Delta Fuel Establishes Natchez, Mississippi, Corporate Headquarters

08/16/2021
Delta Fuel will invest $2.75 million to locate its corporate headquarters in Natchez, Mississippi. The project is expected to create 54 jobs.

The company is locating in the former Callon Petroleum building in downtown Natchez.

“Delta Fuel is excited about moving to downtown Natchez. The recent purchase of two historical buildings and improvements show our commitment to the growth and betterment of this community. We are excited about playing a role in the continued growth of Natchez. We will continue to provide the same superior level of customer service to our customers that we have for over 50 years,” Delta Fuel President Adam Vegas said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building improvements. MDA also has certified Delta Fuel through the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is available for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands. The city of Natchez and Adams County also are assisting with the project.

“Mississippians are some of the best workers in the nation, and companies like Delta Fuel continually cite our workforce as a top reason for locating or expanding in our state. MDA thanks the team at Delta Fuel for choosing to locate its corporate headquarters and more than 50 new jobs in Natchez, while simultaneously bringing new life to an existing downtown facility. We thank our partners at Natchez, Inc., the city of Natchez and Adams County for their hard work in bringing this project full circle,” MDA Executive Director John Rounsaville noted.

Serving the Mississippi and Louisiana markets, Delta Fuel is a licensed distributor of propane, gas, diesel and lubricants for a variety of industries, including agriculture, construction, energy and residential.

“We couldn’t be happier to see Delta Fuel continue to grow in our region by locating their headquarters in downtown Natchez. This was a competitive process where the company looked at multiple options across multiple states, and we are thankful for all of our partners’ assistance in this win and of the faith Delta Fuel is placing in our region, as well as the investment and new jobs to our area. A remarkable company, with remarkable people, employing people with high-paying jobs. They are another anchor tenant, and the success of the region is phenomenal,” noted Natchez, Inc. Executive Director Chandler Russ.
