ORourke Petroleum Products and Solutions announced this month its acquisition of oil jobber Commercial Lubricants Dallas division. The deal comes 11 years after ORourke bought Commercials Houston operations.
These deals were both with the same company, but we made them for two different reasons, ORourke President and Chief Operating Officer Mushahid Khan said. We bought the Houston business in 95 because they had a few key accounts that we wanted. In the case of [the Dallas division], it is part of our strategy to become a regional company.
