Area Development Online News Desk (05/05/2014)
A manufacturer of high quality lubricant products, CAM2 International acquired an existing lubricant blending and packaging facility in Vicksburg, Mississippi, that will become its new corporate headquarters and serve as CAM2’s Southern United States 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.

“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.

Company officials said “CAM2 is excited by the acquisition of this outstanding facility in Vicksburg, Mississippi, because it will not only strengthen the distribution of our premier brand CAM2, but also allows us to surpass the needs of our private label customers. This acquisition will allow all of our operations to be contained within one facility which will enhance the effectiveness and productivity of our operations and improve the service levels we provide to our customers.”
