Infineum, one of the world leaders in the formulation, manufacture and marketing of petroleum additives for fuels and lubricants, recently held a Ground-breaking Ceremony at their Headquarters in Milton Hill. This was to mark the start of their multimillion pound investment into their site close to Didcot.
Infineum senior leaders and project team members joined with representatives from Kier Construction Central, who will build the new facility, to break the ground and officially start the construction of this new building.
“Technology leadership in our global marketplace is critical to our success. This new extension to our existing facilities at Milton Hill will enable even higher levels of collaboration and innovation which in turn will lead to even better products being developed for our customers. We continue to invest in our future growth and this new facility will be a key part of our global network” says Trevor Russell, CEO of Infineum International Ltd.
Mark Pausey, Managing Director of Kier Construction Central notes; “Kier is looking forward to working closely with Infineum on this important project and continuing to grow our presence in the Oxfordshire market.”
The new Global Centre of Innovation will deliver the necessary infrastructure to support their technology leadership and to enable improved innovation, with a state of the art new building. The facility will bring more than 80 new jobs to Oxfordshire. It will encompass new laboratories for research and development, a variety of collaborative meeting spaces and a new restaurant for all employees and visitors.
The project is due to complete mid-2019, with normal Infineum operations continuing onsite throughout the build.
