Stocker Oil Co. Inc. is a real American dream.
Stocker Oil Co. Inc. began in June of 1940. Theodore Stocker, 16 years old at the time, bought Tenny's Oil Company from Richland Trandella for $45. Ted started off selling kerosene fuel for lamps and stoves by two-gallon increments at a store. Later on, Ted started deliveries, mostly for 10 gallons at a time. With this, Tenny's Oil Company became Teddy's Oil Service. In December of 1940, World War II was beginning and Ted enlisted into the Navy. Deferred until 1941, Ted kept working to improve the oil company. With no plans for the company, Ted gave his customers to Perley Burrill (not the same Perley Burrill who is in business today). When Ted returned in 1946 Perley gave the company back to Ted, along with many more customers as Perley had expanded since he left.
During the 1960s Teddy incorporated the business and changed the name to Stocker Oil Inc. He bought an oil truck with pump and Stocker Oil has been making home deliveries ever since. In 1975 Ted sold the business to his son, Richard Stocker, after he had graduated from Northeastern University. Richard has taken the small company seed planted by his father and grown a successful garden.
We hope to continue this growth, and still offer that small company hospitality and respect our customers have experienced for nearly 70 years. Stocker Oil Co. Inc. is a full-service company offering automatic delivery, heating system installations and service, air conditioning installations and service, and a 24-hour, 7 days a week commitment to our customers.
