Started in February 1945 by Alexander J. Rossee, his two sons Percy and Jobie and daughter Lucy Webb, Rossee Oil Company is a family owned business that has been part of the Putnam County community since 1945. Since that year, five generations have served over 65 years to withhold the solid reputation of the company.
M.S. “June” Rainey, Jr., grandson of A.J. Rossee, started working for Rossee Oil in 1946 and bought into the company in the 1950’s. In 1976, WIlliam “Bill” C. Rainey, June’s son started working with his father. Bill and his father worked to expand business by implementing a 24-hour card fueling system for truck fleets, manufacturing hydraulic hoses, building a new warehouse and adding a larger retail operation – The Clothing Depot, which provided work wear clothing and outdoor goods and equipment to the Lake Country community from 1998 – 2018.
In 2001, Bill Rainey and his wife, Robin, purchased Rossee Oil Co. and have since expanded to four additional locations. Rossee manages additional facilities in Sandersville, Moultrie, Swainsboro and Wrightsville, Georgia. Bill and Robin, along with their three sons, Cooper, Mac and Ross, continue to bring the same quality of service that customers have come to expect for nearly 75 years. In addition to the Rainey family, the company employs 20-plus employees.
Here at Rossee Oil Co., we feel that we operate as a privilege in the communities where we are located, not a right. We promote volunteering and encourage employees to take active roles in the communities we serve.
Today, Rossee Oil Co. consists of five bulk facilities with warehouses totaling 31,500 square feet, bulk oil storage consisting of 27 tanks totaling over 100,000 gallons , and diesel and gasoline storage of over 348,000 gallons. This means the products that you want are on hand and in excellent condition, waiting to be delivered when you need them.
