About MWT back to Homepage


Midwest Terminal was purchased from Texaco in 1986 by Jim Smith to vertically integrate supply needs of commonly owned ventures in the construction, railroad, limestone quarry, and coal mining industries.  Currently, the company is still locally owned and operated by the Smith family and has grown to service a multitude of customers in various industries. 

Built upon quality and service, Midwest has a large customer base that can attest to our integrity and commitment.  Our sales staff is highly experienced and respected within our service area.  We currently have long-standing relationships with many agricultural, industrial, commercial, and residential customers.  Midwest Terminal is fully equipped to provide direct-to-locomotive (DTL) fueling for the railroad industry, as well as shore-to-vessel fueling for the marine industry. 

Many of our customers rely on us to proactively manage their inventories of fuel and lubricants. We offer electronic tank monitoring to ensure that our customers always have an adequate supply.  We also hand-gauge tanks where electronic monitoring is not suitable. We offer fuel testing, maintenance, and treatment programs.  Through our relationship with Phillips 66 and Citgo, we are able to provide lubricant training for your maintenance staff.  Our customers’ needs are our priority, and we are available day or night to quickly respond to any situation that arises.

Each year, our facility undergoes a quality control audit by Phillips 66 to ensure that all lubricants maintain the highest product integrity from the source point through bulk storage, repackaging, and delivery to our customers.  Midwest Terminal has earned Top Tier recognition from Phillips 66 for our operational standard of excellence and was recently named by Phillips 66 as Marketer of the Month.  Our customers are always welcome to drop by for a tour and inspection of our facility.
