PetroCard Inc., a commercial fuel distributor headquartered in Kent, Wash., recently acquired the assets of Marc Nelson Oil Products (MNOP), a family-owned fuel and lubricant distributor based in Salem, Ore.
In addition to their Salem operations, Marc Nelson Oil Products operates bulk fuel locations throughout Oregon, including in Hillsboro, Gresham, Canby, and Dallas, in addition to a network of Pacific Pride and CFN commercial “cardlock” fueling stations. MNOP also provides bulk fuel deliveries with a fleet of local delivery trucks, and truck and trailer transports.
MNOP is a distributor of lubricants and operates several facilities, including a large warehouse adjacent to its main office location.
“By adding Marc Nelson Oil Products’ operations to our existing network, we not only offer customers greater access and convenience, but we also strengthen our position as a leading fuel provider in the region,” said Laura Yellig, president and CEO of PetroCard. “PetroCard is well-positioned to support the growing mobility needs of our customers, many of whom are providers of essential goods and services across the Northwest.
“We are thrilled to welcome all of MNOP’s dedicated employees to the PetroCard team, and know that together, we will continue to provide customers with access to quality fuel and lubricant products and solutions that provide long-term value. We continually strive to meet our customers where they are today and to take them where they want to go.”
PetroCard said it will operate the existing MNOP lines of business, fuel locations, and offices under the PetroCard name. Combined, PetroCard customers will have access to a network approaching 100 cardlock stations throughout Washington and Oregon.
The acquisition was finalized Dec. 1.
“MNOP and the Nelson family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers that have supported us over the past 85 years, many whom have been with us for decades,” said Peter Nelson, MNOP president. “We’ve sincerely enjoyed supporting you and your businesses over the years and our employees look forward to continuing to support your fuel and lubricant needs well into the future as part of the expanded PetroCard team.”
