Mansfield Oil Opens Calgary Office
Fuels provider enters market with opening of first operations center in Canada
GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- Mansfield Oil Co. said that it has opened a new marketing office and regional operations center in Calgary, Alberta--its first operations center in Canada. For more than 50 years, Mansfield has served customers in the retail, government and commercial sectors with transportation fuels and fuels services.
"We're excited to announce the opening of our first operations center in Canada," said Mansfield president and COO J. Alexander. "We have many customers who operate in multiple jurisdictions and trust Mansfield as their single source solution for fuel [image-nocss] products and services. The opening of our Calgary office is a response to our current customers' needs as well as an opportunity to serve new customers in the Canadian market."
Many of Mansfield's largest U.S. customers for renewable fuels operate in Canada, including local divisions of all the U.S. major oil companies. In addition to renewable fuels, Mansfield supplies many large corporate accounts that can now utilize Mansfield's full range of solutions in Canada.
Tom Warman, director of fuel procurement for FirstGroup America, said, "We are delighted to hear that Mansfield is opening an office in Calgary. Mansfield brings new competition into the marketplace, allowing us to leverage scale across North America. As North America's leading transport operator, FirstGroup America relies on Mansfield to provide comprehensive services including bulk fuel delivery, diesel exhaust fluid, mobile refueling, tank installations and environmental compliance, maintenance and inventory management services. With an operational office in Calgary, Mansfield has the ability to offer their services in yet another market for FirstGroup America."
Mansfield Canada officially debuted June 22, with an open house.
Greg Kary, general manager for Canada, who will lead the Calgary team, said, "This opening affords Mansfield the opportunity to interact more closely with leaders in the Canadian energy industry. The company currently sells refined petroleum products, biofuels and fuel management services throughout Canada and having a local office was crucial to our success moving forward. With Mansfield's recent entry into the compressed natural gas sector, CNG will also become a major factor in our Canadian offerings. We look forward to developing business around this exciting new product line."
