Amalie Oil Company announces its acquisition of Delfin Group USA LLC, a lubricant blending and packaging facility in Charleston, S.C.
With the December acquisition of this 42-acre facility on the Cooper River deep-water channel at the Port of North Charleston, Amalie says it now has two world-class facilities in major U.S. ports with deep-water access.
“This new facility is an opportunity for us to enhance our ability to service both the domestic and international markets,” says Harry Barkett, president of Amalie Motor Oil. “A facility with such a rich history, immense capabilities and unparalleled access can only yield positive results for our clientele.”
Amalie says the property includes a deep-water pier, rail access and close proximity to major federal interstates. The pier is capable of handling dock offloading for ships up to 660 ft. long with a 110-ft. beam, and the navigable mean low water depth is 45 to 50 ft., the company says.
The facility also features 14 million gallons of tank storage, increasing AMALIE’s total tank storage to 32 million gallons. Additionally, AMALIE now owns a total of more than 650,000 sq. ft. in warehouse and manufacturing space and 20 high-speed filling and packaging lines, increasing the company’s blow molding plastic bottle capacity to more than 250 million containers per year, the company says.
