Love’s Travel Stop buy new DEF blending facility in Memphis, Tennessee

Alex Wood - 19 July 2016

Musket Corp, a subsidiary of Love's, has bought an 100,000 square-foot warehouse in Memphis, TN. The complex will be used to blend and distribute Love's DEF product to the surrounding region, including the six DEF pump stops operated by Love's Travel Stops and twelve other DEF locations within a 100-mile radius of the facility.

The warehouse, reported to have been purchased for $1.6 million in June 2016, is situated on a 12.75-acre plot that is connected to the Canadian National Railway network with two active rail spurs. This gives the facility access to ports in New Orleans for the import of prilled urea as well as future opportunities to distribute its finished product by rail.
