January 2013 Marketer of the Month - Bay Area Oil Company


"Bay Area Oil Company operates with the highest degree of integrity and caters to the needs of both customers and employees alike," shared Tammy Tinder, MSR of Bay Area Oil.

"The company has worked with Phillips 66 Lubricants for more than twenty-five years and has demonstrated ongoing devotion to our brands and products." For its leadership in selling Phillips 66 Lubricants, coupled with its core values and second-to-none customer service, Bay Area Oil has been named January's Marketer of the Month.

Located in Benicia, Calif., Bay Area Oil continues to offer quality lubricants to the same Northern California region as it did when President and General Manager Gary Killgore purchased it in 1986. The company serves large, key cities within a 75- to 100-mile radius of its headquarters, such as Sacramento, San Francisco and Oakland. While Bay Area Oil offers an array of aviation, industrial and heavy-duty lubricants, it has seen great success by supplying automotive lubricants and focusing on the industrial sector. "We're very proud to be one of the few companies in our area that specializes in lubricants," added Killgore. "By doing so, we're able to enhance our experience, knowledge and lubricants skillset, which customers appreciate."

Throughout its relationship with Phillips 66 Lubricants, the company continues to carry Phillips 66, 76 Lubricants and Kendall Motor Oil product lines, but shares that they've seen the most growth with Kendall products. The company places great emphasis on forging personal interactions with its customers. In addition, the company attributes its success to its strong relationship with Phillips 66 Lubricants. "Our MSR, Tammy Tinder, is so attentive - always willing to give direction and help us through a situation - we highly value the support she provides," Killgore shared.

In addition to solid sales and support with Phillips 66 Lubricants, Bay Area Oil is grateful to its team of talented employees who ensure the company is offering the most premier customer service. "We're fortunate to have a remarkable team that attends to our customers' every need," stated Killgore. "Our reliability is what sets us apart from other companies - we pride ourselves on getting the customer involved from the beginning."

Over the next few years, the company sees itself expanding considerably while still continuing to concentrate on lubricants. "We hope to keep the sales advantage by specializing and offering the best possible service in the industry," exclaimed Killgore. Bay Area Oil sees a bright future ahead, and so do we. Congratulations, again, on being named January's Marketer of the Month!
