Conserv FS acquires Blake Oil Company to expand regional footprint
DeKALB – Conserv FS haș acquired Blake Oil Company, which has locations in Kirkland and Rockford. According to Blake Oil Company’s website, the company was established in 1919. Blake Oil Company has been offering professional fuel and lubricant delivery services to Kirkland, Rockford and communities across North-Central Illinois for four generations. Conserv FS is a cooperative headquartered in Woodstock. Because of the acquisition, Conserv FS will be locally servicing Blake Oil customers. “Customers can look forward to working with our team of employees committed to excellent customer service,” David Swigart General Manager of Conserv FS said in a news release. “Current Blake Oil employees will become part of the Conserv FS Team, and I am particularly looking forward to working with Michael Glendenning in his new role as our area petroleum manager for our western region and leader of our Rockford and DeKalb energy hubs.” Conserv FS has been a locally owned and controlled cooperative since 1928. Conserv FS supplies propane, liquid fuels, lubricants, turf care and agronomy products and services. The company has 13 service center locations throughout northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. “One of the goals that I wanted to accomplish with this sale was to transition the business to a cooperative supplier who would provide customers the same high level of quality products and services that we have provided in the past,” Glendenning said.
