Whitaker Oil is a Fourth-generation Family-owned Chemical and Composite Materials Distributor

It all started in Atlanta in 1923 with a single gas pump and a mission to provide motor fuels and oils, along with the highest quality service, to independent retailers and service stations. Since then, through a rare four generations of family ownership, Whitaker Oil has grown and diversified our offerings to meet the changing times and needs of customers. But our commitment to service excellence has remained exactly the same.

Today, we proudly offer our customers a wide range of chemical and composite material products and services from our facilities in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. Whether their needs entail solvents, resins, custom blending or bulk storage, every Whitaker customer benefits from our lengthy industry experience, technology investments and promise to always do the right thing. At Whitaker, fairness and honesty aren't just core values; they’re a way of life.
