A Proud History

Phillips Energy, Inc. was founded in 1946 by L. Frank Phillips Sr. in Gloucester County as L.F. Phillips & Sons, Inc. At that time, the company sold heating fuels, gasoline and motor oils. L. Frank Phillips, Jr. acquired ownership in the late 1960s. With the purchase of Tidewater Oil Co., the business expanded its service area into Mathews County. In the early 1990s, Mr. Phillips' children, John Phillips and Elizabeth McCormick, joined the business. They expanded the company, purchased J.C. Brown Oil Co. and shortly thereafter changed its name to Phillips Energy, Inc. 

Over the last 25 years, Phillips Energy has added a propane gas distribution division, a propane appliance installation and service division. Additionally, Phillips Energy now has three locations; Gloucester, Mathews and New Kent Counties 

In late 2009, the company added a 24-hour fueling facility including alternative fuels with a vision of fueling the future. Located at 2586 George Washington Memorial Highway in Hayes, this retail facility offers convenient fueling for the general public and private fleets.
