HISTORY


Kildair is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sprague Resources LP, a diversified refined products, natural gas, and materials handling business founded in 1870 with operations throughout the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada.

 

1929

Kildair started by specializing in road transportation via Delangis Express.

   

1966

Over the course of many years and generations the company expanded. In 1966, it acquired Kildair Service which specialized in regional transportation and soon thereafter focused its operations on trucks and semi-trailers leasing.

   

1980's

During the 1980s, Kildair diversified into the sale and transportation of petroleum products.


This decade also marked the company’s expansion into general transportation. Wintergreen Transport Corporation Ltd was acquired in 1986 and the business now operates a fleet of 250 vehicles that provides Kildair an effective and reliable complementary transportation service.  

   

2007

Kildair entered into a partnership with Sprague Energy (renamed Sprague International Properties LLC in 2011) which acquired 50% of the shares.
   

2011

Kildair acquired assets from Hydro-Québec in Sorel-Tracy, including seven storage tanks with 210 000 barrels of storage capacity each and a dock on the St-Lawrence Seaway increasing its storage capacity by 1.5 million barrels.
   

2012

Sprague International Properties LLC purchased the outstanding 50% shares, resulting in 100% ownership.

   

2013

Kildair entered into a long-term contract with a major integrated oil company for crude oil handling and storage utilizing the recently acquired Hydro-Quebec assets.
   

2014

Kildair starts its operation of crude oil handling and storage,  at its Sorel-Tracy Terminal.  Towards the end of the year, Kildair became an indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary of Sprague Resources LP, a publicly traded Master Limited Partnership (MLP)  (NYSE: SRLP)
   

Kildair has grown from local transportation into a company specializing in the production, distribution and storage of heavy fuel, liquid asphalt and crude oil.
