Thompson-Kenny, LLC was formed in May 2008 when Tommy Thompson and Josh Kenny formed a partnership to purchase the wholesale fuel dealer business and trucking assets of longtime Atlanta distributor Perimeter Oil Company. In 2012 Thompson-Kenny purchased the wholesale fuel dealer business and trucking assets of Pacer Fuels in Austell, GA and formed a joint venture with Jones Oil Distributor of Jasper, GA to serve and distribute products to the Jones dealers in North Georgia. Buying Pacer gave Thompson-Kenny the rights to distribute Chevron and Marathon products and significantly increased the foot print of stations in the Atlanta area. In 2020 Thompson-Kenny purchased Davis Company located in Perry, Georgia. This acquisition expanded the Thompson-Kenny geography into new markets in Middle Georgia and significantly grew the dealer business with Shell, Chevron and Citgo. Thompson-Kenny is now the largest Shell wholesaler in the State of Georgia!
Thompson-Kenny continues to grow and is now one of the largest gasoline distributors in Georgia selling fuel under the flags of Shell, Chevron, Texaco, Valero, Citgo and Marathon. Thompson-Kenny, LLC’s sister company Spirit Express is one of the largest independent petroleum haulers in the Southeast and hauls fuel throughout Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. Our customers and Oil Company partners have been the fuel for our growth and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Thompson-Kenny!
