“I think every PEI member needs to be recognized in such a fashion that if a customer has a choice of doing business with a PEI member or a non-PEI member, they would choose the PEI member.

"The new owners of Southern Company of North Little Rock delved into the industry headfirst. Relying heavily on the PEI staff and other experts for guidance, Shelby and Grace put their faith in industry authorities like Bob Renkes. They trusted The Southern Company's veteran employees and their own gut instincts to guide them through the process of re-energizing a mature business. “It was a bit intimidating at first, but we always felt encouraged."

“Petroleum is no longer the only source of energy, non-petroleum products will begin to replace traditional applications, and although many of these fuels and lubricants will be stored and dispensed in the same basic equipment, there will be critical differences.

We need PEI to keep our finger on the pulse of the market and determine what new fuels are here to stay.”
