WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1957

Varouh Oil, Inc. was founded in 1957 by George Varouh, father of current President Ronald Varouh and Vice President Ari Varouh and Grand Father of the current Corporate Secretary and General Manager Mark Varouh, George started Varouh Oil, Inc. through his relationship during war time employment at American Radiator working with a Canadian engineer by the name of Reginald W. Beckett, after the war ended R.W. Beckett formed a corporation in Elyria, OH and asked George to work with him to develop an oil burner to convert coal furnaces to oil burning furnaces. After much trial and error they came up with a very proficient oil burner and George was the installation manager and he was converting 5 coal furnaces to oil burning furnaces a day. All of the new oil furnaces needed oil companies to supply them with fuel oil so George was familiar with all the various oil suppliers in the area. When Gulf Oil Corp. needed a new distributor in the area the salesman asked George if he would be interested and he formed his present corporation which has continued to today.

Where We Started

In the beginning, Varouh Oil was strictly a branded jobber, carrying petroleum products from lines such as Gulf, Chevron, and Citgo, but realized that customers needed quicker solutions to their industrial lubrication needs. Lead times on orders for industrial lubricants and commercial oils could be weeks to months, so Varouh Oil explored the needs of tribology (blending products under private label) to ensure that our customers’ needs could be addressed in a timely, cost-effective manner. Varouh Oil, with the help of base industrial oil suppliers and additive chemists (tribologists), was able to team up and begin blending, but with much lower overhead. This resulted in savings for our customers and quick results.

We’ve been in our current location in Elyria, Ohio since 1960, and are committed to serving Northern Ohio with petroleum products. We proudly serve the farmers who feed America, municipalities, manufacturing companies, and more!
