Roberts Energy, which became a CITGO distributor in 2017, made the decision to divest of this business unit to focus its efforts on its core business lines, which have seen dramatic growth over the past few years.
This was a strategic decision by the Roberts Energy team as they continue to grow their commercial fuels business, which includes diesel, gasoline, heating oil, DEF, and Brown Bear Transportation, its common carrier business.
“Our lubricant customers will be in great hands with Dennison. We have known the Dennison family for years, and feel as though they treat their customers with the care and respect that meets our high standards. With their additional compliment of brands and products and large service network, they will continue to create value for our customers who we care so much about”, said Frank Roberts, President of Roberts Energy.
The transaction was completed on May 20th, 2020. Roberts will continue to supply diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to all of its customers as the product was not part of this transaction.
