STRONG FOUNDATION. INNOVATIVE FUTURE.

Guardian Fueling Technologies was founded in Pompano Beach, Florida in 1972, originally operating as NRI Service and Supply. The company was a factory authorized service provider for most industry leading manufacturers of petroleum equipment. The majority of the company's clients were major oil companies. Founded as a service only business, the early days of the company served as a strong foundation for our commitment to providing outstanding service to our valued customers that we still pursue today.

​In 1996, our President, Joey Batchelor purchased the company from its founders, and with a new vision for the business, renamed the company Guardian Fueling Technologies.

The company began to transform into a regional provider of service, distribution, design and construction of innovative fuel systems across Florida. By 2008, Guardian had branch locations in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, Ft. Myers, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Pensacola.

​In 2015, the company began a series of acquisitions and opening of new greenfield offices, expanding Guardian's footprint across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S., opening branch locations across Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

Today Guardian is proud to be the regions most reputable provider of fueling equipment, fuel systems construction, and value-added service provider.
