In 1982, we inaugurated our newly built grease plant in Nol, just north of Gothenburg. This state-of-the-art manufacturing facility has been continually upgraded since then and expanded its capacity. A full range of lubricating greases is produced here in different types of equipment including specially designed pressurized vessels and open kettles. AXEL specialties manufactured in Nol include synthetic lithium complexes, polymer enhanced bio-greases, “Alassca” and “DubBiLit” functional soaps, and also our patented EPOCH™ technology. Company headquarters (Axel International AB) and other central functions such as Group R&D laboratories are also located in Nol.

In 1990, AXEL acquired grease making facilities in Heijningen, the Netherlands, from Timac BV. This very efficient manufacturing plant has since been upgraded and now also become the biggest production unit within the whole AXEL Group. The location, close to the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp, makes it suitable for overseas export business as well as for continental Europe. Here, concentrating on operational excellence and “lean philosophy”, we specialise in manufacturing lithium and lithium complex greases in our modern Stratco™ Contactor type pressure vessels. AXEL specialties produced include calcium sulphonate complex, bentonite and special MoS2 containing greases.

In 2006, AXEL acquired the grease making facilities of Christol Grease in Niort from Shell. The current location includes both an industrial grease plant as well as a new and dedicated facility for food grade (H1) lubricants. The industrial plant is geared to flexibility, providing products and services to a large number of smaller companies and is extremely efficient in filling smaller packages such as cartridges. The food grade facility is truly state-of-the-art, approved for both Kosher and Halal type products and has, in addition, been qualified by NSF according to the international standard ISO 21469. Its proximity to the port of La Rochelle also makes it suitable for overseas export. AXEL specialties here include biodegradable railroad greases and, of course, a full range of foodgrade lubricants for the whole AXEL Group.
