Universal Lubricants announced the opening of a new 52,000-square-foot oil warehouse and distribution center in leased space in Dallas. When fully staffed, the center will create over two dozen new jobs and house more than 35 employees.

Universal Lubricants has been offering a diverse product line of high-performance lubricants for a wide range of engines and equipment to customers in the Dallas area for more than 20 years. This new facility, located in a northeast Dallas industrial complex, will allow the company to serve as the delivery agent for Valvoline, a brand of Ashland Inc. in the Dallas market.

Universal Lubricants already distributes Valvoline lubricants and chemicals in Kansas City and Wichita, Kansas.

Universal Lubricants acquired a group of waste oil collection companies to create an innovative, environmentally friendly closed loop process. Through this process the company collects, re-refines, blends and re-distributes its own motor and engine oils.

Universal Lubricants operates a network of 36 locations offering lubricants, new oil delivery, used oil recovery services, and comprehensive industrial and environmental services throughout the U.S.

As part of the company's Closed Loop Process, the new Dallas facility also will house a state-of-the art indoor tank farm to store the new oil that will be delivered in bulk.
