The History of Ocean State Oil

Ocean State Oil began as Warwick Hydraulics in 1973 when Dan Bell started his first business selling lubricants and a full line of hydraulic hoses and fittings out of a 20 foot garage. Dan's father, Jack Bell, joined the company in 1982 and in 1987 Ocean State Oil was born. In 1996 the company relocated to our present state of the art facility in a historic Quonset-style warehouse building in the Quonset Business Park.

Since August of 2012, Ocean State Oil is now part of Total Energy, LLC, one of the Santoro family of companies that include Santoro Oil and The Gas Doctor in Rhode Island; ckSmithSuperior in Massachusetts and Domestic Fuels and Lubes in Virginia and North Carolina.
