Wayne, New Jersey, is the Western Hemisphere headquarters of Castrol, BP’s world-class lubricants brand.
Nearly 300 BP employees and contractors in the state are involved in research, testing, marketing and retailing for one of the most recognized product brands in the world.
The three-story building where employees now work opened in 1986 after Castrol moved its regional headquarters out of New York City. BP acquired Castrol in 2000 and has expanded the facility to keep up with the growth of the business. Today, it employs the largest concentration of BP workers in the eastern U.S.
Wayne is much more than simply a work location for BP and Castrol staff; they play a part in the local community. Team members volunteer time and donate funds to provide meals, clothing and support to a local food bank and homeless shelter, Eva’s Village. Castrol supports St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center with equipment donations, including most recently a simulator that allows surgery patients to practice getting in and out of a car.
Elsewhere in New Jersey, BP has a 25 percent interest in the Carteret terminal through a joint venture with its parter and terminal operator Kinder Morgan. Located in the New York Harbor area, it provides fuel products to the New Jersey/New York region, the largest metropolitan area in the U.S.
