ExxonMobil Torrance Refinery
Very few companies still existing today can tie their own history to elements of the city's own growth and uniqueness. ExxonMobil's start in Torrance was a response to a mariner's vision of fueling ships in the Los Angeles Harbor, and through the years, ExxonMobil has continually been responding to the vision of the Torrance community. This attitude of responsiveness, of adapting to the times, and embracing its role as a vital member of the community, has made ExxonMobil one of the pillars, not only in the Torrance business community but also in the community at large. As ExxonMobil continued to grow, it took the Torrance community with it. Besides its contribution to the City's revenue stream it has exhibited generosity in sharing its success to shore up others in the community.
