Parkland USA has opened an office in Charleston, S.C., that will head up marketing and sales development for the U.S., and will work in tandem with the newly opened Trading and Supply office in Houston, and the Regional Operations Centers in North Dakota and Utah to grow Parkland USA’s business nationwide.
Parkland USA currently has operations in 11 states, primarily out west.
This national center will advance Parkland’s desire to grow its marketing capacities in the North American and international sectors. As part of its comprehensive business strategy, Parkland aims to create meaningful value as a leading downstream energy supplier and convenience marketer.
Parkland USA has tripled its business in the past 18 months and is looking to grow rapidly over the next several years through acquisitions and organic growth. The U.S. had 300 employees 18 months ago and now has 1100.
The company has acquired four companies over the past year and has 50 gas stations, 220 dealer owned and 300 trucks.
The Marketing and Sales Development Center is expected to employ up to 22 people, largely focused on marketing, sales development, national accounts, people and culture and communications.
