The Telfer Sheldon Oil Co was founded in 1946. Jack the founder worked for Shell Oil Company in Martinez, a small town in Northern California that played host to a great industrial expansion due to the proximity of shipping and rail services. At Shell, Jack was involved in product research and development. The 1950s and 1960s were boom times for CaliforniaÂâ€Ã¢„¢s construction industry and in 1958; Jack had purchased Blomquist tank lines and eventually changed the name to Telfer Tank Lines.
