The very first Cimcool R&D centre was established in Cincinnati, Ohio in the US. It was here that the world’s first synthetic metalworking fluid was developed and produced in the 1940s.
R&D facilities Europe
Metalworking fluid development and sales progressed rapidly in Europe. The R&D facilities in the European headquarters in Vlaardingen, The Netherlands grew along with it, turning it into the state-of-the-art laboratory it is today.
