Michigan Petroleum Technologies, based in Port Huron, Michigan, is a family-owned business with a long history dating back to the 1930s. The company was formed through the merger of Secory Oil and White Oil in 1998, resulting in the establishment of Michigan Petroleum Technologies. With over 80 years of experience in petroleum distribution, the company has expanded its product and service offerings to cater to the evolving needs of its customers in Southern Michigan.
MPT has focused on the industrial manufacturing lubricant market, serving major OEMs, Tier One and Tier Two suppliers, as well as providing fuel and lubrication solutions for construction and fleet purposes.

He highlighted RelaDyne’s extensive presence in heavy-duty and reliability services as a significant advantage that will benefit their customers.
Secory believes that with RelaDyne’s strategic customer service and support team, they can expand their offerings and attract new customers while maintaining a focus on exceptional customer responsiveness.
Larry Stoddard, President and CEO of RelaDyne, sees the acquisition as an opportunity to expand the company’s geographic footprint in the North region and is enthusiastic about welcoming the Michigan Petroleum Technologies team to the RelaDyne family. Stoddard emphasized RelaDyne’s commitment to quality products and services, exceptional customer service, and a sustainable approach, which aligns with MPT’s values and principles.
David Schumacher, Chief Strategy & Operating Officer for RelaDyne, highlighted the acquisition as a means to expand MPT’s service offerings in the Industrial Fluid Management sector. He sees RelaDyne’s Reliability Services as a perfect complement to MPT’s existing service offering, providing unmatched resources and technical capabilities to customers in Michigan. Schumacher expressed excitement about partnering with Brad and Lew Secory, Kim White, and the entire Michigan Petroleum team.
The acquisition of Michigan Petroleum Technologies strengthens RelaDyne’s position as the “Acquirer of Choice” in the lubricants, fuel, and reliability services industry.
