Apache Oil Company distributes a vast
range of petroleum products including:
gasoline, diesel, marine, kerosene, oils
and lubricants, and jet fuels. It also carries
solvents, chemicals, hand cleaners, absorbents, degreasers and the Baldwin line of
filters. It distributes wholesale automotive
parts and supplies to auto dealers, auto repair shops, auto suppliers, lube shops and
other automotive-related businesses.
The company offers wholesale lubricant and fuel needs 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week and 365 days per year to service its
customers in the oil, chemical and petrochemical industries. "Wherever you
are and whenever you need our services,
Apache is there for you," the company

strip centers, refrigeration setups and

can also benefit from the company's services. "Fuel is valuable to manufacturers
and businesses, particularly those who

engines," the company explains. "Just
like regular motorists and their cars,
manufacturers need to stay on top of
their fuel reserves or end up with completely inoperable hardware."
