Petroleum Service Corp. has signed an agreement to acquire certain assets from Fryoux Tankerman Service, a shoreside tankerman company. Petroleum is a North American provider of tankerman services, product handling and site logistics for the petrochemical and refining industries.
Based in Norco, Louisiana, Fryoux has been serving customers along the US Gulf Coast since 1967 when it was founded as the second shoreside tankerman service, behind PSC.
As part of the transaction, PSC will absorb Fryoux’s tankerman operations along the Gulf Coast. Jimmy Fryoux, president of the third-generation, family-owned company, will join PSC’s marine operations team as an advisor.
“Like PSC, Fryoux has a long-standing reputation for quality service, safety and environmental protection, and their experience and expertize will serve as excellent supplements to our existing capabilities,” said PSC CEO Joel Dickerson.
