Halco Lubricants Joins Forces With Pugh Lubricants, Apollo Oil and Veterans Oil
9 January 2019
Pugh Lubricants, Apollo Oil, and Veteran's Oil ("Pugh-Apollo-Veterans") joined to become a leading distributor of lubricants, fuel, antifreeze, and diesel exhaust fluid in 2017. In December 2018, Pugh-Apollo-Veterans acquired Norcross, GA based Halco Lubricants, a well-established regional distributor of lubricants covering GA, SC, and portions of NC from locations in Norcross, GA; Augusta, GA; and Columbia, SC. This marks the third combination for Pugh Lubricants in the last two years and furthers its strategy of adding leading brands and prominent distributors to the company.
"We look forward to working with the Parkers and the rest of the Halco organization to build on the strong foundation they have created. This partnership reinforces our position as a best-in-class organization for customers, suppliers, and employees," said Mike Pugh, President of Pugh-Apollo-Veterans.
Alan Parker, President of Halco Lubricants, said, "We are excited about the opportunities for growth provided by joining the Pugh-Apollo-Veterans team. Our combined resources and experience will allow us to enhance our service and offerings to our customers, create improved alignment with our suppliers, and offer our employees career and professional development opportunities."
