Mort Distributing, Inc., a market leader in the fuel and lubricant business which has servicing operations in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and North and South Dakota, announced today that it has entered into an acquisition agreement with Parkland through its U.S. based subsidiary (“Parkland USA”). Parkland is one of North America and the Caribbean’s fastest growing independent suppliers and marketers of fuel and petroleum products.
Mort Distributing has been in operation since 1958, started by Erle Mort and has grown through three generations; and is headquartered in Glendive, MT. The company is a leading marketer of fuels and lubricants providing services in the retail stores, agriculture, mining, oil field, railroad, and ranching industries. The Mort family is excited to announce today to its employees, customers, and the public of this acquisition.
“Evelyn and I are excited about retirement and knowing our employees are being taken care of by Parkland USA. They will have an opportunity to move up and grow with a larger corporation and our customers will be treated with the same excellent customer service they currently get, which will make retirement better,” said Tim Mort, president of Mort Distributing.
“Mort Distributing is recognized as a leader in the Montana, Wyoming, South and North Dakota areas for its industry knowledge and exceptional service. They have great people and a hard work ethic,” said Dan Dunstan, Vice President and General Manager of the Northern Tier ROC. “We welcome Cole Mort to the leadership team and the rest of the employees into Parkland USA’s Northern Tier Regional Operating Center. We also would like to congratulate Tim and Evelyn Mort on their retirement.”
The acquisition is expected to close on or about the end of the year.
