Sun Oil Company
1912–1947
John Pew, along with his younger brother Joseph Jr., took control of their father's company in 1912. The Pew brothers grew it from a small firm, with just a 0.9% share of the overall industrial production of oil, into the country's 15th largest oil refiner in 1941. Among the brother's achievements at Sun Oil was the construction of the 732-mile Susquehanna-Sun Oil pipeline.
