The assets and infrastructure we have acquired are proven, well known, and will enable Parkland to extend its supply advantage into a new region,” said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parkland. “I would like to welcome the Sol team to Parkland. Our two businesses are stronger together, and I look forward to the opportunities this acquisition will enable for all of us.”
