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.
