From the Ground Up
B&M Oil was started in 1969 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, by Jim Beavers, a former sales engineer for Gulf’s light oils division. We opened our doors as Beavers Oil Company, marketing Gulf branded products. In 1977, Hal Musgrove, also a Gulf sales engineer, joined as a partner, and we incorporated as B&M Oil Company, adding several brands of fuels and lubricants. The company grew using a multi-brand approach to solving the needs of the growing industrial and automotive segments within the petroleum market.
Over the years, B&M Oil expanded across Oklahoma and Western Arkansas through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. At the same time, we began to offer specialized technical services and support to the PVL, CVL, Industrial, and Natural Gas Industries. Contracts with a large variety of brands allow B&M Oil to deliver the distinctive products and services our customers need to keep their businesses moving.
