Biodiesel wholesaler Amerigreen celebrates 10-year anniversary

By Ron Kotrba | April 23, 2015

Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based Amerigreen Energy Inc., a domestic fuel and biodiesel wholesaler, is celebrating 10 years in business, and as the company has matured, it’s had to change with the times.

The company initially focused on one product—biodiesel—but over the years, industry trends spurred Amerigreen to pursue diversification. 

In 2005, the company had three employees and served biodiesel to south-central Pennsylvania. Ten years later, Amerigreen has 25 employees serving the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions with eight products and services. 

Today, Amerigreen wholesales biodiesel, refined fuels, propane, natural gas, electricity and lubricant products, in addition to providing brand marketing and hedging services to a growing network of Amerigreen distributors and customers.

“As we’ve diversified and expanded our business from one to eight product lines in a relatively short time, it has been challenging,” said Steve McCracken, president and CEO. “It is the vision of our ownership and the steadfast resolve of our employees that guide us to sustained growth and success.”

The company says it was born in response to decades of international conflicts waged over energy, and it has evolved with these ideals to serve the sustainable growth of retail fuel distributors throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions.

Ten years running, the company still seeks opportunities to reverse trends of international fuel dependence as a provider of domestically produced refined products and renewable fuels.

The company says its approach is paying off. Diversifying its offerings has led to company profit.

Amerigreen measures success, however, in more than dollars or company growth. Using domestic, nonpolluting renewable energy has created jobs, increased national security and strengthened the health of the nation.

The company says it conducts regular audits to illustrate how fuel dollars are staying in the hands of Americans and the impact of consumer choices on reducing energy. Recognizing that energy choices made today affect future generations, Amerigreen focuses on additional benchmarks, such as encouraging distributor customers to reduce their energy consumption and make smarter energy choices, which, when combined with the purchase of domestic and renewable energies, help to bring the nation closer to independence from securing energy from unfriendly foreign nations.

“It’s hard to believe that 10 years have passed, as we still feel like a startup in many ways,” McCracken added. “I am proud of our team at Amerigreen. We have a very special group of people. Every day we strive to support one another and to provide exceptional service that has fostered deep, long-term customer relationships. These special relationships have been pivotal to our success and reaching our 10-year anniversary.”
