Oil Equipment Co. (OEC), a full-service construction and oil equipment solution for convenience store owners and fuel delivery operators, opened a branch office in Huntsville, Alabama, the company announced.
The office, at 2315 Bob Wallace Ave. SW in Huntsville, expands OEC’s corporate footprint beyond its headquarters in the Birmingham suburb of Trussville. The new office strengthens OEC’s commitment to the growing Tennessee Valley region, said President Geoff Smith.
“With Huntsville being named as Alabama’s largest city, Oil Equipment Co. needed to leverage our core strengths in that market,” he said. “Our new location is fully stocked with the most commonly used items in the petroleum equipment industry so that we can offer 24-hour local service. Our goal is to service our customers with faster response times, which will reduce their overall operating expenses. Our local service will also reduce travel/mileage to and from our Birmingham location, saving our customers time and money.”
OEC is a general contractor licensed in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, providing custom petroleum and energy solutions to businesses across the Southeast. Jason Buxton, lead service technician for Huntsville, said the new office will help customers save money.
“I think having a local shop for fuel equipment will be beneficial to the local business owners,” Buxton said. "It also helps keep the prices and trip times reasonable for service work.”
In addition to new construction, OEC offers remodels of existing convenience stores, restaurants and other commercial buildings, as well as professional fuel installations and training from certified technicians. Matt Edmonds, sales manager for OEC's new Huntsville branch, said the new location provides business owners efficient solutions and quality service.
“We are right in the heart of Huntsville, which allows us to serve our customers quickly and efficiently,” he said. “It is nice to be located in such a great city. I am excited to serve the petroleum and energy industry in Huntsville as it continues to grow.”
OEC has served customers since 1947, offering more than 100 years of combined construction and fuel installation experience.
