Production Engineer Next possible start date | Fors, Västerhaninge

A new and ultra-modern lubricant plant
We are proud of our new, modern production facility in Västerhaninge, which produces lubricants for the Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish markets. This is a purpose-built plant encompassing flows for production, warehousing and logistics, as well as R&D, customer analysis and quality control. The plant is designed to meet customers’ needs, with automation and digitalization on a completely different level to before. High-precision, state-of-the-art production equipment are governed by a process control system which ensures that production and storage are efficient and consistent. This is an investment that guarantees quality, with maximum repeatability securing stable, high-quality results. 


We have actively chosen a sustainability mindset from the beginning. In addition to the lower transport requirement that comes naturally by coordinating production and warehousing, the entire plant runs on fossil-free energy, with electrically powered boilers for process heating and cooling that runs on guaranteed green electricity. The building itself is heated and cooled using geothermal energy, and is also prepared for solar panels. This is a plant designed to meet both FUCHS’s and customers’ requirements in the future.

We have a long tradition of providing customized lubricant solutions for the Nordic market, and combined with delivering locally produced lubricants, we see this as an important service for our customers.
