Univar Inc. recently announced that it is building a new facility to expand its white oils handling and distribution capabilities. The investment will enable Univar to better service an extended agreement to distribute ExxonMobil’s white oil brands Marcol and Primol across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The plant is scheduled to open in Lieusaint, France, mid-year and will include a €600,000 (~ $867,336) “white room” development that complements the existing facility, which is licensed for packaging by the French Medicinal Authority. The white room will operate in line with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. A central feature will be the actual white room, which will have a filtered and pressurised air supply to provide the atmosphere required for maintaining “clean” filling conditions.

The production warehousing of incoming U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved packaging and finished materials will be in Univar’s state-of-the-art, 8,000-bay, narrow isle warehouse.
