NACD Member Superior Oil Co. Educates Rep. Wagner on Chemical Distribution

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - September 22, 2014) - Today, Superior Oil Company, Inc. hosted Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) at their Arnold, Missouri facility to educate her on the chemical distribution industry and how the company ensures its facility and surrounding community are kept safe through programs like Responsible Distribution®, the National Association of Chemical Distributors' (NACD) mandatory third-party verification environmental, health, safety, and security program. Superior Oil is a member in good standing of the association.

"Superior places a high value on building relationships with elected officials, and we were doubly proud today to show Congresswoman Wagner how we operate," stated Superior Oil Company President Kurt Hettinga. "As other chemical distribution companies are well aware, we need more leaders in Washington who understand the positive role our industry plays in creating jobs and growing the economy. We were grateful to have the opportunity to demonstrate those contributions to Congresswoman Wagner this afternoon."

"It was a pleasure to meet the Superior Oil Company family today and learn about their efforts to keep the Arnold community safe through Responsible Distribution," said Rep. Wagner, who sits on the House Committee on Financial Services. "I'm fighting hard in Washington for policies that ensure companies like Superior continue to succeed. Together, we can put more Americans back to work here in the Show Me state."
