Pugh-Apollo-Veterans recently announced that it has acquired Halco Lubricants, a regional distributor of finished lubricants, antifreeze and other product lines. Based in Norcross, Georgia, Halco distributes its products throughout Georgia, South Carolina and portions of Alabama and North Carolina.
"We look forward to working with the Parkers and the rest of the Halco organization to build on the strong foundation they have created," said Mike Pugh, president of Pugh-Apollo-Veterans. "This partnership reinforces our position as a best-in-class organization for customers, suppliers and employees."
This latest partnership marks the third combination for Pugh Lubricants in the last two years and furthers its strategy of adding leading brands and prominent distributors. In 2017, Pugh Lubricants, Apollo Oil and Veteran’s Oil joined forces to become Pugh-Apollo-Veterans, a leading distributor of lubricants, fuel, antifreeze and diesel exhaust fluid throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Georgia, Alabama and portions of Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Illinois and Indiana.
"We are excited about the opportunities for growth provided by joining the Pugh-Apollo-Veterans team," said Alan Parker, president of Halco Lubricants. "Our combined resources and experience will allow us to enhance our service and offerings to our customers, create improved alignment with our suppliers, and offer our employees career and professional development opportunities."
