Zenith Energy acquires 3 fuel storage terminals in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia
Zenith Energy Terminals Holdings LLC announced in early February that it has completed acquisition of the assets of Bulk Terminal Storage from Guttman Realty, which is comprised of three storage terminals in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The acquisition demonstrates Zenith’s continued commitment to strengthening its infrastructure in the Midwest and Marcellus and Utica Shale regions and supporting customers with both conventional and alternative fuel storage needs.
“This acquisition further develops our existing network of terminals in key U.S. markets and enables us to promote growth in alternative fuels, addressing two of Zenith’s strategic priorities,” said Jeff Armstrong, president and CEO of Zenith. “We are excited about expanding our relationship with Guttman Energy, one of our key customers. We look forward to implementing our approach to safety and environmental stewardship at our new terminals and leveraging the new storage capacity to support customers with renewable diesel, biofuel and ethanol storage needs. Further to that effort, we are thrilled to work with our new team members to provide the highest quality of service to our customers in the region.”
Now in its 90th year, Guttman, as part of its strategic growth plan, has entered into a multiterminal agreement with Zenith to strengthen and expand its wholesale and commercial fuel distribution business across its Mid-Atlantic and East Coast marketing area. Alan Guttman, CEO of Guttman, said, “This strategic transaction will allow us to concentrate our sales and marketing efforts through this newly expanded network of terminals.”
The newly acquired terminals in Aurora, Ohio; Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania; and Star City, West Virginia; have an aggregate storage capacity of 560,000 barrels and form a strategic link in Zenith’s asset footprint.
Zenith Energy owns and operates more than 32 million barrels of renewable fuels, crude oil, petroleum products, chemicals and vegetable oil storage across North America, Europe and Latin America through its subsidiaries Zenith International and Zenith U.S.
Guttman Energy was founded in 1931 and is a leading fuels distributor headquartered in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, focused on the marketing and transportation of energy.
