- New sales personnel were added including: outside sales, an inside sales person, and a new lubricants sales manager.
- Jackson moved into the number two slot as one of Brenntag’s largest DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) distributors in North America.
- Jackson Oil & Solvents surpassed its’ largest year of grease sales.
- Our new SmartLogix computerized dispatching and delivery system was implemented.
- The North Webster facility received new & faster pumps that upgraded their capabilities and the off-loading area now provided better spill protection and safer off-loading features, as well.
- Jackson was fortunate to be a part of the I-70/I-65 downtown interstate improvement project which ended with our customer, Milestone, being awarded a significant bonus for finishing early thanks to good coordination and team work in all facets of the job.

- The best single month performance ever and a strong finish to a slow starting year.
- Pacific Pride was introduced with new dispensers and an updated canopy in Greenfield.
- A new Phillips 66 station was added to our partner mix of supplied stores.
- Completion of the Ft. Wayne/Smith Field Airport project (one of our most impressive installations to-date)

- The addition of some very talented new supplier representatives from Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Valvoline, & Marathon.
As Chevron completes and fires up their new basestock plant in Pascagoula, MS, during the 1st quarter of 2014, making them the largest producer of premium product in the world, we are equally fired-up about the opportunity this will bring for our customers. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of knowing you are partnering with the best, and Jackson Oil & Solvents partners with the best suppliers. Whether you’re looking for outstanding premium lubrication and antifreeze products (Chevron), the Cummins Endorsed Valvoline Premium Blue for your heavy-duty engine (Valvoline), the Titanium advantage of Kendall & Guardol (ConocoPhillips), trusted names in premium branded fuels (Phillips 66 & Marathon), or Diesel Exhaust Fluid from the #1 distributor of DEF in the world (Brenntag)….believe it or not, I didn’t mention them all.
From our family to yours, we hope you had a happy holiday and we are looking forward to providing you with great value and service in 2014. Jackson Oil has the products you need.
