The effective date of the sales is November 1, 2023.
Barrick Enterprises, Inc. is a family owned and operated company specializing in the sale and delivery of wholesale fuel products in the Southeastern Michigan market. The company was founded in 1977 by Robert Barrick. B&R Trucking, Inc. was started in 1989 in order to allow Barrick Enterprises, Inc. to better serve its customers by maintaining a higher level of control of fuel delivery. B&R Trucking operates 14 tankers and employs 20+ drivers with an average of 10 years of fuel delivery experience.
The acquisition of Barrick Enterprises, together with several other previous acquisitions in the region, makes U.S. Petroleum Partners the premier motor fuel supplier representing all major brands throughout Michigan and Ohio.
U.S. Petroleum Partners (USPP) entered the Michigan petroleum market in 2018 with the acquisition of Knight Enterprises (including the petroleum terminal in Novi). Expanding on its presence in the regions, USPP purchased the wholesale assets of Tri-Lakes Petroleum, LLC. This transaction, which closed in December 2020, further utilized USPP’s existing pipeline terminal, and dealer portfolio in southwest Michigan and northern Ohio. Following the Tri-Lakes acquisition, USPP further grew its presence in the region when, earlier this year, it added Oakland County Fuels to the USPP portfolio of companies.
USPP focuses on simplifying fuel supply for retailers, wholesalers, governmental entities, as well as commercial, farm and residential customers.
Robert Barrick advised Barrick Enterprises customers that they will continue to work with the same staff as the Barrick employees will stay on with USPP in both the Royal Oak office and the Taylor truck yard.
