Development of the machine industry is unthinkable apart from the development of the lubricating oil industry. Especially, the more new mechanical products are developed, the greater the interest in the development of the lubricating oil industry becomes.
In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the lubricating oil industry was established in the latter half of the 1990s when the economic situation was very difficult.
The great leader Kim Jong Il chose the site of the Chonji Lubricant Factory and gave precious instructions on its development tens of times till the last period of his life.
The change of the factory built into a comprehensive lubricant producer is unthinkable apart from the leadership of the respected Kim Jong Un.
On the early morning of December 29, Juche 100 (2011), Kim Jong Un learned about the factory and took all necessary measures. Afterwards, too, he indicated a specific orientation and ways to develop the factory on several occasions.
In 17 years after its establishment, the variety of goods and productivity of the factory increased 13 times and 3.9 times each and its technical force 2.5 times as against the time of its inauguration.
Most of the technicians of the factory are in their 20s and 30s. They have completed the control program according to the actual conditions to establish the computer integrated manufacture system. They have also pushed ahead with the research for localization of the raw materials and development of new products to greatly improve their quality.
On August 4, Juche 103 (2014) Kim Jong Un visited the factory and highly praised it as a factory whose production processes have been put on an automatic, IT and unmanned basis and as a digitized factory which has perfectly realized the computer integrated manufacture system.
He looked round different places of the factory to learn in detail about the technical specifications of the production processes and the production of goods. And he underlined the need to update the technical indexes of lubricant and grease produced at the factory constantly enough to have international competitive power.
Later, the factory made redoubled efforts and achieved many successes one after another.
The employees of the factory are now working hard to hit a higher target, keeping deep in their hearts the noble intention of Kim Jong Un wishing them to actively contribute to developing the national economy with great achievements in the production of lubricant.
