ABOUT US

67 Years in the Making.

Founded in 1952 by George LeVasser Sr., Tropic Oil Company was owned and operated by the original family until it’s acquisition by Parkland Fuel Corporation in 2019. Our headquarters are strategically positioned on 10 ½ acres in Medley, Florida of Miami-Dade County with 2 other bulk plants to service the Central and West parts of Florida.

Tropic Oil has been a Marine distributor since the first NCL Longboats arrived in Miami in the early 1960’s. In fact, Mr. LeVasser Sr. pioneered the practice of pumping directly to the vessel. With decades of experience and top quality products to offer, our main focus is to support you as our customer and make sure your business runs as efficiently as possible.


Tropic Oil Company owns its own truck fleet to service all customers’ needs on a timely basis. Our fleet of 75+ units drive up and down Florida every day of the week. In many cases, Tropic Oil can provide deliveries on the same day or after-hours. We are dedicated to complete customer satisfaction, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


Our Commitment to Quality Service begins with our Team.

The Tropic Oil management team has a personal average of more than 25 years in the industry, and our employees’ average tenure with our company exceeds 15 years. As a family owned and operated business, we are very proud of that fact and it is that continuity which enables Tropic Oil Company to consistently provide a very high level of service to our customers.
