Engagement Snapshot

Founded in 1941, Hopson Oil is a regional distributor of fuel oil and gasoline products to business and residential customers throughout southeastern Wisconsin. In addition to operating two bulk fuel terminals and delivering product utilizing the Company’s fleet of bulk transportation vehicles, Hopson provides ancillary support services including HVAC system maintenance, service, and installation to residential and commercial accounts. After more than 80 successful years in business, the family-led ownership group decided it was time to exit and engaged PPC to explore alternatives for the Company. After contacting and negotiating with numerous financial and strategic parties, a transaction involving E.H. Wolf & Sons proved to be the best long-term partner to take over the legacy of Hopson Oil.
