This month I'll be hosting Company Of The Month and my company of choice is Kerr-McGee/Deep Rock and their affiliates which include:
Kermac of Oklahoma City, OK acquired 1945
Triangle Refineries Houston,Tx acquired 1957
Southport Oil Corporation Houston,Tx
Mileage Mart Illinois 1959
Trackside Service Stations Gulfport,Ms 1962
Peoples Oil Company Nashville,Tn 1959
Wallace and Walco Atlanta,Ga
Mutual Oil Company Birmingham,Al 1985
Golden Rule St.Louis
Sparky-Triangle Brand operating in Alabama
Vaught Oil Company Flora,Il early 1960's
Power Oil Company Macon,Ga 1962
United Oil Company Cape Giradeau,Mo
Imperial Oil Sommerset,Ky
Tan-T-Kar Stations Birmingham,Al.
Coast Oil Company Shreveport,La

Kerr-McGee was founded by Robert S. Kerr and others in the Oklahoma City oil fields of Anderson-McGee Drilling in 1929. During the early years they operated a single gas station branded as Phillips 66 which closed during the gas rationing days of WWII. Prior to WWII Phillips geologists Dean McGee joined the company. In 1946 the corporate name was changed to Kerr-McGee. It was also the year that the company entered the retail market having bought Okalhoma City based Harrell Brothers, Yellow Cab gasoline trademark, and replaced it by the KerMac brand. In 1955 Deep Rock Oil Company was purchased. Deep Rock had been around since 1913. At the time of the merger Deep Rock brand appeared on over 1000 stations in 16 Mid-Continetal states. 1957 K-M acquired Triangle Refineries a primarily wholesale operation founded in Abbottsford,WI. in 1937. About this time K-M also bought out Knox Industries of Texas. The Knox brand survived into the 1960's. Thru Triangle KerMac was able to acquire several private brands including Peoples Oil and Milage Mart in 1959; Trackside and Wallace in 1962 along with Power Oil Company, Coast Oil Company and Tan-Kar. The K-M brand as a stand alone first appeared in Oklahoma City in 1965. K-M brand and logo eventually replaced Deep Rock and continues in use today.

This is a very brief histoy of K-M/Deep Rock and their affiliates.

A special Thank You goes to Scott Benjamin and Wayne Henderson. The information I have used comes from their book,Gas Globes A to M.


Since my collection is very big I am asking that everybody that has a related collectable to PLEASE post it for all to see
I will be posting my stuff through out the month
Thank You
Phoenix

Bob Kidney sent in these images of a very unusual globe. Thanks, Bob!

"Here is a Deep Rock Globe I got from a friend. Someone started to restore it, not sure what I will do with it yet. It is all metal with punched out holes for letters in good condition."
