Flyers Energy Moves Into 15 New States With Quick Fuel Pact
AUBURN, Calif. — Flyers Energy is expanding its footprint by completing its acquisition of the Quick Fuel automated fueling network from Milwaukee-based Jacobus Energy.
By adding the 49 Quick Fuel sites — purchased for an undisclosed price — Flyers brings its total number of fueling locations to more than 300.
Jacobus Energy retained ownership of its delivered fuels and heating and cooling services divisions.
The acquired sites make up a network of automated fueling stations in 15 states. The sites are located along major trucking routes throughout the Midwest and southern United States, with concentrations around Milwaukee, Atlanta, Dallas and central Florida.
Flyers hired existing Quick Fuel employees to continue their roles and plans to keep the Quick Fuel name.
"The customer experience won't change," said Flyers Chief Operating Officer Ken Dwelle. "Quick Fuel has a strong regional brand identity and we have plans to expand throughout the country with more automated fueling sites."
Flyers has grown its reach through fuel and lubricant company acquisitions over the last two decades, according to the company.
The Quick Fuel sites are located in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Iowa, Kansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio.
