Harris Oil: From Day One
With a table in the cellar for an office and a cap off an old Chevy pickup for a workshop, Jim and Anna Harris were ready to start their new adventure together. On November 8, 1986 they made their first fuel delivery for 72 cents a gallon. Boy, have times changed. With the help of good friends Charlie and Kay Mathews and a lot of hard work and dedication, Harris Oil became a great success.
Only after a few years and the business continuing to grow, Jim and Anna could no longer do it alone. Gary Gonia was hired to help Jim with the delivery routes. Just a short time later, Bonnie Richards was added to the Harris Oil Family to help Anna in the office. Gary and Bonnie have played a large roll in the success of Harris Oil. Bonnie remains a part of the Harris Oil team.
In the early 2000's, Jim and Anna passed away leaving the business to their four children. Harris Oil continues to serve their community with dependable, hometown, quality service under the ownership of Paul Harris and Melissa Mills. Our business is always expanding and updating to serve our customers better.
In recent years, Mike Barse has joined our team to deliver fuel. Harris Oil has also expanded our service department team. Nick Smith, Jim Black, and Rick Tucker are available for anything from boiler clean and tunes to new installs. Harris Oil's transports are driven by Mike Bonville and Jim Farmer. Our transport runs daily to make sure our customers are provided with competitive pricing and reliability.
We have recently expanded our services to flatbed deliveries with the help of Zach Snyder and Kaden Barney. To meet the growing needs of our customers, we have Bonnie Richards and Abby Gordon ready to take your call.
A special thanks goes out to our loyal customers and dedicated team. You are greatly appreciated!
