The Power Service Story
When Al Kramer mixed up the
first batch of Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement in
his garage in 1956, he knew he was onto something. It
simply worked better than anything he had seen during
his years as a chemist for a major oil company.
Al’s son, Ed Kramer, helped market Power Service, taking
it directly to the truckers who needed it. With a simple
shaker test in the parking lot of a local truckstop, he
put Power Service up against the leading diesel fuel
additives. The results were undeniable. Power Service
simply dispersed water faster and more completely than
anything on the market. The truckers took note and so
did the truckstop owner who agreed to carry the product.
When Ed took over management of the business in 1971, he
had only one product to sell. He knew that a strong
national distributor network was essential to the
company’s growth and success, so he used the same
resourcefulness he showed early on in his career, and
immediately began securing new warehouse distributors.
By 1976, Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement was
available coast-to-coast, and by 1981 was the nation’s
best seller - a title we still hold today.
The distribution network in place, Power Service then
began developing diesel-fuel treatments to meet the
needs of major fleets wanting reliable winter-fuel
operability at a low per-Litre treatment cost. About
that same time, premium diesel fuel sales were just
taking off, so Power Service started developing products
to give fuel-jobbers and truckstops the competitive edge
they needed for premium fuel sales.
Today, Power Service Products of Weatherford, Texas,
offers a complete line of diesel fuel additives. What
started over 50 years ago in a small, one-car garage has
grown into one of the industry’s biggest and most
endearing success stories. Power Service Products is a
recognized leader in diesel fuel additive technology - a
company dedicated to giving more power to you.
