In 1992, Murray J. Flegel founded Arlyn Enterprises Ltd. in Calgary, Alberta—which now trades under the name BOSS Lubricants. BOSS is an acronym for Bulk Oil Sales and Service, and is a symbol of Canadian pride and industry leadership.
Murray earned his expertise over 37 years of combined experience working for Texaco Canada Ltd. and Canadian Turbo Inc. Two years into the business, Murray brought W.K. (Bill) Dickson on as an equal partner. Another two years following their partnership, Murray and Bill made a strategic acquisition of a similar-sized competitor and, with a focus on efficiency, moved their combined operations to an upgraded facility.
