The year is 1872. President Ulysses S. Grant wins re-election. Massachusetts native Susan B. Anthony gets arrested for trying to vote. A fire destroys nearly 1,000 buildings in Boston.
That same year, the seeds for Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling were planted when a small wood and coal company called Willett & Chadwick was founded. That company would be purchased in 1941 by my grandfather, Ralph Woodcock, who renamed the business Needham Oil Company. The rest is history.
You won’t be surprised when I tell you that very few companies have been around for 150 years. Our ability to take care of our customers through all these years has only been possible because of the efforts of our amazing employees. Besides having a wealth of experience, they are nice people you can trust, whether they are making a repair, installing new equipment, talking with you on the phone or filling up your heating oil tank.
Of course, we couldn’t have made it this far without another fantastic group of people: our family of customers.
To mark our 150th year in business, we’re holding a special promotion to thank our customers for their unwavering loyalty.
We thank you for your support and confidence in us, whether you have been with us for decades or just recently joined us. We look forward to taking care of you for years to come.
