Who are we?

Lubrizol, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is a technology-driven global organisation that combines complex specialty chemicals to optimise the quality, performance and value of customers’ products while reducing their environmental impact. Lubrizol produces and supplies technologies to customers in the global transportation, industrial and consumer markets. We know that Lubrizol isn’t a common household name to most people. So it might surprise you that our products and technologies are in things you use every day – quite likely on the surfaces you touch and in fluids in the vehicles you drive, in the shampoos and soaps you use, in the medicines you take, in the clothes you wear and in electronic devices and plumbing systems in your home.

Our European marketing and technical centre, Lubrizol Hazelwood, supports an extensive range of clients and Original Equipment Manufacturers across the globe. The Hazelwood site is located in a rural setting around eight miles from Derby city centre. With a vibrant and constantly growing list of things to do and see, the city offers something to suit all tastes. Be it lively nights out, a thriving live music scene (Derby recently won the title of ‘the city of festivals’), an abundance of shops and restaurants, or indeed, a range of sports at the new Derby Arena, the choice is endless. If you prefer more peaceful surroundings, the beautiful Peak District is right on the doorstep, offering amazing scenery, idyllic country pubs, and fantastic opportunities for outdoor pursuit enthusiasts. You will find that Lubrizol offers a wealth of career and development opportunities.
