CAM2 International purchases Vicksburg, MS Plant Which Will Become its Corporate Headquarters and Flagship Blending & Packaging Facility

CAM2 International, L.L.C. announced today the company has acquired an existing lubricant blending and packaging facility located in Vicksburg, MS.


CAM2 International, LLC announce the acquisition of a new facility strategically located in Vicksburg, Mississippi that will become CAM2's new corporate headquarters and serve as CAM2's Southern US blending and packaging operation. This modern and efficient 93,000 SF facility is situated on 19 acres and has access to the Mississippi river for receiving and shipping via marine barge, rail or truck. The site features a full-line manufacturing plant with a single shift operating capacity of over 100 million gallons annually, a modern and efficient warehouse and distribution facility, and state of the art testing and packaging operation.


CAM2 says it is excited by the acquisition of this outstanding facility in Vicksburg, MS because it will not only strengthen the distribution of its premier brand CAM2, but also allows the company to surpass the needs of its private label customers. They say this acquisition will allow all of its operations to be contained within one facility which will enhance the effectiveness and productivity of CAM2's operations and improve the service levels it provides to its customers.


"After careful consideration, our team concluded that the City of Vicksburg and its Port facilities were a perfect fit for a growing CAM2, providing us with low cost freight access to the nearby sources of many of our raw materials along with the availability of this outstanding and existing facility. The location in Vicksburg aligns perfectly with our passion to become the most reliable lubricant supplier in the world," said President Walter Tyson


"This year marks the 45th anniversary of the development of CAM2 and moving into this stellar facility will provide CAM2 with an even stronger foundation to fulfill our vision of providing our customers with quality products at competitive prices and strengthen our foothold through the United States," added Jack Baker, CEO.


The company says this project represents a significant capital investment by CAM2, will create numerous jobs in the first year of operations for the Vicksburg, MS area and will allow CAM2 to better service its existing and future customers.


EDITORIAL NOTE: The plant CAM2 acquired in Vicksburg was purchased from Shell and it was formerly a Pennzoil Facility.
