In 1960 Elmer O. Bridgman started selling Standard oil products as a commissioned agent in Mt. Hope, Kansas. In 1964 Standard Oil Company was transferred to Elmer Bridgman in Burrton expanding his sales territory. In 1976 Standard Oil sold Elmer Bridgman the business where he started Bridgman Oil selling petroleum products as an Amoco jobber. In 1977, the Hutchinson location was purchased and the office was established there.
Today, the Hutchinson office handles all the accounting functions and dispatching of trucks. Bridgman Oil also offers three Cardtrol stations located in the following cities: Hutchinson, Burrton, and Pleasantview. The Cardtrol system allows our customers to have self-serve fuel 24/7. Our Hutchinson and Burrton locations have bulk facilities for refined fuels, as well as a warehouse for oils and lubricants. This allows for prompt delivery of those products to all of our customers. Our Hutchinson location is the primary storage facility for propane. We are also proud to be the Reno County Exxon Mobil distributor along with a distributor for Baldwin Filters and Mean Green cleaner and degreaser.
