US Venture Inc, a distributor and marketer of energy, automotive, and lubricant products in North America, has established a separate corporate division for its compressed natural gas (CNG) business.
The new division, called US Gain, will encompass all operations related to its expanding CNG network for commercial fleet operators and shippers in North America. The network is marketed under the GAIN Clean Fuel brand, which has 39 sites operational or underway with a target of 100 locations in the next two years.
GAIN Clean Fuel was originally managed within the US Oil division whose principal focus is petroleum and biofuel distribution, trading, and terminal operations. US Venture’s other two divisions include US AutoForce and US Lubricants.
“We are very excited about our new US Gain division,” said John Schmidt, US Venture president. “This move supports the US Venture vision of being the very best value-adding distributor of products that vehicles consume in North America. It recognizes the strategic importance and role US Gain will play in achieving that vision.”
Bill Renz, US Gain general manager, said, “The new division emphasizes US Venture’s commitment to this growing category and to the GAIN Clean Fuel brand. The quality way we do business will not change, and our goal remains to be a leading national supplier to our commercial customers.”
For more than 60 years, US Venture has been recognized as a leader in the distribution of petroleum and renewable energy products, lubricants, and tires and parts for the vehicle aftermarket. The Appleton WI-based company’s business divisions are US Oil, US AutoForce, US Lubricants, and US Gain. US Venture has a workforce of more than 1,100 associates across the United States.
