PetroChoice opens new distribution center in Texas

PetroChoice, a leading provider of lubrication solutions, announced the opening of its newest location in Lamesa, Texas, U.S.A. The new facility is the 52nd location for PetroChoice and will serve as a distribution center for Western Texas and Eastern New Mexico.

Building on PetroChoice’s expansion from the acquisition of Universal Lubricants last year, the Lamesa location solidifies the PetroChoice footprint in Western Texas. This location will enhance service to the Permian Basin region, a large oil and natural gas producing area, as well as accommodate future growth.

“The Lamesa expansion is a key step in PetroChoice’s continued growth strategy and we are one of the few lubricant distributors investing in new greenfield locations to support current and future customers,” says Rick Palmore, regional vice president of PetroChoice’s Western Region. “Our Lamesa branch will carry a full line of high-quality products to serve the industrial, commercial and automotive businesses.”

“Expanding our footprint allows us to further serve a new audience in this area and offer an unparalleled level of sales, service and distribution capabilities,” Palmore said.

“PetroChoice is committed to putting our customers first, driving improvements in the way we deliver products and services,” says Gary Shaffer, operations vice president of the Western Division. “This is the ideal location to better provide our comprehensive programs to the West Texas market.โ€
