John G. Techiera established Linwood Fuel, Inc.
in the 1930s, passing along the business to his son, John M. Techiera, in 1978. A little more than 20 years later, John's oldest son, Michael, began working full time after many years of learning the business as a young helper to his father.
Then, in 1996, John's youngest son, John Jr., joined his father and brother in the family business. The three have been going strong ever since. Though John Sr. retired in 2008, he's still actively involved in the business. He does enjoy his free time away from the everyday grind.
