America’s Go-to Company for High Quality Petroleum Products and Services
The seventh most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded was barreling towards Texas, and Sun Coast Resources was at the ready.
As it has time and again, in August 2007 the Houston-based petroleum marketer placed its emergency fueling assets and personnel in Hurricane Dean’s projected path to supply fuel to first responders, recovery and rescue agencies, and private-sector teams.
In fact, Sun Coast, which has a longstanding emergency fueling contract with the State of Texas, and priority emergency response service commitments with every other state along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Seaboard, has responded to nearly every hurricane event since 2004 with emergency response fueling before, during and after the storms. It has also delivered necessary fuel during ice storms, fires, floods and devastating tornadoes in the Midwest, Central and Northeast U.S.
“We have the expertise and experience to deliver under the most harrowing conditions,” says Kathy Lehne, the company’s founder, president and CEO.
Sun Coast Delivers
Calm or storm, Sun Coast takes pride in delivering the highest quality goods and services on time, every time to help customers run their businesses without worrying whether they will run out of fuel. It supplies fuel, high quality Chevron lubricants and other well-known brands, petroleum transportation, emergency response fueling, oil purification and filtration, and many other petroleum products and programs throughout its expanding 35-state marketing territory. In essence, Sun Coast Resources is a total solutions provider. Customers range from small retail convenience stores to major railroad transportation companies and airlines. “We have the human, physical and technological resources to improve our customers’ operations and eliminate the pain they often experience with other suppliers,” Lehne says.
Lehne started Sun Coast Resources 27 years ago, confident she could make a real difference in the wholesale petroleum marketing arena. Today Sun Coast is the largest woman-owned business in Texas – and one of the largest petroleum marketers in the nation – with over 12,000 active customers in nearly every fuel-consuming segment and more than 1,500 employees, including over 1,000 HAZMAT-certified drivers. Sun Coast’s revenues in 2012 are projected to exceed $2 billion. The company dominates the Southwest U.S. in wholesale petroleum sales and service, with one of the most extensive delivery fleets anywhere and unmatched marketing, operations, safety, IT, dispatch, finance, human resource, accounting and management personnel.
“We are proud of our reputation as the go-to company for high quality petroleum products and services, backed by an unconditional guarantee,” Lehne says. “We pay attention to the smallest details of every transaction, and we never close our doors. At Sun Coast Resources, we keep America running.”
