PetroChoice Acquires Hagan Kennington Oil Co.

PetroChoice announced last Tuesday the acquisition of Hagan Kennington Oil Company in Charlotte, North Carolina. The deal further broadens PetroChoice's distribution reach in North and South Carolina.

"Hagan Kennington is a great company and together we will continue to provide the quality products and high level of service expected by lubricant customers throughout the Carolina Region," said Bob Crouch, Executive Vice President of the PetroChoice Eastern Division.

Located in Gastonia, NC, Hagan Kennington Oil Company has been servicing Western portions of North and South Carolina for over 50 years. The company distributes lubricants, equipment and a wide range of related services to the commercial, automotive, and industrial markets. From its website, Hagan Kennington distributes ExxonMobil and CITGO lubricants.

"Our mission of delivering quality products with great customer service fits really well with PetroChoice's vision," said Grady Kennington. "We are excited for the opportunity to bring our teams together and build on our company's legacy." Mr. Kennington is joining PetroChoice and will lead sales and operations in the Charlotte market.

PetroChoice stated it continues to grow through acquiring best-in-class lubricant distributors that are a strategic fit with its business model, expanding its product and service offering as well as its geographic footprint. This is the 15th acquisition PetroChoice has made since 2008. These include Anderson Lubricants (April 2011), Craft Oil Corporation (December 2012), US Lubes (March 2013), LubriCorp (October 2014), PetroLiance (November 2014), Badger Lubrication Technologies (November 2015) and Universal Lubricats' new oil business (May 2016).
