About our history
In 1997, Ford Motor Company approached the principals of Jack Becker Distributors (Jacksonville) and Flamingo Oil Company (Miami) requesting a Motorcraft distributorship in Central Florida. Backed by a 40+ year relationship, and a common belief that good service is a key principle to sales, it was agreed to launch Seaboard Distribution to meet the needs of Ford Motor Company.
In 2003, Seaboard Distribution expanded by acquiring the business portfolio of Coastal Unilube in the Central Florida market. In 2010, Seaboard Distribution acquired Neumann Oil Company based in Tampa, Florida. Neumann Oil Company was founded in 1933, and it was decided to honor that heritage and today’s company name was born… Seaboard Neumann Distribution.
In 2012, Seaboard Neumann Distribution acquired Clean Diesel Services, a Diesel Exhaust Fluid marketer, based in Orlando, Florida. Seaboard Neumann continues to grow based on the original belief that good service leads to success.
