millers Oils 586 Team Citroen DS3.

While motorsport users of Nanodrive oils have reported power increases of up to 5.6 percent, application of the technology to road car oils is set to reduce fuel bills by up to 2.5 percent for the everyday motorist. Wherever machinery operates and wheels turn, Millers Oils has a lubricant that helps to improve energy efficiency.
