The Lubrizol Corporation has opened a new Global Capability Center (GCC) in Pune, India, as a hub to accelerate its growth in the region and enable closer collaboration for its customers and employees.

The 42,000-square-foot facility features wellness rooms, a cafeteria with a recreational area, a training area, and huddle rooms. The company says that a customer experience center showcases Lubrizol science and live plant installations throughout the facility. More than 200 regional employees, representing functions including engineering, supply chain, technology, finance, procurement, legal and HR are expected to be added to the site over the next year.
