In April 2023, RelaDyne announced the partnership with Sun Coast Resources (“Sun Coast”), one of the nation’s preeminent leaders in fuel, lubricants, DEF distribution and emergency response solutions.
Sun Coast, established in 1985, is based in Houston, Texas and is one of the nation’s premier fuel and lubricant distributors. Sun Coast also has a significant presence in transportation services capable of delivering end-to-end solutions across a broad range of customers and industries including emergency and logistics services across the United States. The combination presents RelaDyne’s customers with new service offerings across a national footprint and provides Sun Coast’s customers with access to RelaDyne’s expanded distribution footprint, robust product portfolio, and industrial reliability services.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Sun Coast and are excited to welcome the Sun Coast employees to the RelaDyne family. We are thrilled to have both Kathy Lehne, Sun Coast’s founder and CEO, and Kyle Lehne, Sun Coast’s Chief Business Development Officer, as part of our combined company’s senior management team,” said Larry Stoddard, President and CEO of RelaDyne. “Sun Coast’s distribution capabilities in Texas and the Gulf Coast region focused on fuel, lubricants, DEF, and emergency response solutions along with its freight and logistics services reach across the entire nation and are highly complementary and significantly expand RelaDyne’s existing automotive, commercial, and industrial go-to-market strategy. This partnership is incredibly exciting for our business and will allow us to surround our customers with more comprehensive products and services than ever before.”
“We could not be more excited to partner with RelaDyne,” said Kathy Lehne, Founder & CEO of Sun Coast Resources. “We have known RelaDyne and their management team for many years and have been impressed with their growth, but what was critically important to us was that Sun Coast’s principles and core values aligned with those of RelaDyne. The combination of RelaDyne’s products and services with Sun Coast’s market position and logistics capabilities will greatly enhance our growth and cement us as the market leader.”
Kyle Lehne, Chief Business Development Officer of Sun Coast Resources added, “The strength and backing of RelaDyne, including joining their Industrial Reliability Services with our Logistics Services, will greatly expand an already extensive services portfolio and provide an unmatched customer solution in the industry.”
