Taylor-based Atlas Oil Co. expanded its distribution services in Colorado with the acquisition of a 6.8-acre facility in Fort Lupton, Colo., that provides services like frac and rig fueling, lubricants, and automated fueling.
“We have an aggressive growth plan for 2019 and view this property as an investment in our future,” says Sam Simon, chairman of Atlas Oil. “The timing of this expansion is consistent with our strategy to continuously transform our business model and strengthen our value proposition.”
The facility is more than six times the size of Atlas’ prior space in Evans, Colo., and will be able to accommodate hundreds of new team members. Additional office space, fuel and lubricant storage, and dedicated product packaging areas will allow Atlas to scale its commercial and transportation sectors in this market. Lubricants, DEF, and fleet fueling are a few of the many new lines of business regional customers can expect, in addition to sustained frac growth.
“The impact of this expansion within the region will be immediate,” says Michael Meredith, president of frac and rig fueling for Atlas. “We see an immense opportunity in the Niobrara-DJ Basin and have an unfaltering commitment to our customers in this market.”
The property is centrally located between key supply plants and customer locations, allowing efficient order fulfillment. The new facility also is adjacent to US-85 with controlled access to the highway, allowing Atlas vehicles to quickly and safely merge in route for delivery.
Atlas recently completed an expansion at its Victoria, Texas facility and now has more than 20 terminals across the country to service its nationwide customer base.
