By the mid-1980s, the third generation of Breauxs – G.A. Breaux, Jr. and Leon “Buddy” Breaux, Jr. (pictured) – were at the helm of Lockport Oil and Tire Company and Breaux Oil Company, respectively. With each company’s established reputation in the lubricants industry, they decided to merge to form what is now the present-day Breaux Petroleum Products. During this time, the fourth generation, Leon “Bud” Breaux, III (son of Buddy), joined the company as its comptroller.
