ValvTect Petroleum Products said today that it acquired Michigan-based Energy Additives.

ValvTect Petroleum Products of Northbrook, Ill., said today that it acquired Michigan-based Energy Additives Inc., a supplier of LPG/propane fuel additives and the exclusive distributor of Blue Moon propane filtration systems.

“Energy Additives patented LPG/propane additives, and Blue Moon filtration systems are natural extensions to ValvTect’s line of diesel, gasoline and biocide fuel additives. As many of our distributors now market propane, these products that improve the burning characteristics of LPG/propane will provide an opportunity to supply a higher-quality propane and improved consumer experience,” ValvTect Petroleum founder Jerry Nessenson said in a statement.

“My wife, Nancy, and I have operated Energy Additives since 1984. Merging the business with ValvTect allows us to expand the distribution of our products to ValvTect’s huge distributor base,” Energy Additives president Lloyd Lack said.

ValvTect president Marvin Griffin said the company will service existing Energy Additives domestic and international customers and expand the line to its own distributors.
