2015 goes down in the record books as our best yet in terms of each of our company segments performing at a high level. Crude prices fell to their lowest levels since the financial crisis which produced lower prices for our customers and lowered delivery expenses for our company. A tragic event reminded us that maintaining a safe work environment requires continuous focus and effort. Here are some of the positive changes that occurred throughout the year.
New transportation professionals were hired to expand our reach and capabilities.
Remodeling and repairs were performed on our “flagship” building.
Wayne saw the addition of new entrance gates and a card system for after-hour entry and additional repairs were made to the stair well and roof.
Jackson grew the DEF business by an additional 25% and maintained the number one slot as Brenntag’s largest DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) distributor in North America for much of 2015.
The best single month performance ever.
The Joe’s Junction location at Kentucky & Raymond opened and expanded their inside and outside offerings.
Jackson Oil & Solvents surpassed its’ largest year of grease sales.
Jackson Oil set a new record for equipment & services including our biggest installation ever at Celadon Trucking.
Jackson Oil & Solvents was able to reward our employees for jobs well done.
Whether you’re looking for increased equipment life through filtered fuel and lubricants, 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), or a trusted name in premium additized fuel (Howes), we hope you’ll choose Jackson Oil.

2014 Year In Review
2014 was a year filled with challenges, and continued improvements. We started the year with a tragic event when two of our colleagues were involved in a serious accident resulting in one of them losing their life. All great companies are made up of great people, and ours’ rallied in support of one another. While we continued to move forward, the loss was certainly felt throughout the company. Here are some of the positive changes that occurred throughout the year.
New sales personnel were added to outside sales.
Jackson moved into the number one slot as Brenntag’s largest DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) distributors in North America for the month of October just missing the mark for the entire year. We’ve also expanded our capabities by adding a second DEF tank wagon to the fleet.

Ft. Wayne saw the addition of a new loading dock

Having trouble with DEF supply issues? It is our understanding that there are supply issues in the marketplace with regard to Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). Because of our local supplier we are not experiencing any issues with obtaining product. We know the pain associated with not having product when it is needed. It could lead to unscheduled equipment downtime. If you are in need of DEF, call your sales consultant today.
Package Size: We are able to supply 2.5 gallon jugs, drums, totes, and bulk product at a competitive price. (The picture below shows one of our stainless steel tank wagons solely used to deliver DEF. There are only a few like them, dedicated for such!)
Equipment: Jackson Oil & Solvents has solutions for storing and transporting the product to the DEF tank whether the equipment is in a service bay or out in the field.
Cleanliness is next to…
Jackson Oil & Solvents, Inc. has partnered with the Brenntag/TerraCair brand of DEF because we understand the importance of a quality product. Brenntag offers its customers a closed DEF system to control and manage product quality. Closed drums and totes require a MicroMatic coupler on the end of the dispensing hose which will connect to the tote’s MicroMatic valve to prevent contaminants such as dirt, debris and bugs from entering the container…Pure to the Tank.
Jackson Oil Delo Truck Event
Jackson Oil hosted the Chevron Delo Truck on Friday, September 19th. The state-of-the-art interior experience offered lots of attention-drawing features including:
Nineteen interactive educational stations including touch screen videos and product presentations.
Detroit Diesel cut-away engine to illustrate latest in technology.
A video booth to capture and share visitors’ Delo experience.
The interactive truck was a great way to showcase premium Delo engine oils, lubricants, and coolants. The truck started an open dialog between the customers and their salesman. After the customers were done touring the truck, the salesman took them through our other 6 booths. The booths were Fuel Polishing, Racing, DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid), Equipment/FuelMaster, Polaris – oil/lubricant analysis, and Palmer Trucks.
The Fuel Polishing/Filtering booth was led by Mike Klepfer, our fuel filtering guru! He was able to not only talk about the benefits of being on a fuel filtering program, but he was able to show the benefits. He took the customers through the truck and explained how the fuel is transferred from the tank and filtered through from start to finish.
The Racing booth was led by the race master herself, Diane Poff. She explained our racing program and our race sponsorship (find out more here: http://jacksonoilsolvents.com/services/24-hour-race-station/). Also, she was able to showcase our full line of VP Racing Products and our 24-hour Race Station.
The DEF booth was led by Keith Huff, the creator of DEF-Depot. Keith went through the importance of being pure to the tank by showing the customers how we are able to keep the product pure. To watch a short video on DEF visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvU-uE_h7HM. To learn more about DEF-Depot visit: www.def-depot.com.
The equipment booth was led by 3 talented equipment and FuelMaster specialists: Jodie Brill, Randy Collier, and Rob Horton. FuelMaster is an automated fuel management system that can be customized to a customer’s needs; such as smartcard (memory chip card), PROKEE® (memory chip key), credit card reader, keypad only, fleet card, AIM2 passive fueling (radio frequency device inside the vehicle with RFID Tags), mobile fueling for tanker trucks, car wash activation and gate openers just to name a few.
The Fluid Analysis booth was held down by Christine from Polaris Laboratories. She explained an effectively executed fluid analysis program eliminates the guesswork, risk and reactionary nature of your maintenance department. By learning to trust the power of the data, you can save millions of dollars by catching and monitoring problems before they become catastrophes, making unplanned downtime a thing of the past and even reducing the frequency of your current fluid changes.
The final booth we had was Palmer Trucks and the ever so talented salesman John Cummings manned this booth. He also brought a Kenworth tractor to show that in all Kenworth tractors, they are serviced with Chevron Delo XLE 400 10W30. For more information on Palmer Trucks visit: www.palmertrucks.com
Everyone that went to each booth and had their punch cards completed was eligible to be entered into Jackson Oil & Solvents grand prize drawing. The grand prize was a Green Egg Grill and the lucky winner was Mike Chapman from Milestone!
We would like to thank everyone that came to the event and helped make it all possible. Overall we had a great day!
