In the fall of 2013, Peter Garthwaite decided to invest more time in his recycling business and sold Garthwaite Oil to our new President, Tom Carey. Tom has been a resident of York County for over 30 years and has been in the heating oil business for 37 years.
Since Tom took over, the company has grown dramatically. We got into the propane business and since then, the company quadrupled in size. We built a garage in Wells to house the fuel delivery trucks, store service parts, and to accommodate our growing number of service technicians. A state of the art 30,000 gallon propane storage facility was installed at the garage for better efficiency.
Garthwaite also outgrew our original office space on Post Road, so we bought a newer and larger office building three miles down Route 1.
Tom still resides in York County with his wife and four children.
