Lakewood, WA (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Pettit Oil Company is pleased to announce it is acquiring the heating oil and commercial fuel and lubricants distribution assets held within PNEC Corporation which does business as SC Fuels, headquartered in Tacoma, WA. This acquisition also includes PNEC distribution facilities in Bremerton and Everett, WA. The transaction is scheduled to close on February 15, 2013. Terms were not disclosed.
According to Pettit Oil President Jim Tener, “This move significantly expands our company’s footprint within Western Washington, especially in the Puget Sound, and Olympic and Kitsap Peninsulas. Our geographic coverage, array of services, and customer-focused culture is unrivaled within these markets.”
According to SC Fuels' Chief Operating Officer Steven Greinke, “The decision to sell PNEC fits within our larger plan to strategically reposition our company. However, the decision is not taken lightly by our family. Since taking ownership of the company in 1997, PNEC has been a successful business for SC Fuels. This achievement would not have been possible without the strategic focus, hard work, and dedication of PNEC’s outstanding management and employees.”
