As the winter of 2004-2005 came to a close, Jamie Oil had a decision to make. Do we stay another year in the cramped quarters in South Framingham, or do we get more space to accommodate a growing operation?
“I never thought we would outgrow this office, but it happened,” said then Jamie Oil office manager Barbara Foisy. With additional space not available on Park Street in Framingham, the company decided to move to 171 Main Street in Ashland. “The new location offers expanded quarters for our staff, and a better parking situation for our customers and employees,” added Foisy. “If you are looking for us, we will now be situated in the Ashland Professional Building, directly behind John Stone’s Public House.”
The Ashland location worked well with Jamie Oil’s most recent addition – acquiring Ed and Al’s Oil Service in September of 2004. Most of Ed and Al’s customer base is located in Ashland, and Jamie Oil’s growing distribution in Hopkinton and surrounding towns has contributed to the decision to move to Ashland. “We will always be a Framingham area company.” said JOC president Tom Carey.
