A century after being founded, Dead River Company, Portland, Maine, has become one of the largest distributors of petroleum products to retail and commercial customers in northern New England – particularly throughout the states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Of course, this success didn’t happen by accident, and didn’t come overnight. It was the result of sensing a shift in existing market dynamics, identifying new opportunities, and then having the fortitude and wherewithal to move the company in new directions.
As part of this wherewithal, Dead River aggressively adopts new technologies to improve operations. For instance, Dead River recently upgraded its bulk facility to utilize the SiteSentinel® iSite™ Automatic Tank-Gauging System from OPW Fuel Management Systems. By upgrading to the latest in tank-monitoring technology, Dead River eliminated the man-hour intensive task of manually monitoring tanks, while improving cost-efficiencies.
