TAYLOR, Mich. -- Atlas Oil Co.'s Emergency Fueling Solutions delivered more than 10,000 gallons of emergency fuel to local mission-critical businesses impacted by storms and tornadoes that recently ravaged the Midwest.
An estimated 235,000 homes in southeast Michigan were left without power following the storms on Nov. 17. That's when Atlas Oil came through by delivering the emergency fuel to major food retailers, telecom companies and health care facilities within a 72-hour timeframe.
"Whether it is delivering the fuel across the country to Superstorm Sandy victims, or filling up generators of businesses locally in the region, Atlas is committed to doing our part to aid natural disaster recovery efforts," said Atlas Oil Vice President Bob Kenyon. "Widespread outages like this can be devastating for businesses of all sizes. We can't stress the importance of emergency preparedness and planning enough for companies to keep operations running."
The deliveries are supported by Atlas Oil's supply network, which spans the Midwest and Southern regions of the United States. The Emergency Fueling Solutions' Generator Assistance Plan and Fleet Assurance Plan programs are intended to take clients out of predictable and vulnerable circumstances by guaranteeing fuel deliveries in any situation.
Taylor, Mich.-based Atlas Oil Co. provides fuel services to nearly 400 convenience stores and gas stations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
