28th Annual CASA Charity Golf Outing

Lykins Energy Solutions and Co-Sponsors, DigiMax Signs and Copper Blue Restaurant of Milford, come together every year to have a charity golf outing in September.
Last year the golf committee raised $75,000.00 for CASA. This year they raised $73,000.00.

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA gives an abused child in the foster system/court system an advocate to check on their well-being, their progress, check in on them at school and be in touch with their daily lives. The CASA advocate also goes to court for them or with them and speaks on their behalf based on what is in the best interest of that child. Neither a social worker, nor an attorney could give the child that kind of time or attention. CASA is a crucial component for an abused child especially with the growing heroin epidemic.

Lykins is proud to have raised over $660,000.00 for CASA over the last 18 years. Lykins wants to thank all of their customers, vendors and employee’s for participating and giving their hearts, time and money for their golf outing. Without them none of this would be possible.

CEO Talks Growth with the Cincinnati Enquirer

“Milford-based Lykins Oil Co. started selling oil to farmers 65 years ago.  Then the family business branched out into gasoline, electricity, propane and natural gas.

Today, Lykins sells petroleum products to gas stations and businesses in 15 states.  But like everything else, times change and updates are needed.”

Lykins Oil Company to Lykins Energy Solutions

Lykins Oil Company will change its name to Lykins Energy Solutions.  The new name reflects the company’s growth and the additional products and services it now provides.

Lykins has been in business since 1948. Oil and gas have always been the company’s focus and that will not change.  However, Lykins is much more than an oil company today.  Lykins supplies the region with a wide array of energy products and services. The company serves customers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, as well as throughout the Midwest and the Southeast United States and provides key services including: Branded Fuels, Wholesale Fuels, Commercial, Transportation and Home Heating Oil, Propane, Lubricants, Electricity and Natural Gas. The company represents six major brands: BP, Marathon, ExxonMobil, Shell, Gulf and Clark.

“We want to be known for all our energy products and that includes oil, gas, electric, natural gas, propane and lubes.  We even have our own Lykins Energy Fleet Card through Voyager now. Through several years of acquisitions and expanding our products and services, Lykins plans to double its size in the next five years,” says Jeff Lykins, Lykins Energy President.

Lykins name isn’t all that’s changing.  The company has a new logo that better reflects the company’s long and strong family heritage.  “The logo symbolizes three generations building a strong core of leaders within our community. The new logo incorporates three forward-facing triangles representing each generation of the Lykins family. We call this the Tricore,” says Lykins.  The company’s three generations include Guy “Bandy” Lykins” who led the company from 1948-1967, Don & Jr Lykins who led the company from 1967-1999, and Jeff Lykins, Ron Lykins and Bob Manning who are currently leading the company.

Lykins adds, “We have a new name and a new logo that truly reflects our journey as a company and the addition of many new energy products and services that we’ve added over the last number of years. Those newer services grew from the rich history and trust that three generation of Lykins family members built and our ongoing commitment to provide the best energy products and services available for the greatest value.”

“We know that energy is how people get to work each day. Energy is heat in the winter, comfort in the summer and it’s the light on the ball field.  Energy is what fuels industry, helps our community grow and improves our quality of life,” Lykins adds.

Lykins emphasizes, “Our company has always run toward challenges not away from them. We are authentic in every way. We have our nostalgic past that will remain in our future the way it should be. We are the company that won’t let our customers down; we want them to know they can count on us, no matter what.  Whether they’re residential or commercial customers, we want them to know we are still the company that they’ve known and trusted for more than 60 years to exceed their expectations through the generations.”

Lykins Energy Solutions is one of the 100 largest privately held companies in Ohio, and one of the top 10 largest Petroleum Marketing Companies in Ohio.  Lykins Companies (Now Lykins Energy Solutions) is one of the oldest and largest Petroleum Marketing Companies in the region and the nation.  Currently, Lykins employs 250 people.
