LAAPSA was founded in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1988 with the scope to produce industrial lubricants of maximum quality, efficiency and performance focusing on the global market. Under this conception, the Company expanded and in 1991 it was settled in the city of Caseros, province of Buenos Aires. Due to its growth in international trade, in 2000 the Company incorporated the 2500m2-manufacturing plant located in the city of Bernal, jointly working in local business units as well as in products for the export market.

The constant and increasing demand of the local market, subsidiaries and distributors worldwide enabled the acquisition of the current industrial plant in 2013.

Situated in the Industrial park of Tigre, at only 35 kilometers from Buenos Aires and covering 13.000 square meters, it places LAAPSA as the greatest national producer of special lubricants and an international reference on new technologies for industrial lubrication.
