GUARDIAN COMPANY HISTORY
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 2017, 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 in Birmingham, Alabama, Atlanta, Georgia,
Columbia, South Carolina, and Charlotte, Greensboro,
and Raleigh, North Carolina.
