Jay Gress, Inc. Acquisition Announcement
Friday June 20, 2014
I am pleased to announce that PPC Lubricants has acquired the Lubricants division of Jay Gress, Inc. A family owned and operated business since 1933 in Southeastern PA. They are a heritage Shell, Pennzoil and Quaker State distributor and have marketed those brands with pride. The philosophy of the Jay Gress family and the culture that they created and fostered over the years fits perfectly with the culture at PPC Lubricants. We welcome the Jay Gress employees and customers to the PPC family and will continue to offer the highest quality products and a dedication to service and partnership to all Jay Gress customers.
This is an exciting opportunity for PPC to solidify our position in Eastern PA, New Jersey, and the Eastern Shores of MD and Delaware. Having a larger footprint in these markets will also give us greater flexibility and logistical solutions servicing the Automotive, Commercial On and Off Road, Agriculture and Industrial markets in addition to our existing customer base while providing enhanced opportunities and resources to bring new business opportunities to PPC Lubricants.
