ASHBY-DE-LA-ZOUCHUK, UK -- Electrolube reported worldwide sales rose 35% year-over-year on strong demand in the UK, China and Germany. It was the company’s highest growth rate in 72 years.

Electrolube’s sales in Asia rose more than 30%, while total European sales were up over 10%.

Electrolube group managing director Ron Jakeman said, “2013 has been an excellent year for Electrolube. We delivered a powerful global performance throughout the year across all the markets we serve, with the highlight being that we have sold more complete solutions to manufacturers this year than ever before in our 72 year history. The launch of our new global identity, together with receiving the ISO 14001 standard for our Environmental Management System and the debut of new legislation-compliant chemical products, have created a real buzz around the brand with customers clearly delighted with our offerings and our collaborative approach to providing solutions for all of their specialist chemical requirements. Looking ahead to 2014, we will continue to invest in our business to support our ambitious plans for growth and gear the company even more intensively towards emerging technologies, product expansion and customer development.”

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
