Wallis Companies History
Wallis Companies was established in 1968 when Bill Wallis purchased a small gasoline distributor in Cuba, Missouri. Now more than four decades later, the company has grown to be one of the leading petroleum marketers in the Midwest. When Lynn and Bill Wallis started Wallis Companies, they founded it with a bold mission in mind — to be the best gasoline retailer and the best employer everywhere the company operates. Today, Wallis is proud of the more than 600 employees and thousands of customers who trust Wallis’ exceptional quality and service.
Wallis Companies distributes gasoline under the major brand names of Mobil, BP, Conoco and Phillips stations in eastern, central, and southern Missouri. Wallis company operated stores offer conveniences such as food service, gourmet coffee, ATMs, Speedpass and touch-free car washes.
In addition to distributing gasoline, Wallis Companies operates Wallis Lubricants, a wholesale distributor developing customized lubrication solutions for industrial, automotive, metalworking and commercial business. Wallis Companies also owns and operates Wallis Transport, a gasoline transportation division, and Great River Wash, a car wash distributorship that provides service, equipment, supplies, training and expertise to local car wash operators.
Lynn Wallis took over the position of President and CEO in March 2001 after her husband Bill died. Their children Jason, Chad, Adam, and Rachel & Thomas Andreasson are actively involved in the company.
