The number of countries to which Lubas brand products are sold is steadily increasing, and sales are growing every year. The qualities characteristic for Lubas products are uniqueness and utility. With the aim of developing the mining industry in Chile, Lubas rises to the challenge of supplying mines with high quality and long-life products.
