Discover Patten Oil Company
Founder and President, Mark Patten has over 25 years of experience in the home heating oil industry. Mark grew up in Attleboro, MA area and began his first oil company in the mid 1980’s as a fresh faced kid right out of college. Researching the market for well over a year, he sold everything he owned to purchase an old 1970 Ford oil truck that he hand painted and stenciled his name to -- and with that, Patten Oil was born.
Within several years, the business grew from one truck and just a handful of customers to a fleet of 5 trucks, 3 service vans and 12 employees who cheerfully serviced 22 towns in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, delivering #2 heating oil, kerosene and diesel fuel to a base of over 5000 customers.
Mark eventually sold his successful business to relocate to Vermont, and in October of 2005, Mark re-established Patten Oil in Rutland in an effort to provide its residents with a fresh new alternative in home heating care.
Mark and the entire staff at Patten Oil have an in depth knowledge of the industry. They provide attention to detail and friendly, personalized service to insure that Patten Oil can and will meet your home heating oil needs in this highly competitive market.
