Husky Brings to Market Two Environmentally-Friendly Products to their Family of Products at the same time that their Technical Service Engineer adds to his Family
Husky, that already has a fine line-up of complimentary products, just
added two more: Oil Baron and Oil Baron Plus. Like a student who loves
chemistry class, Paul Nilsen, Husky’s Technical Service Engineer assigned
to these new products, is excited to demonstrate how they work using
something called microbial action. He, along with Brad Baker, Husky’s
Executive Vice President, are nothing short of giddy when they talk
about the two new Oil Baron products.
Paul could not wait to squeeze some oil onto a granite sample board and
then add a diluted amount of Oil Baron. The mixture started to bubble
and pop. Carbon Dioxide was released into the air and water remained.
When the bubbling stops, no special hazardous waste disposal is
required for what was left over. A simple concept with far-reaching
ramifications. Oil Baron is used to clean unsightly, unsafe or hazardous
messes using floor scrubbers, pressure washers or mops. The product is
also great for use in an Emergency Spill kit -- because it makes a gas spill
non-flammable very quickly.
As we moved on to the Oil Baron Plus product, Paul coolly checked his
phone. He had an important reason to stay connected: his wife was
about ready to give birth to their child. Although he was allowed go
home to be with her, he wanted to finish the demonstration albeit at a
Paul explained that Oil Baron Plus removes the toughest hydrocarbon
(oil, gas/diesel, tar) stains on most hard, industrial surfaces. Paul warned
that one must be careful when using this product as it will turn an asphalt/gravel road into just gravel and, if it gets on your car, will dissolve
Key market segments for these products include the petroleum
dispensing industry (gas stations, convenience stores, truck stops,
petroleum product distributors, airports, etc.) and the automotive repair
industry (car repair businesses, truck/auto dealers or service centers, oil
change shops, etc.) and any other commercial/residential application
where petroleum messes are an issue.
More detailed information is at the company's web
page https://www.husky.com/husky/oil-baron/oil-baron/ including
explanation videos and technical specifications.
Husky Corporation is a leading manufacturer of equipment for the
petroleum dispensing industry, which has been growing organically and
through acquisitions of companies and products in related industries and
has been in business for also 70 years, based now in Pacific, Missouri.
Congratulations to Paul and his wife who, a short time after our
interview, brought a healthy baby girl into this world. A world that now
contains a way to turn spilled hydrocarbons into harmless carbon dioxide
and water. Someday she will be proud of her Daddy for, in his own way,helping to make the world a cleaner place
