Our History

Maynard Graffam Senior Cira 1946

In 1946, E. Maynard Graffam Sr. and his partners formed parent company Penobscot Bay Ice Co., Inc.  The business consisted of cutting ice on Lily Pond and delivering it to the residents of Rockport.  Several years later, the company diversified and added Pen-Bay Oil Co. to deliver home heating oil to the residents of Rockport and surrounding towns.  Upon the death of Maynard in 1969, his sons Jim and Sandy carried on in the tradition of their father with a strong commitment to serving the community.

Since that time, Pen-Bay Oil has grown to include burner service and installations, LP deliveries and service, Bio-Fuel, and K-1 Kerosene.  In 1980 Penobscot Bay Ice Co., Inc. added Coastal Fuel Co. as a sister company to Pen Bay Oil to service the residents of Rockland and surrounding communities.

Penobscot Bay Ice Co., Inc. continues on as a family business today with Jim at the helm and the late Sandy's daughter Kim carrying on the traditions as a third generation Graffam.
