STRATCO, Inc. celebrated its new world headquarters open house with a special event that coincided with the Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association Annual Meeting, Oct. 15-18.
This event was highlighted by a ribbon cutting ceremony and champagne toast with Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane.
The annual meeting is an international draw, and over 100 people attended the event at STRATCO in the Scottsdale Airpark district, according to a press release.
“As a supporter of ILMA and the National Lubricating Grease Institute, I was thrilled to host this event and share our facility – including our new lab, featuring the Pilot Contactor Reactor – with other industry professionals,” said Diane Graham, STRATCO CEO, in the release. “We were happy to see our friends and colleagues enjoying themselves and our beautiful Arizona weather.”
STRATCO has been involved in NLGI since its inception in 1933, and the European Lubricating Grease Institute since its inception 25 years ago.
STRATCO’s new location provides a more functional space for its Pilot Plant that is used for research and development, as well as for laboratory services for customers in the development of lubricating grease formulations and the investigating of new product lines. These new facilities will bring benefit to
STRATCO’s customers in the lubricating grease industry and other industries where reacting, mixing and blending technologies are needed.
Originally based in Kansas City, MO, STRATCO, Inc. is a privately-held firm headquartered in Scottsdale.
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
