TLM One Inc. was founded in 1998 by brothers Trinidad and Eduardo Martinez, in Los Angeles, California as TLM Petro Labor Force. The pair began working in the Petroleum Retail Construction Industry in 1986 for separate firms learning all aspects of the trade; including UST removal/installation, fuel piping, dispenser installation, monitoring, electrical and project management. In 1998 the two began their own company and successfully grew their business into a multi-million-dollar construction firm building retail stations and convenience stores for Circle K, BP, Jacksons Food Stores, and many independent ARCO, Chevron, Mobil and 76 dealers.

TLM One is proud to be considered experts in our industry with our deep knowledge in petroleum retail construction. Through Trinidad and Eduardo’s leadership they have cultivated a culture emphasizing experience, safety, and skill. TLM One’s five core Supervisors have 150 years of collective experience. Its five Project Managers have 100 years of collective experience. Together TLM One Supervisors and Project Managers lead our work force which consists of experienced electricians, pipefitters, ICC technicians, mechanical technicians, designated operators, and general labor. They are all key to the company’s past and ongoing success in completing each project to our highest standards. As a contractor, TLM has consistently delivered with our experience earning the trust of our clients. Through this trust the company has continually grown through word of mouth.

Alternative Fueling


TLM One is always looking towards the future of fueling. In 2008, TLM built its first Hydrogen Refueling Station. The pilot project was a joint venture between the DOE and BP for the City of Burbank. This project would kick TLM on a path in which we would invest many years and resources to develop a Hydrogen Fueling division. TLM would build its second Hydrogen Refueling Station in 2015 for Linde in San Juan Capistrano. In 2018 TLM built its first station for Plug Power that would begin a successful relationship with the hydrogen powerhouse. Since that initial build, TLM has built a total of (6) Hydrogen Refueling Stations for Plug Power from 2018 to 2022.

TLM has also taken the time to develop and train its electricians so they can install rapid EV Charging. TLM One is a Preferred Vendor for EnergIIZE, which allows us to install, commission, and/or aid in the completion of a ZEV infrastructure site with two of our Electrical Supervisors holding certification. TLM is currently installing many rapid charging stations. As a Preferred Vendor for EnergIIZE, TLM One can also install eligible Hydrogen Fueling Equipment
