Bosselman Energy officially opened their new $2.5 million facility in Plainville with a ribbon cutting on Friday, December 9, 2016. The new facility is located at 200 NE 6th Street, along U.S. Highway 183 in north Plainville. The former Turnbull Oil facility in downtown Plainville is still operational at this time as well.
The new facility incorporates state-of-the-art technology; 100,000 gallons of fuel storage; and a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Dispenser. The facility includes a 12,500 square foot building with a shop, a warehouse and office, plus seven bulk fuel storage tanks that hold more than 100,000 gallons of refined petroleum products. The pumps are 24-hour credit card fuel dispensers.
“This opening is bitter sweet, as we announce the retirement of Jeff Turnbull and the promotion of Quentin Meyers to the position of General Manager,” said Fred Bosselman, CEO of Bosselman Energy. “Jeff was kind enough to stay on with us through this process. He was planning to retire in October but fortunately for us, he stuck around a little longer to complete the project.”
Bosselman hopes that the new facility will lead to more development in the area. “We had really outgrown our former facility; we needed the space and got the opportunity to update everything in this move. The new location has more room for trucks to navigate the plant. The company purchased the land in 2015 with the intention of developing a new site and we hope this will jumpstart development of this corridor.”
