MOBIL REOPENS TWO SOUTH CENTRAL STATIONS AS PART OF $5.5 MILLION EFFORT IN L.A.
FAIRFAX, Va., Aug 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation today reopened two service stations destroyed by fire during the riots in South Central Los Angeles in April of 1992. The two stations complete a $5.5 million investment the company made in South Central Los Angeles over the past year to reopen its service stations. Of 52 Mobil stations damaged or destroyed, 48 were repaired or rebuilt by Mobil. Reopening ceremonies attended by city, county and state officials were held this morning at the two stations. Most of the construction work on the two rebuilt stations was done by minority contractors. "We moved quickly after the civil unrest to repair and rebuild our stations because we want to be there and we want to grow there," said Ken Strong, West Coast sales manager. "The service stations and the products and jobs they provide are vital to the rebirth of South Central Los Angeles." Mobil also announced that its service station dealers this year will again raise money for LIFE, an organization with food distribution and job training programs for South Central Los Angeles. Last year, Mobil and its dealers raised over $300,000 for LIFE's activities. -0- 8/12/93 /CONTACT: John Lord, 703-846-2500, of Mobil/ (MOB)
