Universal Lubricants recently opened a new 52,000-square-foot oil warehouse and distribution center in Dallas. When fully staffed, the center will create more than 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 will allow the company to serve as the primary distributor of Valvoline lubricants in the Dallas market. Universal Lubricants already distributes Valvoline lubricants and chemicals in Kansas City and Wichita, Kan.

"We are excited to expand our partnership with Valvoline to the Dallas area where we have been building relationships with local customers for more than two decades," said Rick Palmore, Universal Lubricants' vice president of distribution and sales. "This area represents a great growth market for both our companies, and we look forward to bringing high-quality, high-performance products to even more local businesses."

Universal Lubricants operates a network of 36 facilities nationally, offering high-quality lubricants, new oil delivery, used oil recovery services and comprehensive industrial and environmental services throughout the U.S. These products are engineered and manufactured specifically for all areas of industry.

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.
