Newton Oil, a Lafayette-based petroleum company is celebrating 45 years in business. The Newton Family has been involved with the petroleum business for over 60 years with the patriarch of the family, Cliff Newton, starting with Standard Oil Company in 1961 in the small town of Dayton, IN serving Tippecanoe and surrounding counties. Newton also provided local farmers and residents with gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, lubricants, and fertilizer.
Newton started as a one-truck operation and eventually purchased Newton Oil’s original location on Wilson Street in Lafayette, IN from the Standard Oil Company in 1976. The business has been family-owned ever since.
Newton Oil Company has expanded its services to farming, transportation, manufacturing, services, grain operations, and racing fuel to the entire Midwest and beyond. To learn more about Newton Oil, services offered and employment opportunities, visit their website at www.newtonoil.com
