The year 1971 initiated an era of expansion. The acquisition of bulk fuel plants in Courtland, Dixon, Rio Vista, Yuba City, Fairfield, Isleton, Marysville, Clarksburg, Stockton, Lincoln and Woodland enabled the company to better serve its agricultural customer base. In the 80's the company entered joint ventures with Carson Valley Oil in Carson City, Nevada and Ramos/Strong, Inc. of Mojave, CA in Southern California.
... Excellent customer service drives our business!
Along with these acquisitions came the right to distribute virtually every major brand available in California -- Shell, Chevron, Unocal, ARCO, Texaco, Mobil, Tosco, and B.P. Few jobbers offer such a wide range of fuel, lubricants and other products.
During the 1980's the company established cardlock fueling sites to participate as a founding member of the Commercial Fueling Network (CFN). The network enables 24-hour fueling in over 30 states with centralized, detailed billing for truckers and other fleet operators.
