My father started his career with Magnolia Oil, which became Mobil oil. He worked in the accounting department for 40 + years. He got to see a lot of changes. I remember some of the old "accountant tools" he used and I can remember well when Mobil sold branded tires and batteries. My dad had accounts for the number of "blemishes", and I was amazed at the numbers.
One interesting thing, Mobil Oil purchased Montgomery Wards. The employees of Mobil received very nice discounts at Montgomery Wards, so everything I had as a kid came from the Montgomery Wards catalog. I still have may Power Kraft hand tools that are guarantied for life, (I may have trouble taking a tool back). I also have my 22 rifle that came from the Montgomery Wards catalog. When I bought my first car, I bought an electric buffer that is still going strong.
So, it is just interesting to know what all these companies own.
