J.W. Pierson Co. was founded in 1888 by James Topping Pierson of Westfield, NJ. He owned and operated a green grocer business in Wesfield, NJ but with two sons he purchased land in East Orange, NJ at 89 Dodd Street to establish one of his sons, James W. Pierson, in the concrete business. James W. Pierson operated the concrete business until his early death left the business to be run by the named trustee, Savings Investment and Trust. James T. Pierson, the son of James W. Pierson and a graduate of the Hill School, PA was able to take back family control of the business from the Trustee at the age of 20 following two years of employment at Tompkins Products, a building supply business, in Newark, NJ. James T. Pierson continued to run the concrete business and added other building supplies as well as coal sales. He operated the business through the depression until his son James W. Pierson (current President) entered in the mid 1950’s following service in World War II and upon graduation from Amherst College.

J.W. Pierson phased out the building supply business and started selling heating and motor fuels and created a service and an installation department. Throughout his tenure he has acquired numerous smaller companies who sold coal, fuels and service and acquired the supply yard located on Midland Avenue in East Orange, NJ.

The J.W Pierson Company continues to sell fuels and service in the Essex, Union, Middlesex, Passaic and Bergen markets – always keeping an eye on new products and services to bring to the energy consumer.
