Byron Originals Inc. has purchased Wildcat Fuels and will immediately begin production and shipping.

Byron announced the acquisition Oct. 9 via a press release.

“I would like to thank all those modelers who have chosen Wildcat over the years,” said Jerry Conley, who founded Wildcat Fuels in 1992. “I elected to sell Wildcat Fuels so I could devote more time to full-scale air show performing. It was important to me to select the best blender to take over my operation and no one shares my high values like Byron Originals. Byron is sure to continue the Wildcat tradition and is in a perfect position to strengthen the line and to assure modelers continued availability of the quality products and service they have come to rely upon from the Wildcat brand.”

Said Byron COO Ryan Godbersen: “Adding the Wildcat line will assure modelers of not just one strong line from Byron Originals, but two. It is our goal to continue to produce both lines as they have been produced in the past. Future Wildcat Fuel products will enjoy the added benefit from our unequalled R&D efforts. This is a win-win situation for both lines and for all modelers who have appreciated quality fuels.”

Dealers interested in carrying Wildcat Fuels should order through their regular distribution channels, according to the release, or contact Byron at (712) 364-3164 or for more information.
