CLEVELAND, April 22, 2015 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces a five-year
expansion project at the company's Painesville Township, Ohio facility which
will increase capacity and improve site infrastructure. The expansion, which
is estimated to be complete by 2020, will support changing customer needs as
well as position the Painesville Township manufacturing facility to be
successful as a provider of key specialty products and services for Lubrizol
now and into the future.

The expansion investment is estimated at $100 million, and includes the
addition of new manufacturing capacity, updated automated packaging
capabilities, increasing of warehouse space, and improvement of staging and
loading of truck shipments. The expansion will include state-of-the-art bulk
transfer technology which is important to ensure product integrity, and is
expected to reduce in-plant traffic and congestion. Additionally, it will
improve the safety and efficiency of handling product drums and totes.

"The Painesville Township community has been a supportive partner of Lubrizol
since we began our operations there in 1956 and we are pleased to further
reinvest and expand at the location," stated Craig Hupp, Lubrizol Painesville
plant manager. "Through this important initiative, we will be better
positioned to meet the changing demands of our customers, ensure the
integrity and quality of our products, reinforce personal and environmental
safety and attract the workforce talent that is required to run our
operations."

Through a collaborative effort with Lake County Port Authority, Painesville
Township and Lake County Commissioners, Lubrizol obtained beneficial tax
incentives, which were instrumental in the company's decision to proceed with
the expansion. Additionally, through a grant from JobsOhio and refundable
job creation tax credits from the state, Lubrizol expects to add
approximately 25 new jobs at the facility which currently employs more than
300 full-time employees.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the plant earlier today. In attendance
