This week marks the end of a busy summer of fueling innovation at Atlas Oil Company! From multiple driver appreciation events to company picnics to the largest emergency fueling deployment in company history—this summer has been marked by historic growth and innovation throughout the company.
The work hard play hard attitude that encapsulates Atlas’ nationwide team fuels everything we do. The summer kicked off with a company-wide picnic at the Taylor, Michigan headquarters. This was quickly followed by the launch of our brand new, mobile responsive website.
The new website was not the only summer project for the “A” Team. The number of frac fueling crews for our oilfield services team multiplied as clients recognized our team’s dedication to safety, quality customer service and innovation through our Fuel Automation Station units. We also scaled operations throughout our new OFS regions in Odessa, TX, Guthrie, OK and Williston, ND.
Atlas’ newest strategic partner, Preventative Maintenance Technologies, specializes in generator supply, rental, and preventative maintenance services, helping Atlas Oil become a single source provider for all fuel and generator related services. This is a tremendous addition to our Generator Assurance Plans and guarantees our contracted customers complete generator care and 100% uptime.
This strategic partnership was finalized just in time to assist the millions affected by the devastation that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma created throughout the South. The emergency response team mobilized immediately upon realizing just how destructive these two hurricanes would prove to be and provided emergency fuel to first responders, military personnel, contracted customers and other mission critical organizations. The effects of the hurricanes have been heart wrenching to watch unfold, but our drivers and emergency fueling team continue to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that all are safe and fully fueled during the relief efforts. The dual emergency deployment has been the largest in company history.
When the emergency response team at HQ isn’t working to coordinate hurricane relief efforts, they can take a break at the Atlas Energy Arena to collect their thoughts and go for a run. The gym was completed in July, and in addition to brand new equipment, all team members can sign up for group fitness classes. The classes are a great place to work off all the potluck and team lunches we’ve had this summer too.
Atlas also celebrated the front line of our business—our drivers. With appreciation events around the country, including a celebration in Indiana where we’re expanding operations, we made sure to recognize the hard work our drivers do every day. Atlas also promoted several team members and recognized others through the quarterly Sammy’s award program. Team members also got to celebrate the end of Q2 with a Share Power bonus! And we can't forget about the Team Selfridge Family Day Picnic that we hosted in August.
With so much going on at Atlas, it can feel tough to keep up with, so be sure to give us a follow on social media to stay up to date. Atlas Oil is looking forward to continuing the momentum created during summer into the remainder of the year as we Fuel Innovation in the energy industry and beyond!
