“We are pleased to welcome O’Rourke Petroleum to the Mansfield family,” said Michael Mansfield, CEO of Mansfield Energy. “We’re excited to work alongside the O’Rourke team and for the competitive advantage this deal affords both companies.”
Founded in 1932, O’Rourke is a nationally recognized, full-service lubricant and fuels distributor supplying more than 200 million gallons of fuel and 6 million gallons of lubricants annually, the company said.
“Much like Mansfield, O’Rourke is a family-owned business with a legacy of success,” Mansfield said. “O’Rourke is proud of its culture of building meaningful, long-term relationships, and we'll do everything possible to continue this 86-year-old tradition.
“By uniting our ideas and expertise, we will offer a broader array of business solutions for customers in Texas and elsewhere.”
With a fleet of 180 vehicles, O’Rourke serves customers throughout the US Gulf Coast region with products ranging from gasoline, diesel fuel, marine fuels, lubricants and DEF products, to fleet card services, and equipment and environmental solutions.
O’Rourke is among a limited number of distributors who’ve earned Shell Lubricants’ “Alliance” class designation in the industrial, transport and consumer market segments.
“I appreciate Michael’s commitment to culture and operating the business using a long-term perspective,” said Dennis O’Rourke, O’Rourke’s chief executive officer. “It’s important to me our employees can continue to be part of a family-owned business operation.
“Going forward, we will operate under the O’Rourke brand with our current leadership team in place. All of our 300 team members will be retained to ensure a seamless transition and ongoing service quality to our valued customers. We look forward to the new opportunities this relationship offers and are optimistic for the future.”
