About Company

Alta Fuels could be described as any one of currently in-fashion words like synergy, collaboration, symbiosis. Any one of those powerful adjectives would be correct, but Alta Fuels is best described as a business relying on old-fashioned team work. Alta Fuels IS the sum of its several parts including both Alta Transportation and Alta Lubricants. Each business division relies on and is supported by each of the other – integrated to meet and exceed the needs of the Alta Fuels customers.  The teamwork of the Alta businesses is evident in the reliance on shared facilities. The original facility in Alamosa, Colorado is home to a state of the art plant with rail car access and loading racks for petroleum transports; in addition to a warehouse for packaged lubricants, indoor storage tanks for bulk lubricants and a modern quality assurance laboratory where testing of fuel products is conducted by Alta’s full-time chemists.  The new (built in 2013) Alta Fuels facility in Pueblo West, CO houses a fuels terminal, loading rack, bulk lubricants, coolants and packaged lubricants warehouse and a test lab.  Both Alta Fuels plants feature maintenance garages with full-time mechanics on staff to service the 30 Alta Transportation 8,500 gallon tractor-transports and the five 4,500 gallon Alta bobtail delivery trucks.
