Don't Shoot the Messenger

It looks as though there will be a third national lubricants price increase between mid-May and June.  The typical suspects are to blame:  raw materials, packaging, additives, transportation, etc.  The new wrinkle being put into play is the A word:  Allocation.  Many oil companies have instituted limits on orders based upon a percentage of their yearly purchases and suggest that product shortages could exist.

At Dennis K. Burke Inc, we cannot control the price but we have a stable supply of  Fleetline Products for all of our current and future customers.  Unlike our competitors, we have no delivery or fuel surcharges.  To find out how we can save your operation money, call me @ 617-819-3206.

Ed Burke to Speak at Massachusetts GreenStar Expo

 

Ed Burke, Chairman of the Board of Dennis K. Burke Inc.  will be speaking May 3, 2011 at the Massachusetts GreenStar  Expo being held at the Boston Convention Expositon Center during the Fleet Managers Workshop.  Ed will be speaking about the new Selective Catalyst  Reduction Systems that are now standard on the majority of diesel engines built after 2009.  This technology is designed to reduce NOx levels 83% from 2007 EPA Emissions.  The SCR system  is an aftertreatment technology that treats exhaust gas downstream of the engine.  Diesel Exhaust Fluid (Def) is injected into the exhaust stream and reacts with the NOx, changing into emissions of harmless nitrogen and water.
