Automotive Supplier Calls Burlington one of Canada’s Leading Modern Cities

KSL Lubricants Inc. researches, develops and manufactures lubricants for the automotive industry. They chose Burlington for their headquarters, production facility and laboratory because they found it to be the perfect hub for supplying clients in southwestern Ontario.

KSL believes Burlington to be one of the leading modern cities in Canada, citing our planned growth, sense of community, and exceptional urban to rural mix (more than half our city is greenbelt) as distinguishing factors that separate us from our neighbours.

KSL partners with nearby McMaster University’s Mechanical Research Institute on next generation, environmentally-friendly lubricants. The company has also experienced an excellent employee retention rate, noting not only job satisfaction and shorter commute times as reasons, but that their workers take pride in all the amenities the city has to offer, from a unique downtown waterfront to attractions unlike any others found in the country.

The company is now in its fifteen year of operation in Burlington.

“Burlington has an eclectic range of businesses and experienced business people who enhance and promote the city’s reputation for commerce. It also has a remarkable sense of small town charm.”
