Delfin Group USA Will Increase Manufacturing in South Carolina

Company's headquarters is in Russia

Less than one year after purchasing the former Shell Lubricants plant in North Charleston, Delfin Group USA is announcing a $55 million capital investment in the facility. Delfin will retrofit the existing infrastructure to support manufacturing of its automotive and industrial lubricants to serve both domestic and global markets. Delfin Group USA is the North American division of the company, which is headquartered in Moscow, Russia.

The company purchased the North Charleston 42-acre site in late 2007 after the existing lubricant operation was closed in December 2006. The site has been used as a service station or lubricant oil terminal since 1910. The expansion will add 160 new jobs over the next three to four years.

This competitive expansion project was facilitated by the Charleston Regional Development Alliance in partnership with numerous public- and private-sector allies including the S.C. Department of Commerce, Charleston County and the City of North Charleston. The Alliance is an economic development organization working to advance the economy of the three-county Charleston region.

"With global commerce a key driver of the local economy, nearly 90 companies in our region have international ownership," said Alliance Chairman Jim Bryan. "Delfin is our only Russian company, and this expansion proves we have the right mix of world-class assets to continue broadening our international community."
