About Us


We are a full service petroleum products distributor serving North & South Carolina

Humble Beginnings


J.T. Alexander and Son, Inc., proudly offers quality Shell, BP, Amoco, Union 76, and All-Star fuels. It 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 regional convenience store owner and operator, as well as a major regional supplier of quality petroleum products through North and South Carolina.


John T. Alexander founded J.T. Alexander and Son, Inc. in 1935 after buying a Texaco commission agency, located in Mooresville, NC.


J.T. Alexander 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, BP, Amoco, Union 76, and All-Star brands.


David Alexander joined his father, Tom, in the organization in 1994. David, a graduate of the College of Charleston, is a third generation family owner and succeeded his father; and in 2010, David acquired J. T. Alexander and Son, Inc.

Endless Possibilities

Since we first began, we have worked to bring our clients the fuel they need, when they need it. But we also deliver something more than gasoline, we deliver quality, and, it means going the extra mile to provide exceptional service.

From a small Texaco agency & single delivery truck to a regional petroleum product distributor, J. T. Alexander and Son, Inc. remains a family owned business and we are fueled by a desire to treat our customers like members of the family. We look forward to doing the same for you.

From a small Texaco agency and single delivery truck, to convenience stores and petroleum product distribution and transportation throughout North and South Carolina, we have expanded to meet your needs!
