MOBILE, AL – Locally-owned Aaron Oil Company, Inc. celebrated its 35th Anniversary on Friday, August 5, 2016 at the GulfQuest Maritime Museum in Mobile, Alabama. RSA and GulfQuest helped Aaron Oil commemorate this special occasion by lighting their buildings in downtown Mobile, in red on Friday, August 5th.

Aaron Oil founder and CEO Daniel Cowart stated: “A dear friend of mine called me a few weeks ago and told me he felt led to encourage us to celebrate all that we have accomplished. I also believe it is very important to be thankful and celebrate all that God has done for us, and so I wanted to include all of our employees as well as their family members in celebrating what Aaron Oil has become through our hard work and how we have been blessed over the past 35 years. We decided to hold our celebration at Gulf Quest because our Company has such a close connection to the gulf coast and the maritime industry.”
