Our Short, But Long History

In 2008 four well-established, industry-leading lubricant distribution and related services companies were introduced to each other to create a strategy that would transform how to solve specific unmet customer needs to improve the return on assets of their machines, trucks and vehicles. With over 225 years of collective industry experience, their objective was to test the market for a new customer value proposition by cross-selling into new market segments and together developing new product and services growth opportunities to prove the sum of the parts was far more valuable than the ability to grow on their own.  On November 4, 2010 these four businesses, namely: Mid-Town Petroleum, Inc. (Bridgeview, Illinois); Oil Distributing Company (Cincinnati, Ohio); The Hurt Company, Inc. (Houston, Texas), and Pumpelly Oil Company (Sulphur, Louisiana) joined forces to form RelaDyne.

RelaDyne has continued to expand its footprint with the acquisitions of Derrick Oil & Supply and Craft Oil in Port Arthur, Texas; Hill Oil Company in Farmerville, Louisiana; Newcomb Oil lubricant business in Bardstown, Kentucky; and Maxum Petroleum’s Great Lakes lubricant and bobtail business in Chesterton, Indiana (formerly Paulson Oil Company).  

The RelaDyne footprint is strategically located along the central corridor of the US, an area that represents more than 50 percent of the US lubricant market and collectively has had a rich history of building long-term, mutually profitable client relationships.  Each of the businesses had become best-in-class lubrications experts by listening to customer needs and providing solutions to make their business operations more reliable, productive, and profitable—the foundation upon which RelaDyne is built.
