Welcome to The Kent Companies Web Site!
The Kent Companies have been making West Texans lives easy since 1957. The roots of this family-owned business trace back to the 1930's during the great depression, when E. L. "Buck" Kent, The Company's founder, got his chance in the refining business by going to work for Mr. William B. Hassett, the owner of Wickett Refining Company, in the tiny West Texas town of Wickett. From this humble beginning as a railcar traffic clerk for Wickett Refining, Buck Kent went on to become president of the company, a major stockholder, and eventually founder of Kent Oil and Kent Distributors in 1957. Today, The Kent Companies still operate with the same attitude and spirit that made Buck such a success – hard work, dedication to our customers and employees, and a never ending drive to be the best. The Kent Companies are now led and owned by the second generation, Bill Kent, Buck's youngest son. Being named after Mr. Hassett, the founder of Wickett refining gives Bill the added incentive to continue this long standing West Texas legacy. From this beginning in 1957, the Kent family of companies has grown to include Kent Lubrication Centers, Arizona Kent Lubrication Centers, Inc., Professional Lube Management, Inc., Wescon Management Group, Inc., K F Financial, LLC, Kent Tire Company and Team Kent Motorsports. All of these companies work together in making our customers' lives easy!
