Lozier Oil was founded in 1962 when Marvin Lozier bought the former Bridgestock Oil from Walter Bridgestock in Farmington. Marvin became a Mobil Oil consignee, and started the business with a single fuel truck, a small warehouse building with several bulk fuel tanks and a base of customers. Marvin's first customers were farmers and gas stations. Mobil changed the consignee program to distributorships and Lozier Oil Company was born. Gas, heating oils, diesel fuels and automotive oils were sold and his business grew to include area manufacturers and businesses throughout the Central Illinois area.
In 1984, Marvin formed a partnership with his son, Marty. The next five years brought incredible growth with the decision to move into repackaging bulk oil for Mobil. Lozier Oil's growth included the addition of buildings and large bulk storage tanks with a bulk pumping system as well as semi transports to haul bulk oil and fuels to the bulk plant. The business was growing at a phenomenal rate when Marvin died suddenly in 1989.
Marty joined Marge in a partnership to continue the Lozier Oil tradition. Marty serves as President of the company and has guided its operations as it has grown into a company with over 200,000 gallons of bulk oil storage and a client list that includes a large number of Fortune 500 companies, area businesses and manufacturers as well as those in our local communities. Marge serves as Secretary-Treasurer and still works daily at Lozier Oil in the office handling the administrative side of the business. Together, they continue to build on Marvin's vision to build a successful company by providing excellent products and outstanding service for every customer.
