This appeal arises from a diversity action brought by Pennzoil Products Company ("Pennzoil") against, among others, Colelli & Associates, Inc. and Colelli Oil Well Services, Inc. (collectively "Colelli"). Colelli sold to crude oil producers in Ohio a solvent, which was designed to reduce the accumulation of wax in the shafts of oil wells. The oil producers sold the oil to refineries, one of which was Pennzoil's refinery in Pennsylvania. Pennzoil alleges that Colelli's solvent contained silicon and that the silicontainted oil caused damage to its refinery. The district court granted Colelli's motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction and certified its order for interlocutory appeal. Because we conclude that Pennsylvania's long-arm statute extends personal jurisdiction to Colelli and that the exercise of such jurisdiction complies with constitutional due process requirements, we will reverse and remand to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
