Tiger Fuel plans to acquire Anderson Oil & Propane of Fredericksburg, Virginia, joining two fuel companies with more than 90 years of combined experience in the oil and gas industry.

With the investment, Tiger Fuel will expand its service area from central Virginia to the greater Fredericksburg market. The move also provides Tiger Fuel with the ability to continue its growth in the state, following previous investments in the Orange, Greene, Buckingham,
 Lovingston and Appomattox regions of Virginia.

Anderson Oil’s 38 employees will join Tiger Fuel’s employee base of nearly 400 team members across four brands, including a car wash brand, Tiger Wash; a gourmet to-go convenience store chain, The Markets by Tiger; and a commercial and residential solar contractor, Tiger Solar.

Gordon Sutton, president of Tiger Fuel, says the companies “had more in common than we ever anticipated.”

“As we bring Tiger Fuel to the greater Fredericksburg area, we are confident that our approach to employee enrichment, customer service and charitable giving will feel like business as usual to Anderson’s customers and community,” he says. “We are honored that Mark and the Anderson team have entrusted us to continue their legacy and are very excited to grow our operations into a new

The companies plan to close in the second quarter.
