Fuchs, the world’s leading independent lubricant manufacturer.
FUCHS enjoys worldwide recognition for its innovative lubricants and specialty products for industrial and automotive applications.
Fuchs was originally founded in 1931 in Manheim by Rudolf Fuchs as an importer and distributor of high-quality refinery products, soon to expand beyond national borders.
During the 1960’s, the company strengthened its presence in the international markets, while during the 1970’s and 1980’s it further developed through product specialization and expansion.

Fuchs Lubrificanti Spa - the Italian Fuchs Group affiliate- is based in Buttigliera d’Asti, where the manufacturing plants, the Research and Development and Sales management departments of the Industrial and Automotive divisions are also located.
