Our New Name and Company Logo

After listening to feedback from our loyal customers and many months of product planning, we have recently announced a consolidation of our Blue1USA and EZ Fuel companies, along with the launch of our new company name and logo. This consolidation will help streamline our operation and provide our customers with the ability to turn to one experienced company for all of their fuel island needs.

Our new logo is centered around the nationally recognized Blue1 name and reputation we have proudly earned with innovative, quality DEF products since this industry was born in 2008. The Energy Equipment is a result of our research and commitment of providing the infrastructure for fleets our customers will need in the future.
