RelaDyne Enters Florida Through the Acquisition of Three Major Lubricant Distributors
RelaDyne, one of the nation's leading providers of lubricants, fuel, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), and industrial reliability services, has closed on the acquisitions of Jack Becker Distributors, Inc., Seaboard Neumann, and Flamingo Oil, three of Florida's top distributors offering lubricants, fleet services, equipment, and diesel exhaust fluids. This transaction is a strategic move to expand RelaDyne's geographical footprint and resources into the growing state of Florida.
Founded in 1956, Jack Becker Distributors, Inc. entered the market and has expanded to offer a wide range of branded lubricants to Florida and Southern Georgia. Flamingo Oil started serving the automotive market of Miami, Florida, in 1930, and has since grown to offer a full line of bulk and packaged engine oils as well as a full range of shop equipment solutions and services across the state of Florida. Seaboard Neumann was established in 1997 in Central Florida and has made a few of its own acquisitions, extending its footprint from Central Florida to Tampa.
"This partnership with RelaDyne is a natural next step for Jack Becker and Seaboard," said David Rowland, President of Seaboard Neumann and Jack Becker Distributors. "Our employees are eager for the new capabilities and services that RelaDyne brings along with the opportunity for advancement that wasn't there before. As Jack Becker used to say, 'the only constant is change' - so this change means enhanced offerings for our customers and more opportunities for our valued associates. That's a win-win!"
"Our family and employees are excited about the future as we work with RelaDyne to further grow our business and service to our customers," said Dale Moseley, Jr., Vice President of Flamingo Oil. "Customers have already started welcoming the enhanced branding, technology, and services that RelaDyne immediately brings to the market."
"We are very excited to welcome the associates and customers from Jack Becker, Seaboard, and Flamingo to the RelaDyne team," stated Larry Stoddard, RelaDyne President and CEO. "We will bring the full capabilities of RelaDyne to expand not only the opportunities for our new associates, but a greater breadth of products and services to our new customers. We are also very excited to be entering into the Florida market."
RelaDyne continues to be the "Acquirer of Choice" in the lubricants, fuel, and reliability segments. "The acquisition of Jack Becker, Flamingo Oil, and Seaboard Neumann signifies the capabilities of RelaDyne with the complexities involved in the simultaneous closing of three acquisitions," said RelaDyne CSO Jeff Hart, who leads RelaDyne's M&A activities. "We are continually looking to acquire leading businesses with great people and great customers. Our M&A team at RelaDyne is focused on adding new geography, new capabilities, and more density within our current footprint as we continue to create a national distribution platform."
