Middletown Helps Hightowers Petroleum
Expand Around the World

Middletown has served as the center of the universe for the Hightower family. Since 1957 the Hightower family has served the community and region with commercial and residential services. With the emergence of the second and third generations of the family-based, privately-held business, remaining in Middletown has the home office is a passionate decision by the Hightower family.

The evolution of Hightowers Petroleum Company, incorporated in 1984, was part of the innovative forward thinking of Stephen L. Hightower. He leveraged the experiences of the original company, “Hightowers Janitorial Service” started by Yudell Hightower, which was sold in 1983. The family businesses have sold products and services in several countries around the world and in most states across the country.

Steve Hightower developed its first petroleum-related contract with BP Oil, whose support of Hightowers Petroleum Company as a “contract carrier for BP”, provided the basis for Hightowers Petroleum Company to enter the industry. This began the process of becoming a viable force in the petroleum industry.

Today, Hightowers Petroleum Company provides fluid management services to companies throughout the United States. Their customer base includes public utilities, automotive companies, casino river boats, highway contractors and other commercial wholesale buyers. Those services include delivering diesel fuel, unleaded gasoline, lubricants, oils and greases as a baseline.

The innovative process that sets the Hightowers organization apart from the traditional “licensed motor fuel dealers” is a robust E-commerce system, a national distribution network, remote tank monitoring, environmental compliance, fixed asset/operator, Master Card Feet Cards and more.

Ninety nine percent of the business Hightowers provides is outside of Middletown. However, the management maintains that this is a great location in which to operate. Interstate access, five major airport options, and two-hour access to six major cities are all positive business considerations in evaluating our location,” Hightower said.

The philosophy of the management is that “if you provide quality services and know how to do good business, someone in this world will do business with you. Middletown has been a great place to raise a family, has great churches, a great foundation for education both institutional and business, and it shall remain the center of our universe.”

The Middletown Economic Development Corporation, directed by Larry Wood, has proven to be a valuable asses to many companies who seek professional assistance in their development and expansion efforts. MEDC works to retain business in the city, and to provide consultative services to Middletown-area businesses.
