“This product will give customers peace of mind and protect both their fuel and their profits,” says Atlas Oil spokesperson.
Fuel theft from above ground tanks is becoming a growing problem in these tough economic times.
To address this issue, Atlas Oil Co. has partnered with Burlingame Industries to distribute TankShield, an innovative fuel theft deterrent system specifically engineered to protect a company’s investment in fuel. Atlas will market the TankShield product exclusively in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
“At Atlas, we understand that our customers make a significant investment in fuel for their business,” said Bob Kenyon, executive vice president, Sales and Business Development for Atlas. “Often times this is their second highest cost after the cost of personnel. This product will give customers peace of mind and protect both their fuel and their profits.”
The TankShield product is easy to install and works on all size skid tanks. The TankShield is mounted on top of the fuel tank, acting as a barrier to entry. The fuel is protected by a unique, puck style locking mechanism, which has been tested and proven to withstand tampering. Traditional locking methods in the past have been ineffective, but this unique style prevents bolt cutters, etc. from compromising the locking mechanism.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Atlas Oil as a master distributor,” said Mark Bruinius, CEO and Owner of Burlingame Industries Inc. “Any business owner that uses a significant amount of fuel for their business and has above ground skid tanks knows the value of protecting that investment. We are seeing significant interest from construction contractors, landscapers, agriculture, aggregate and other fuel intensive businesses. An added plus is that this product is made in Michigan.”
Atlas Oil supplies fuel to nearly 400 gasoline convenience stores throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
