Martin Oil Company was founded in 1962 as George O. Martin and Sons, Inc.. George O. purchased a small Tidewater distributorship in Bellwood, Pennsylvania. He was soon joined by his three sons, and the business began a long period of expansion. Now in our fourth generation, we're still family owned and operated.
In the 1980s, Martin Oil Company ventured into convenience stores. First locations were called MinitMarts. The name "Martin General Stores" was adopted in 1991. We now supply locations that we own, plus many independent stores and stations. Many retail locations are branded with the blue and gold Martin Gold Star sign.
Over fifty years after our founding, Martin Oil Company continues to grow, serving thousands of customers. There are Martin Oil Company offices in Blair, Cambria, and Huntingdon counties, with deliveries extending to many areas beyond.
