Orlando, Florida – Palmdale Oil, South Florida's largest family-owned oil distributor, has announced the acquisition of Scotty's Oil in Orlando, Florida. The acquisition is the latest strategic investment by Palmdale Oil to expand and deepen its services and distribution.

Scotty's Oil, a privately-owned petroleum jobber, has been active in serving Central Florida since 1967, offering competitive pricing on various oils, lubricants, mineral spirits, anti-freezes, and chemicals.

The acquisition will provide a platform for Palmdale's growth in the Central Florida area, strengthening experience and brand recognition throughout the region and will further establish Palmdale's Florida distribution and operations.

Commenting on the acquisition, CEO Bert Bennin of Scotty's Oil said, "Palmdale Oil Company is a family-owned business like ours and has the same values as us about quality products and timely service. The only difference you will see is the color of their trucks. You will have access to more products and locations in for fuel and oil in Florida."

The employees of Scotty's Oil will operate under the Palmdale Oil name, management team, and capability which currently includes locations in Ft. Pierce, Boynton Beach, Fort Myers, Okeechobee, Riviera Beach, Tampa, and now Orlando.
