Customer solutions centres

Research and Technology

Houghton Research and Technology develops advanced fluid technologies that enable our customers to improve profitability and product quality while minimising risks in manufacturing operations. We achieve our mission by maintaining a strategic focus on innovation, knowledge and efficiency in scientific discovery and application.

Process Optimisation

The acquisition of production machines means high investment costs. Often, it is possible to optimize production processes using applied processing fluids rather than altering or replacing a historically grown infrastructure in the area of the machine park or equipment. Houghton optimizes your manufacturing process together with you.

Increase Productivity

Together with our customers and all stakeholders, we research and develop high-tec products, help with appropriate equipment and comprehensive fluid care services to increase your competitiveness and reduce costs. Our Customer Solutions Centres in Dortmund, Turin, Manchester, Barcelona and Rouen are therefore an essential element for success.
