In an agreement that will help foster sustainable economic growth in the Bristol Bay region, Bristol Alliance Fuels (BAF) assumed Delta Western operations in Dillingham and Naknek on April 16. BAF is now leasing and operating Delta Western’s fuel terminals in Dillingham and Naknek.
“This is a move about Bristol Bay that will benefit our communities through efficiency in operations and more in-region jobs. This agreement helps create value for BBNC and cost savings for our in-region shareholders,” said Joseph L. Chythlook, BBNC Board Chair.
Both companies will be able to focus on their strengths with this agreement, as Delta Western will become BAF’s exclusive provider of fuel-based petroleum products. Delta Western has a global fuel supply that will put downward pressure on pricing in Dillingham and Naknek and BAF is best suited for point-topoint sales and knowing the region well.
“This move is good for Delta Western, Bristol Alliance Fuels and the Bristol Bay community as a whole,” said Bob Cox, President and CEO of Bristol Alliance Fuels.
The agreement will benefit Bristol Bay communities by creating economic opportunities throughout the region. BAF will continue to provide timely and responsive fuel delivery, as well as a continued emphasis on effective, locally-focused service.
“The agreement is part of a longterm plan to grow an already strong BAF into a more effective, productive business. I’m glad that both BAF and Delta Western are able to focus on what they do best,” said Mark Nelson, President and CEO of Bristol Bay Industrial.
