Company History

What makes Downey Energy stand out from other companies is that it has been family owned and operated since its founding in 1917. From management to service techs, there have been - and still are - Downey family members ready to serve you. Chances are, when you call, there will be a Downey in the office to take your call. And as a family business, our #1 goal is to treat you like a member of our family! 



Since the beginning, there has always been a Downey at the helm:

  • Jeremiah V. Downey founded the Downey Energy in 1917 and remained president until 1948.

  • Jeremiah R. Downey, who learned the ways of the business from his father, started in 1927 and was at the company until 1980.

  • Lawrence J. Downey began at Downey Energy in 1960 and today continues to oversee the company as president.

  • Cary J. Downey began his career when he was 18 in 1989 by delivering oil to customers. Cary currently holds the position of Vice President.
