Quest Resource Adds the Two Largest Automotive Aftermarket Retailers to Its Portfolio of Clients

Quest Continues to Increase Its Market Share in the Automotive Sector

THE COLONY, TX--(Marketwired - April 06, 2016) - Quest Resource Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: QRHC) ("Quest") announced today that it now serves the two largest retailers of aftermarket automotive parts and accessories in the United States in recycling the used motor oil brought in by their customers. Used oil disposal, depending on how it is managed, can become a serious problem or a valuable resource for the do-it-yourself (DIY) car owner. This is why many states require retailers that sell motor oil to provide a service to collect and recycle used motor oil brought in by customers. Quest has developed a solution that allows retailers to secure top-of-the-line collection equipment while minimizing the cost to recycle the collected used motor oil.

"Our focused approach to helping automotive aftermarket retailers is being well received," commented Ray Hatch, Quest CEO. "Last year, we added over 3,500 new automotive customer locations, and today we are adding an additional 1,000 locations. This allows us to manage the recycling of approximately 40 million gallons of used motor oil annually, or approximately a 10% market share. Our buying power allows us to leverage local market dynamics and to secure fair market prices for our customers."

Quest's holistic service offering from evaluation to implementation and measurement has made it a leading provider of recycling solutions. Quest currently serves over 90,000 user service locations (user service locations = number of customers x locations per customer x services per location).
