M. W. Sewall is a 4th generation family business serving Maine’s Midcoast communities since 1887.
Throughout the 1800s the Sewall Family operated one of five major ship building yards along the Kennebec River. Noteworthy amongst its’ production, the square masted schooner, the Edward Sewall, delivered kerosene throughout the Caribbean for Texaco, eventually leading the family into the heating business.
Throughout the years three generations of Edward Sewalls have led the growth of M. W. Sewall. In early 1900 Mark W. Sewall moved the Company headquarters from upper Front Street to their present location to make room for the construction of City Hall. Building on their maritime history and the relationship with Texaco, M. W. Sewall operated a coal wharf on the Kennebec River, receiving product by ship and then delivering to local residents under the guidance of Ed Sewall.
In the mid 1900s, Edward Jr. joined his father at the company and M. W. Sewall became a consignee agent for Texaco. Texaco dismantled a fuel storage facility in the greater Boston area, shipped it to Bath, Maine and leased it to the Sewalls for one cent per gallon. In 1992, Ned (Edward III) Sewall became President and led the Company through an accelerated growth period that included the rebuilding of the current office at 259 Front Street, keeping with the historical design of downtown Bath, and construction of an environmentally safe, state of the art, fuel and propane bulk storage facility in West Bath, Maine.
