Back in July 1986, two business partners, Dr. Alvaro Lebrija and Robert C. Kusenberger Sr. acquired Westex Petroleum of Del Rio. Westex then acquired Pico Propane and Fuels. This was done with the intent of becoming a leader throughout West and Central Texas in fuel distribution.
Since the word “PICO” in Spanish means ‘beak of a bird’, the group adopted our now-famous Toucan as our company mascot!
In August 2015, Meritum Energy Holdings, LP. acquired Pico Petroleum from Westex Capital. It continues to operate under the name Pico Propane and Fuels.
