It all started in Ohio. Sunoco was founded 27 March, 1886, when Newton Pew and Edward O.Emerson, partners in The Peoples Natural Gas Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, decided to diversify their business
Within a few years, the company had acquired oil pipelines, gas stations and storage tanks; profiling itself as one of Ohio´s leading crude oil suppliers.
In 1920, the first gas station was opened in Ardmore, Pennsylvania and another in Toledo, Ohio. Later on, in 1922, the company name was changed to Sun Oil Company and in 1925 the company was listed on the New York stock market for the very first time.
During the 1950´s Sun Oil Company expanded. Firstly, it brandched out into Canada in 1953, setting the refinery of Sarnia, with a capacity of producing 15.000 drums per day. Then, in 1957, Sun Oil Company started its activity in Venezuela, reaching production of more than a billion drums before being nationalized nationalization by the Venezuelan government in 1975.
