A typical gas station stores 30,000 to 40,000 gallons of fuel in its underground storage tanks.
Now imagine if there occurs a leak in one of the tanks, and the fuel stored inside the tank is released into the environment…Or an accidental spill occurs…
It could result in a potentially devastating scenario! Continue reading

The following message has been reproduced from an email notification received from Tuthill at 10AM on 9/13/2018
“As residents and businesses throughout the Southeast prepare for the onslaught of Hurricane Florence, Tuthill Transfer Systems is focusing its attention on these customers. We have increased our manufacturing output and over the next 5 to 10 days we will prioritize service to those customers who are directly impacted by this storm. With this focus, we will be increasing our lead time on other order 2 to 4 days.
Our customer service team will work with channel partners on identifying and prioritizing existing and new orders to most efficiently serve this region. While we understand that this may inconvenience customers outside of the storm’s path, we believe without question that this is the most appropriate and necessary way to manage our service and dedication to customers.
We appreciate your support and please join us in keeping the Southeast in our thoughts in coming days.”

We also invite you to review our 2 hurricane preparation blog posts from earlier this year with tips on how to prepare your location to minimize storm damage such as shrink wrapping your pumps and dispensers so any pump top signage, hoses and nozzles remain securely in place with minimal (hopefully, NO) water ingress to your equipment :
The John W. Kennedy Company prays for everyone’s safety and well being in the region as the storm passes through!
California and Prop65
Proposition 65, formally titled The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act was passed overwhelming by Californians in 1986 to allow them to make informed choices about their exposure to listed chemicals that may cause cancer and birth defects.
So with that said, several manufacturers have already started placing warnings on those products that contain any of the chemicals listed while others are placing the warning on every product regardless of its chemical composition (a very CYA move and why not in this day and age of constant litigation!).
This process of placing a notice at the product level started after the launch of our eCommerce site when we already had thousands of products listed. You can see a product detail page from our web store below that shows where you may find the Prop65 Warning:
So we could get this notice listed quickly on all products, we have a mechanism in our system to provide a link to the CA Prop65 Warning website under the Resources tab towards the bottom of all product detail pages on the johnwkennedyco.com website. We will continue to add the actual warning to product detail pages when that information is made apparent by the manufacturers as to which exact products they sell that fall under Prop65.
Please feel free to visit the CA Prop65 Warning website to learn more about the law and more importantly, which chemicals are listed that could affect you and your family!
The John W. Kennedy Company appreciates your business and continued support!
