RelaDyne Acquires Orange Line Oil Company, Inc.
RelaDyne, the nation’s largest lubricant distributor and market leader in fuel, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), and industrial reliability services has acquired Orange Line Oil Company, Inc., a bulk oil wholesaler and distributor serving the southern California region.
Founded in 1970 in Pomona, CA as a wholesale distributor of lubrication products, Orange Line Oil Company has emerged to being one of the largest bulk motor oil distributors in California. This acquisition will expand RelaDyne’s distribution capabilities in the southern California area, increasing route density and automotive focus within the region.
“As we looked out into the future we made the strategic decision to find a likeminded partner to take Orange Line to the next level. Our priority was finding an organization that had the capabilities to expand our distribution and service reach, but more importantly was finding a partner that aligned with our values and one that we knew could provide growth opportunities for our people and our customers that we could not on our own,” said Scott Tredinnick, President and CEO of Orange Line Oil Company. “Over several decades, we have distributed prestigious name brands, including Castrol, Motorcraft, Peak, Phillips 66, Total, and ENEOS. RelaDyne’s own brands, DuraMAX and Drydene, in addition to a combination of other products and services offered, will allow for our loyal customers to receive more options to choose from, as well as attract new customers to our business.”
“The acquisition of Orange Line Oil Company is a tremendous opportunity for RelaDyne’s West Region,” stated Larry Stoddard, President and CEO of RelaDyne. “We are thrilled to welcome Orange Line Oil Company to the RelaDyne family! Effective immediately, we will begin to offer new products and services to Orange Line’s existing customer base, while supporting the remarkable customer service Orange Line has provided to the market for decades.”
RelaDyne continues to be the “Acquirer of Choice” in the lubricants, fuel, and reliability services industry. “Our relationship with Orange Line Oil Company and their leadership team dates back many years and was built on trust and transparency. This acquisition represents the third investment in the state of California in less than two years and continues RelaDyne’s execution of our West Region expansion strategy,” said David Schumacher, RelaDyne VP of Business Development. “The combination provides another avenue for RelaDyne to continue to invest in sustainable growth markets while expanding our existing distribution and reliability services capabilities in one of the largest markets in the country.”
