Mirabito, president and CEO of the Mirabito Family of Cos., in the article. “This acquisition reinforces our current footprint while allowing us new opportunities. We’re extremely grateful to all our associates who continue to make a difference to our customers, and we look forward to serving in these new locations shortly.”

In connection with the purchase of Warren Equities Inc., continued the article, Global Partners is divesting a group of “nonstrategic” sites the company acquired in January 2015.
