Atlas Oil Deploys Its Largest-Ever Emergency Fueling Operation
TAYLOR, Mich. — Atlas Oil Co. is deploying its largest-ever emergency fueling operation in the company’s 32-year history.
The Michigan-based company deployed 79 trucks and drivers to regions affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma to support private and public sector organizations in need of emergency fuel.
At one point, 31 percent of the nation's refining capacity was shut-in after Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on Texas' coast, causing fuel shortages that Atlas was able to supplement with its nationwide network, the company stated. Atlas Oil has been working around the clock to secure product from other markets and safely deliver emergency fuel to our contracted fuel assurance customers, it added.
"Fuel is a necessity for first responders, military and other agencies to begin the relief and restoration of areas affected by Harvey and Irma," said Atlas Oil President and COO Bob Kenyon. "We're proud of the work our drivers and emergency response team members have done to make this historic dual deployment possible."
Taylor-based Atlas Oil offers single source solutions for fuel, transportation and logistics and distributes more than a billion gallons of fuel annually to customers in 46 states.
