Company Overview

Jacobus Energy has been providing quality petroleum products and innovative fueling services for more than 85 years.In the 1920's, Jacobus Energy sold fuel and building products under the name of "Wauwatosa Fuel & Supply."

Today
Jacobus Energy offers innovative fueling solutions and associated services for homes and businesses throughout the Midwest and South

Founded in 1919 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the company has supplied homes and businesses with a variety of fuels throughout the years, including wood, coal, coke and petroleum products.

Taking advantage of the building boom that followed World War II, Jacobus Energy entered into a period of strong growth that has continued into the present.

In the 1950s & 1960s, the company's heating oil division, Quickflash Heating and Cooling Services, emerged as one of the largest suppliers of home heating oil in the state of Wisconsin. Quickflash continues to be the region's "home heating oil expert," servicing both oil and gas-heated homes.

In the mid-80's, Jacobus introduced automated fueling for commercial fleets, and a new division, Quick Fuel, was founded. In the years that followed, Quick Fuel quickly expanded, and now serves thousands of businesses throughout the Midwest and South with a variety of fueling solutions.
