Blue Sky East plans to add three new DEF blending plants

Christopher Goodfellow - 4 February 2012

Blue Sky, a subsidiary of Prime Lube, has told discoverDEF.com it plans to open DEF manufacturing plants in Marshville, NC, and Owensboro, KY, in February, and Denver, CO, at the start of the third quarter.

Robert Arbasetti, Chief Operating Officer of Blue Sky, told discoverDEF.com: "We are within three weeks to a month of having three plants online, with new locations opening in Owensboro and Marshville, east of Charlotte."

Prime Lube started manufacturing BlueSKY Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at its facility in Avenel, NJ, in September 2010.

Arbasetti added the company's blending plant network would provide it with a significant logistical and cost advantage.

In January, Blue Sky East also announced a partnership with Burkett Oil to distribute DEF in the Atlanta Metro Region.

"The addition of Burkett Oil to our growing family of distributorships is significant for our growth. We are excited about our association with Burkett Oil, a major established fuel and lubricant supplier, and the expansion of Blue Sky DEF in one of the Southeast's largest metropolitan areas," said Arbasetti.

Blue Sky East covers 30 states and two Canadian provinces.
