You will be given the opportunity to develop further, and we are happy to help in any way. In addition, we offer a workplace where we all respect and appreciate each other.

This is us

BRB started in 1981 as a small company and has since grown into an international organization with over 400 employees at 16 different locations. BRB is a globally operating independent manufacturer of future-oriented lube oil additives, silicones and other specialty chemicals. We serve different sectors such as automotive, personal care, coatings and other industrial applications.


As a subsidiary of PETRONAS, we offer you the best of both worlds – the stability of a large organization and the freedom to act on your ideas, as you would often get with a smaller organization.

Customer focus

You put the customer at the center of everything you do. You ask the right questions to find out the exact need and think along with them. In this way you know how to offer the best solution and you take that extra step. Customer focus is both external (customer) and internal (colleague) oriented.


You always go for the best achievable by looking at what is possible. This is also reflected in our organization. For example, we develop products under our own label in order to meet customer requirements.


You get the freedom to perform your work independently. In addition, we are open to new ideas and in many cases you also get the space to get started with this yourself.

Open communication

We dare to give each other feedback and are also open to feedback from others.


We take action to move forward. You not only respond to current needs and wishes, but also anticipate needs that the customer does not even know exist. That is why we believe it is important that you think outside the box.
