Oscar W. Larson Company becomes Leighton O’Brien’s newest fuel cleaning distributor

14 February, 2017 – Oscar W. Larson Company (OWL), known for installation, service and equipment distribution with nine branches throughout the Michigan, Ohio, and the Indiana region of the US, and Leighton O’Brien today announced a new distribution agreement for Leighton O’Brien’s patented fuel cleaning and polishing services.

The fuel cleaning and polishing services will officially launch on February 27th. OWL will deliver Leighton O’Brien’s market-leading fuel cleaning and polishing technology to its clients. The service will be conducted by fully trained and safety certified OWL technicians and supported by expert fuel data analysis and comprehensive reporting by Leighton O’Brien’s highly qualified analysts.

“Through this partnership, we can expand our presence and enhance our services portfolio by leveraging Leighton O’Brien’s technologies,” said Charlie Burns, President of Oscar W. Larson Company. “We can now offer our customers Leighton O’Brien’s fuel cleaning and polishing for underground and above ground storage tank systems. Fuel cleaning and polishing fits within our existing service business and will increase revenue and differentiate our service offering,” he said.

Leighton O’Brien President, Jeff Davis said, “The partnership will enable OWL customers to resolve water and fuel quality issues, such as water intrusion, malfunctioning dispensers, submersible pumps, automatic tank gauges, blocked filters, bacterial growth and phase separation. Unlike other tank cleaning companies, our patented design and three stage fuel cleaning process sweeps the entire tank floor to remove, sludge, sediment and free phase water from the tank while minimizing the effect of suspending these items into the fuel. Our stage two process polishes the fuel and returns the customers good product to the tank. Our final fuel cleaning report returns the fuel to pristine quality while quantifying the waste and contamination removed from sites to assist our customers with inventory reconciliation adjustments.”

Leighton O’Brien CEO, Reed Leighton said, “With our U.S. fuel cleaning distributor growth, Leighton O’Brien will clean more than 2,500 tanks globally. Our patented systems are designed in Australia and built in the U.S. which has become our largest fuel cleaning and polishing market over the last three years with the support of highly qualified PEI distributors.”
