Pugh Lubricants is a distributor of nationally branded and private label finished lubricants, antifreeze, and other ancillary product lines throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, and portions of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas. The company is headquartered in Asheboro, NC with 3 other locations in Richmond, VA; Charleston, SC; and Nashville, TN. Started in 1947, the company will continue to be managed by the third and fourth generations of company founder John Q. Pugh, Jr.
In March 2017, Pugh merged with Apollo Oil, a distributor of nationally branded and private label finished lubricants, antifreeze, and other ancillary product lines throughout Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, and portions of Illinois, Indiana, and Tennessee. The companies have very little overlap in geography, enabling Apollo and Pugh to continue operating as separate divisions.
