Together with Rhoads energy, we are assuring services will continue throughout the southern Pennsylvania area
(MANHEIM, Pa. - Sept. 18, 2018) Thousands of former Worley & Obetz customers finally have some good news, and some clarity about their accounts for commercial and home fueling services.
Diesel Direct, the nation's largest onsite mobile fueling company, has agreed to purchase the assets of the former Worley & Obetz. Diesel Direct has been serving the Pennsylvania market for more than a decade and will make the former Worley & Obetz Manheim location the new Diesel Direct headquarters for Pennsylvania and operate all services from this facility.
Rhoads Energy has agreed to immediately purchase divisions that service home retail customers, including the propane and HVAC divisions, from Diesel Direct and will operate those services from their Lancaster headquarters.
All former Worley & Obetz employees are strongly encouraged to contact Diesel Direct and Rhoads Energy about employment opportunities. Both Diesel Direct and Rhoads Energy are focused at generating more jobs locally for technicians, drivers and other personnel.
"Our team is excited to expand our existing footprint in the Pennsylvania area with this acquisition," said William McNamara, CEO of Direct Diesel. "We look forward to growing our presence in the market and providing an enhanced customer experience with our industry leading technology and solutions."
Rhoads Energy's purchase brings clarity — and a trusted local source in Pennsylvania for over 100 years — to thousands of former Worley & Obetz customers who use propane and HVAC services. Rhoads Energy's purchase includes equipment, trucks and other assets — including propane tanks installed at the homes of thousands of area customers.
Michael DeBerdine III, Rhoads Energy CEO said, "We sought this purchase because it enables Worley & Obetz customers to continue to get local propane & HVAC service from a hometown provider. This move also enables us to grow our team and add jobs."
