Our Story

Davis Oil was established by J. Earl Davis in 1926, originally as Davis Coal & Oil. We remained with our former name until the late 1940’s when the coal division was sold, and we officially became the Davis Oil we’re known as today. Davis Oil was headed by Richard Walsh (the husband of Earl’s daughter Jane) from the mid-1950’s until 1989. From 1989 to the present time Davis Oil is now in our third generation of leadership.

At Davis Oil we would like our customers to feel like they’re part of one big family, and to be confident in knowing that Davis Oil is dedicated to providing the best customer service possible. We pledge to continue our commitment to maintaining a personal relationship with our customers, who are the driving force behind our steady growth and success.

Davis Oil will remain a friendly, familiar face when called on for service. We will strive to insure prompt, attentive customer service by only providing after-hours service to our oil buying customers.

    Once in a while a business deserves a BIG pat on the back when it exceeds what is expected in regards to services rendered… That business is Davis Oil of Keene NH!! From the first encounter with Dick and Jane Walsh back in the 60’s, we have had nothing but terrific and timely responses for oil delivery or for any problems that might have arisen. at our business or residence …. It’s not often that a family can continue to carry on the traditions that built a company into the successful one that Davis Oil is …. But … we have that same confidence with Peter and Steven Walsh and Dixie Cote at the helm as we did so many years ago. Well Done!! Keep up the good work!
