NOCO acquires warehouse facilities of Windward Petroleum Distribution
NOCO Distribution, LLC, a wholly owned business unit of NOCO Inc., announced today that it has acquired three lubricant distribution warehouses, located in Youngwood, Erie, and Ridgeway, Pennsylvania from Windward Petroleum, Inc. Customers in Western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia are served from the facilities. All former Windward employees have joined the NOCO Distribution team.
“This acquisition is strategically important to NOCO as our lubricant distribution footprint now extends from Ottawa, Ontario in the North, Pittsburgh in the South, Buffalo in the West, and Vermont in the East,” said James D. Newman, President of NOCO Energy Corp. “We look forward to providing our new customers with the outstanding service and products NOCO has been known for since its inception in 1933.”
NOCO offers a wide range of passenger vehicle, commercial vehicle, and industrial lubricants, including Exxon Mobil, Petro Can, and its own private trade label. The company intends to expand its fuels, natural gas and electric, and recovery services offerings in the newly acquired geography along with the established lubricants business.
“We are thrilled with the opportunities this acquisition gives our business and look forward to providing outstanding products and service as we grow and expand our market share in the United States and Canada,” said Fred Giese, General Manager, NOCO Distribution, LLC.
