Written on: February 24, 2022 by ICM

F. F. Hitchcock Oil Co., LLC of Cheshire, CT, has acquired Roberts Energy, LLC’s residential heating oil delivery business, marketed under the trade name Superior Fuel (along with its companion brand Amodeo Fuel) based in Waterbury, CT. The transaction closed on Jan. 10. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Superior Fuel, founded in 1947 by Salvatore Lantieri, provides heating oil delivery and HVAC installation and maintenance services to its Connecticut customers. In 2018, its second-generation owners divested the fuels delivery division to Roberts Energy.

“Superior Fuel has a long history and earned trust in the community as a home comfort provider,” said Frank Roberts, President of Roberts Energy. “We are glad to have completed this successful transaction with F. F. Hitchcock Oil, who will offer Superior Fuel customers outstanding service.”

F.F. Hitchcock Oil is a family-owned and operated business serving residential, industrial, and commercial customers throughout the west-central Connecticut region. Their multi-division operation includes heating oil and propane delivery, as well as comprehensive HVAC services.

“We are pleased to bring Superior Oil into the F.F. Hitchcock Oil family business,” said F.F. Hitchcock Oil President George Bowman. “It is a welcome addition to our operation.”

Cetane Associates served as the sole arranger and financial advisor to Superior Fuel.
