On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, JX Nippon Oil & Energy USA, Inc. held an official groundbreaking ceremony for a 50,000 s.f. expansion to their Childersburg, Ala. facility. To meet the growing demand from their customers and for their own ENEOS brand of products, this expansion will increase the capacity of their lubricants manufacturing and warehouse operations. "ENEOS" was coined from the words "ENERGY" and "NEOS" which means NEW in Greek.
The $16 million investment will create 14 new jobs by 2017 and construction will be complete by the fall of 2015.
