Noria news wires

PetroChoice recently announced that it has acquired the lubricant business of Commercial Distributing Inc. (CDi). Headquartered in Oklahoma City, CDi has been a distributor of lubricants in Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas, specializing in the automotive market. The company will begin operating immediately as PetroChoice.

"I am pleased that PetroChoice is as dedicated to fostering the growth of my business for my employees and customers as I was,” said Michael Barcum, president of CDi. “I identified technology in distribution methods as being important in my vision for our regional distribution effort and the future of this industry, and PetroChoice is at the forefront of these endeavors."

Barcum will join the PetroChoice CEO Strategy Council, which is an advisory board that provides ideas, support and contacts to PetroChoice’s leadership team. Other members of the team include leaders from former PetroChoice acquisitions, such as Steve King (Anderson Lubricants), Ross Smith (Miller Industrial Fluids), Rick Palmore (Universal Lubricants) and Mike Foltz (LubriCorp).

"We welcome CDi's associates and customers to PetroChoice," said Celeste Mastin, PetroChoice CEO. "PetroChoice currently services customers in this footprint, and the addition of CDi locations will prove beneficial to our commitment to anticipate and meet our customers' needs."
