RelaDyne Acquires Newcomb Oil Lubricant Division
Newcomb Oil Co. announced the sale of its lubricants business division located at 601 Wilson Boulevard, Bardstown, Kentucky, to RelaDyne, Cincinnati, Ohio.
RelaDyne is one of the largest providers of integrated equipment and lubrication reliability for the industrial, commercial, and automotive businesses in the United States.
RelaDyne has acquired only the lubricants division of Newcomb Oil Co. The deal was effective December 31, 2012. Newcomb Oil will continue to operate FiveStar Food Marts in Kentucky and Indiana along with providing quality fuel products for residential home heat, commercial, industrial, and agriculture customers. RelaDyne will lease the facility in Wilson Industrial Park. Existing Newcomb Oil Co. employees at this facility have joined the RelaDyne team.
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, RelaDyne is a United States leader in lubricants, Diesel Exhaust Fluid, and reliability services. Combined, the RelaDyne companies have more than 275 years of industry experience. The initial RelaDyne sales, distribution and services platform is strategically located within the central corridor of the United States, an area that accounts for approximately 50 percent of the U.S. lubricant market.
RelaDyne plans to integrate the Bardstown facility into a broader distribution network structure. As a result, the addition of new products and services and a broader geographic footprint will allow even better service in the future.
