Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
Arcis Resources Corporation (“Arcis”) (OTCBB: ARCS) and General Oil Co., Inc. (“General”) have executed a joint venture agreement to capitalize on petrochemical sourcing, sales, distribution and byproduct reuse opportunities in the US, Latin American, Caribbean, N. African, and Saudi Arabian markets. Operating through a newly formed JV company, ARGEN, the partnership will begin leveraging the product sourcing, logistics, finance, and distribution operations of both Arcis and General for the purpose of entering into long term supply and sales contracts with suppliers and producers of petrochemical products and byproducts in their respective markets.
"We are very excited about our new relationship with General Oil and look forward to a long partnership. By leveraging our respective expertise, market knowledge, and resources, General Oil and Arcis benefit from the creation of a robust international footprint enabling both companies to penetrate new and lucrative markets and product lines. Arcis’ expertise in petroleum byproduct material sourcing, including Crude Oil, Asphalt, and Residual Oils in the US and General’s distribution strength in those markets in the Latin American, N. African, and Caribbean markets were a natural fit. From there, both Daniel [Mr. Daniel Gallardo, CEO, General Oil] and I immediately recognized the enormous opportunities available if we worked together,” stated Mr. Robert Di Marco, EVP of Arcis Resources Corp.
"Our new relationship with General validates our view that the petroleum marketing and the byproduct management markets are going to continue to see strong growth as companies seek ways to reduce their waste footprint, and seek alternate stable sources of product.", commented Mr. Trevis Lyon, President of Arcis Resources Corporation.
Over the course of the next several years, Mr. Di Marco and Mr. Gallardo are committed to exploring “Green” reuse opportunities in which the two companies can leverage their resources, market expertise and network to take advantage of this market. Mr. Di Marco expects ARGEN to start contributing to both Arcis’ and General’s financial results in a significant way during the next 12 months.
