Sunoco has an 81-percent ownership interest in SunCoke Energy, Inc., a publicly traded company which makes high-quality metallurgical-grade coke for major steel manufacturers.
Sunoco intends to complete its fundamental shift away from manufacturing through the sale or idling of its two remaining refineries and the spin-off of its cokemaking business to Sunoco shareholders by no later than the end of July 2012.
The company reported revenues of $37.4 billion in 2010 and net income of $234 million.
Sunoco got its start on March 27, 1886, when Joseph Newton Pew and Edward O. Emerson, partners in The Peoples Natural Gas Company in Pittsburgh, Pa., made a bold move to diversify their business. Looking to the promising new oil discoveries in Ohio and Pennsylvania, the partners paid $4,500 for two oil leases near Lima, Ohio. Within a few years the company had acquired pipelines, leases, storage tanks -- and was emerging as one of Ohio's leading suppliers of crude oil. On March 17, 1890, it became The Sun Oil Company of Ohio and was producing, transporting and storing oil as well as refining, shipping and marketing petroleum products.
Sun went public on the NYSE in 1925.
