Auburn’s Flyers Energy expands with two more acquisitions

Auburn-based Flyers Energy LLC says it has acquired two fueling/lubricants companies in California.

Flyers acquired the assets and business operations of Bloomington-based Poma Distributing Co. Inc. and Santa Rosa-based Redwood Coast Petroleum.

Financial details of the acquisitions were not disclosed. In a media release, the company said it is “hopeful to complete several more acquisitions in 2015.”

Flyers has been on a growth track since 2012. In 2014, it bought Reno-based fuel distributor Allied Washoe Petroleum and the commercial fueling/wholesale contracts of Redding Oil Co., a Northern California firm that traces its roots back to 1939.

Flyers distributes wholesale and branded retail fuel, commercial lubricants, renewable fuels and solar power nationwide. The privately owned company bills itself as Northern California’s largest fuel distributor. It is the marketer for scores of Chevron, Shell, Valero and 76 branded stations and offers commercial fueling at 230,000 retail gas stations via its Flyers Fleet Card.
