Company History

Family Owned Since the Beginning

How it all started.

We are proud to be a small business success story out of the archives of American tradition – locally owned and operated.

After 22 years of working for the Pennsylvania Railroad on steam generators that burned 25 gallons of oil per hour, Jim became interested in home heating.  He found most systems only burn approximately three quarts per hour.  Thus, an idea and a business entrepreneur were forged as part of the American dream.

In 1956, Jim opened his business on Quarry Road and after 2 years moved into a larger facility. In 1958, 10 Cameron Avenue became the home to Hummelstown Fuel Oil Service.

The legacy continues.

Jim's son, Earl, followed in his father's footsteps by joining the company in 1959, continuing the legacy of Hummelstown Feul into the 21st century.

We are now a full-service heating, air conditioning, natural gas, propane, and fuel supplier. We have our own duct shop providing round-the-clock emergency service.

As Hummelstown’s Oldest Continuing Business, Hummelstown Fuel Oil Service is the area’s trusted fuel oil provider.  Because of our personal service, concern for our customers, and quality products, we are your reliable choice for fuel services in the communities we serve.
