The range of lubricant products in the automotive sector is enormous – and for customers it's getting harder and harder to find what they need. The new small packs for all automotive FUCHS product brands – TITAN, AGRIFARM, MAINTAIN, PLANTO, and SILKOLENE – rise to this challenge: The Group has optimized its small packs globally for the quantities 1, 4, and 5 liters, not just visually but also in terms of handling and environmental friendliness. "The unique new design makes it easier for our customers to choose the right product, improves user-friendliness, and saves on resources," sums up Krisztián Rada, Head of Automotive Aftermarket Division.
Easy to choose
The new clearly structured design of the labels enables customers to identify all the relevant information at a glance. Colors, images, and pictograms help with orientation. For instance, the quality levels of the products are clearly indicated by the color codes gold, silver, and bronze. The most important information the customer needs to know about the lubricant is given in concise and comprehensible way, such as the viscosity of the product and area of application – for cars, trucks, or tractors.
Easy to use
The new ergonomically shaped bottles are easy to open without tools, fit better in the hand, and are easier for the user to handle. For example, the enlarged opening of the bottle and an optimized neck design allow accurate filling with no drops. Two handles make the 4 and 5-liter bottles more comfortable to carry and facilitate filling. What's more, the new tamper-resistant cap ensures that the bottle has not been opened before and that if FUCHS is written on it, there is FUCHS inside it.
Easy on the environment:
FUCHS has been pursuing its sustainability strategy for almost ten years now, with the objective of carbon neutrality according to the "avoid – reduce – compensate" principle. As such, all FUCHS lubricants in the Group's plants are produced carbon-neutrally. The bottle material of the new small packs consists of up to 30 percent recycled material (PCR) and is 100-percent recyclable. The improved bottle shape of the bottle also makes it possible to pour out even the smallest remaining volume of fluid, allowing complete emptying of the bottles. "Our new small packs are not just intended to be more user-friendly but also contribute to avoiding waste, enable materials to be recycled, and help to reduce carbon footprints. FUCHS will continue to work toward making our packaging continuously more sustainable in the future, too," says Markus Garb, Vice President Sustainability, stating a further objective of the innovation.
The following information material is available online:
FUCHS develops, produces and markets high-grade lubricants and related specialties for virtually all industries and areas of application. The company, which was founded in Mannheim in 1931, employs around 6,000 people worldwide at 58 operating companies. FUCHS is the world's largest independent lubricant manufacturer. The most important markets in terms of sales revenue are Western Europe, Asia and North America.

NielsenIQ Rises to the Omnichannel Measurement Challenge8.12.2021 15:01:00 EET | Press release
The shopper journey continually evolves as consumers have more control over what they do, see, and hear. That means the tools used to measure and analyze sales, market share and consumer behavior must also change. In an environment that continues to experience seismic shifts, measuring when, where and how consumers are buying is imperative. This allows fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers to anticipate trends and react faster to consumers’ needs and expectations. Although the fastest growing channel in Western Europe and North America is online, e-commerce measurement tools are largely fragmented. Users must combine data from multiple sources to get a full picture of the market. NielsenIQ is transforming the FMCG and retail industry with its innovative solutions and precise insights, which offer an integrated, accurate, complete, and more granular view of the offline and online marketplace—making it easier to analyze trends across channels.

Proposed “European AI Act” and “Machinery Product Regulation” Will Hamper Innovation, Stifle Small Businesses and Disrupt Manufacturing, Global Robotics Leaders Warn8.12.2021 15:00:00 EET | Press release
The European Commission’s proposed AI Act and updated regulations on machinery products will cause severe damage to European small businesses, robotics companies and innovation, according to four of the most influential voices in robotics and automation. Together, the International Federation of Robotics, the VDMA Robotics + Automation Association, EUnited Robotics and REInvest Robotics urgently call on European policymakers to revisit and amend the proposals. While all four organizations embrace the European Commission’s vision to maintain safety, protect human rights and create a harmonized framework for artificial intelligence and robotics, the collective sees the following primary issues with the proposed regulations as currently drafted: The mandatory third-party certification requirements will slow tech innovation across Europe. The restrictions will hinder artificial intelligence adoption and put European companies, especially SMEs and startups, at a competitive disadvantage glo

Aleph Farms and WACKER Develop Open Supply Chain Solution for Proteins Used in Large-Scale Production of Cultivated Meat8.12.2021 14:09:00 EET | Press release
Aleph Farms, the first cultivated meat company to grow steaks directly from non-genetically engineered animal cells and WACKER, a supplier of leading protein production technologies, today announced the development of streamlined production processes for essential growth medium proteins to cost-effectively grow cultivated meat. These proteins, central to promoting and supporting cell growth, are not widely available in the market today and represent one of the most prohibitive expenses in scaling up cultivated meat. The agreement between WACKER and Aleph Farms is non-exclusive, meaning any cultivated meat company will be able to obtain these same affordable proteins, without using fetal bovine serum (FBS) or animal-derived ingredients. This open supply chain solution is expected to enable the industry to scale and achieve price-parity faster, eliminating a key hurdle in the commercial viability of cultivated meat. "Bringing down the cost and making suitable raw materials available at t
