During his opening speech, Santos explained that the new surfactant unit, located in Belford Roxo, near Rio de Janeiro, plays a crucial role in achieving Lubrizol’s long-term strategy for growth in Brazil, which is one of the largest and fastest growing markets for personal care and home care products in the world.

"We are expanding our local operations with a larger portfolio of products,” said Rick Tolin, vice president and general manager, Lubrizol Personal and Home Care.
