About JTA

Our Promise

J. T. Alexander and Son, Inc. was founded with a promise to our customers to deliver quality petroleum industry products at a competitive price in a timely manner. This promise has allowed us to expand beyond the county lines of Iredell County, North Carolina to become a major regional supplier of quality petroleum products through North and South Carolina..

Our History

John T. Alexander founded J. T. Alexander and Son, Inc. in 1935 after he bought a Texaco commission agency in Mooresville, NC. He was joined by his son, Tom Alexander, in 1961 after Tom returned from UNC Chapel Hill and the U.S. Navy.

In 1978, J. T. Alexander and Son, Inc. became a Texaco distributor serving the Piedmont of North Carolina. Since then, JTA has expanded into a major marketing presence in both North and South Carolina with the Shell and BP brands.
