Sterling Fuels Limited began operations in 1993 when McAsphalt Industries purchased a dormant ship-fuelling facility in Windsor, Ontario. No employees, no customers, no supply team—just a dream!
Operations quickly grew to include marine fuel blending and sales, Mobil marine lubricant sales, and asphalt storage. In 2007, after the acquisition of a local land fuel and lubricant distributor, the Windsor facility was expanded and capabilities increased.
In 2013, Sterling continued to grow through the purchase of Sterling's largest competitor, Provmar Fuels in Hamilton, Ontario. This strategic move expanded the marine fuelling and marine lubricants available on the Great Lakes, including a state-of-the-art fuelling tanker, the Sterling Energy. This expansion not only allowed Sterling to better support its customers with quality marine products and services, but it put Sterling Fuels in a strong position to meet the ever-changing demands of the marine industry well into the future.
In 2014, Sterling solidified its presence in two of Canada's main vessel bunkering ports, Sarnia and Halifax, by taking over the sales of marine fuels from its strategic partner, Imperial Oil. Through another strategic partnership with one of its largest customers, Algoma Central Marine, Sterling began offering a barge fuelling option in Halifax with the Algoma Dartmouth.
By establishing clear strategies and objectives, Sterling Fuels has been able to successfully implement a comprehensive Integrated Management System (ISO 9001/14001) that has allowed us to sustain our competitive advantage.
Prominent safety programs and constant training ensure that our facilities are safe for employees as well as all customers. These programs are coupled with environmental programs to reduce waste and air emissions, while improving water monitoring and raw material management. All of Sterling's facilities take an aggressive approach to reducing their impact on the environment.
Sterling Fuels is committed to providing you with exceptional value through "The Right Blend" of products, expertise and services in each of our markets. We are driven to find best-in-class partners, suppliers, products and service solutions. Our staff is dedicated and well trained, they have years of field experience, and they boast the support of globally recognized suppliers.
