Highline Warren Acquires Sapp Bros. DEF Division

Strengthens position and national footprint in rapidly growing diesel exhaust fluid category.


Highline Warren, a leader in manufacturing and distribution of automotive maintenance products, has acquired the assets of the Sapp Bros. diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) division. Sapp Bros. is a leading regional DEF provider from its Omaha, Nebraska, facility. DEF is an essential ingredient that works to remove impurities from modern diesel exhaust systems, resulting in cleaner emissions and improved fuel economy.


“We are excited to add the Sapp. Bros. DEF division to Highline Warren,” said Darcy Curran, CEO of Highline Warren. “Diesel exhaust fluid is a rapidly growing category and a priority for our customers and our company. We look forward to leveraging Sapp’s capabilities and relationships to better serve our customers throughout our unique national platform for liquids manufacturing and distribution. I welcome Sapp Bros. DEF employees and customers to the Highline Warren family.”

Andrew Richard, Sapp Bros. CEO, added, “This transaction allows Sapp Bros. to focus on its core travel center and wholesale petroleum business. Highline Warren is a world-class manufacturer and distributor, which makes it an ideal home for Sapp’s DEF division, its employees and our DEF customers. We have had a long and trusted relationship with the Highline Warren team, and we look forward to remaining a long-term customer of Highline Warren in DEF and other categories.”


Anthony Cardona, principal at Pritzker Private Capital, added, “This acquisition strengthens Highline Warren’s capabilities in an important category for the company and its customers. We are pleased to continue our partnership with Darcy and the entire Highline Warren team as they continue to execute on their acquisition strategy.”

Memphis-based Highline Warren joined Pritzker Private Capital’s family of companies in November 2020. Acquiring the Sapp Bros. DEF division marks Highline Warren’s seventh acquisition since 2016. Highline Warren will continue to pursue both organic and acquisition-related growth strategies.
