August 15, 2016- Jacksonville, Florida - Guardian Fueling Technologies, LLC is pleased to announce the acquisition of MECO of North Florida, Inc.

Joey Batchelor, President and CEO of Guardian Fueling Technologies, stated “GFT remains in growth mode and is very actively pursuing strategic opportunities to expand and/or solidify our position as the market leader for petroleum equipment, services, solutions and construction. The acquisition of MECO of North Florida will enhance our bandwidth and capabilities in the Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia markets. MECO of North Florida has a long history dating back several decades in Jacksonville and the surrounding area.
