2015 Year in Review

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.

 

From our family to yours, we hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year. We are looking forward to providing you with great value and service in 2016.

 

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.
  • Jackson Oil & Solvents surpassed its’ largest year of grease sales.
  • Ft. Wayne saw the addition of a new loading dock
  • Jackson rallied the fuel team to keep the Nestle plant operating after it lost a cooling tower.
  • The best single month performance ever and a strong start to the year.
  • Pacific Pride was introduced at the newly remodeled Joe’s Junction location at Kentucky & Raymond.
  • Our Deicng Fluid sales set a new record, thanks to the “Snow Team”.
  • Jackson Oil set a new record for equipment & services which continues to be a big differntiator for our business..

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),or a trusted name in premium additized fuel (Howes), we hope you’ll choose Jackson Oil.

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 2015.

Team Kendall’s Racers of the Month

Larry and Phillip Balliet are a father-son truck pulling team from Avilla, Indiana. Collectively, the two have been racing for decades and have a rich history of pulling two- and four-wheeler Chevy trucks. Both are loyal to Kendall Motor Oil, using the product not only for their racing trucks, but also on the farm for their tractors. With that said, we are very excited to share that Larry and Phillip were named Team Kendall’s Racers of the month for September!

The two pride themselves on building great racing vehicles and note that Kendall Motor Oil has been a huge help protecting their engines for many years.

“We’re like the David of David & Goliath in most of these races,” said Phillip. “We don’t have a team that makes our trucks run well. We are our own team. We build our trucks and engines with our own hands and rely on good products to keep our trucks running. It’s great to win against other racers who aren’t as directly involved in their vehicles as us!”

They’re both excited to be representing Kendall Motor Oil in the pulling category of motorsports.

“Everyone knows Kendall, and it’s great to be associated with such a well-known sponsor in this unique type of racing,” said Larry.

The two have been raking in truck-pulling championships for years and Phillip’s biggest accomplishment to date is being named Hoosier State Puller Champion.

“I love racing,” said Phillip. “There is nothing better than getting pulled off the track and having a little kid come running up from the stands wanting to get your autograph.”

Marketer Shawn Kem of Jackson Oil & Solvents said, “Over the years, the Balliets have been loyal customers to us and that loyalty holds true to Kendall Motor Oil as well. In fact, they purchase Kendall Motor Oil products nearly every time they visit our local store! We were happy to get the Balliet family on board with Team Kendall and have enjoyed hearing of their successes in truck pulling. They’ve brought good business to our store and we are extremely proud to serve as a resource for their team.”

Looking ahead, Larry and Phillip are hoping to race more in the Grand National circuit and land the Grand National Champion title. We congratulate them both on being named Team Kendall’s September Racers of the Month!
