Learn More about Us

 
A.E. Robinson Oil Co. was established in 1950 by Alfred E. Robinson, the current president’s father. At first, the company only had one service truck to handle heating oil deliveries. In addition, the company also offered burner services to residential and commercial customers throughout the area.

Advancements in Technology

Advances in technology caused the company to advance as well. In 1970, James (Jim) Robinson, Sr. purchased the company from his father. At that time, we had two delivery trucks and two service trucks to handle the growing needs of our customers.

Jim, the president, and his two brothers who are now retired ran the company, while working in different areas of the business. As the company grew, it became more family based. Jim’s children, grandchildren, and nephews started working for the company.

Year-Round Business

In the 1980s, our company decided year-round service would set our business apart from other fuel companies. In order to meet the growing demands for the year-round services, A.E. Robinson Oil Co. purchased facilities, which were later converted to gas stations with convenience stores and delis.
 
 

A Costly Flood

In April of 1987, the flood of Piscataquis County caused the river to overflow the banks. When it reached 11.6’ above the flood stage, it filled the South Street office with 62” of water, which only caused minor damage, including paperwork and tools. The Main Street Mobil™ service station ended up losing two underground tanks. Unfortunately, our business took an entire year to replace the tanks and repair a local bridge.

A Growing Business

In December of 1993, we added a Dexter Oil office from RC Whitney to our esteemed list. This enabled the company to provide better services to people throughout the Penobscot County area. Just 11 years later, our fuel company outgrew the South Street office. This prompted us to move into the main office on W Main Street, which also houses a parts and lubricants warehouse and bulk propane storage tank. In 2005, A.E. Robinson Oil Co. purchased DW Cash Fuel in Greenville Junction, which helped us expand our service area. The office was used to deliver fuel and service heating equipment. Through the years, A.E. Robinson Oil Co. has added more service stations, which were converted into convenience stores. Now, the business owns a total of 10 convenience stores and gas stations.
