As a third-generation, family-owned business, Benson Oil has been supplying the Kootenay Boundary region for over 60 years.
The full-service oil distributor has been looking for ways to grow while maintaining consistency and sustainability in the region. Working with the Trust, it now has the opportunity to strengthen its presence in the area by increasing its focus on the transportation and distribution of fuels and lubricants within the region, while enabling it to both add services and broaden its service area.
“Where other lenders shied away from our plans and our company because we deal with transporting dangerous goods, the Trust never doubted our desire to expand. In fact, I appreciated that they made us think even more about our long-term plans.” —Albert Benson Jr., President, B A Benson & Son Ltd./Benson Oil Inc.
