Quarles Petroleum, Inc., a regional provider of residential and commercial fuel headquartered in Fredericksburg, Virginia, has signed a purchase agreement to acquire Revere Gas, a third generation, family-owned retail propane gas distributor based in Hartfield, Virginia. The purchase is expected to close by the end of the year.
“The Revere Gas delivery area complements our existing delivery territory in central Virginia and expands our presence in eastern Virginia” commented Paul Giambra, CEO of Quarles Petroleum. “As family-owned businesses our companies share the same core values of providing superior service to our customers and giving back to the communities we serve. We look forward to welcoming Revere customers to Quarles, and pledge to deliver the same high caliber of customer service they’ve come to expect.”
One of the largest retail propane distributors in the state of Virginia, Revere Gas was established in 1942 by H.L. Revere to meet the increased demand for locally provided, clean energy. Today, Revere serves over 25,000 residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial and governmental customers from field offices in Burgess, Fredericksburg, Gloucester, Hartfield, Oilville/Richmond, Providence Forge, Warsaw and Williamsburg and a rail terminal in West Point, Virginia.
“Our customers and team members will be in great hands,” said Carlton Revere, the president and CEO of Revere Gas. “We have been blessed as our business has grown and thrived over three generations based on providing our customers great service at a competitive price. I am pleased that we are able to transition our customers to a company that shares our values and commitment.” The Revere family will retain ownership of their Hartfield headquarters building to support their other family business ventures.
In addition to its fuel sales, Quarles is a full-line distributor of Shell®, DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid), and lubricant products, and offers customer support programs including fuel and lubricant dispensing equipment.
