Atlas Oil Co., a fuel supply, logistics, and services company based in Taylor, has acquired the Dennis Trigg portfolio of business in the greater Houston area as part of the company’s growth strategy for the next two years.
Through the acquisition, Atlas will gain more than 80 fuel customers, including traditional delivered-in commercial and retail business as well as rack sales and contracted customers with a current consumption volume of 50 million gallons per year.
“Atlas Oil Company is driven by personalized client relationships, like the ones Dennis Trigg has built in Houston, so we take our commitment to ensuring a seamless transition for these clients very seriously,” says Sam Simon, chairman and CEO of Atlas Oil. “We will leverage our technology and national industry experience to continue to deliver the meaningful and measurable value they receive.”
Dennis Trigg will continue to serve as a consultant for Atlas, and his daughter, Terry Moyers, will join the company as a senior account manager.
“Atlas Oil Co. maintains a substantial supply portfolio, including relationships with all of the suppliers in the market, supply contracts, carrier relationships, and inventory — with this comes the ability to offer the flexible contracts my customers need,” Trigg says. “I am confident that this new arrangement will benefit us all.”
Atlas Oil Co. is licensed to operate in 30 states with plans to increase that number to 50 by the end of the year, Simon says. “As Atlas Oil continues to expand our reach and progress toward our ambitious growth goals, many relationship-driven acquisitions like this will follow,” he says.
