We were established in 1982 by Brian and Paula Stidsen. After moving to the
town of Rutland from their home in Worcester, Brian saw the need for
a local oil company to serve his new friends and neighbors.
He then decided to start Sentry Oil.
In 2002, Brian and Paula’s son, Zach, began working for the family business. He started as an apprentice oil burner technician and oil truck driver, slowly learning the trade and what it entailed. Their other son, Nat, came to work for the company in 2007.
The Next Chapter
Over the years, both Zach and Nat have learned a lot about what it takes to run a small business. Zach is now a Vice President and Service Manager, while Nat is also a Vice President and Retail Fuel Manager. They are both excited about taking Sentry Oil into the next generation while maintaining the values that Brian and Paula have instilled in them since they were young.
