CIARDELLI FUEL COMPANY - COMPANY HISTORY
In 1957, Ernest “Babe” Ciardelli had finally had enough of working at the Abbott Machine Company. His nephew Albert Eugene “Chick” Ciardelli took advantage of the opportunity and managed to convince him that they should to go into business for themselves, and so the pair founded Ciardelli Fuel Company. Babe took out a loan on his parents Milford homestead to purchase two trucks and a customer list from a local vender who was retiring from the oil business. As their new company took off with the local Italian stone cutters, “Chick and Babe” soon became known as "The Birds to Call” in East Milford for your home heating oil needs. Hard work and long hours enabled the two to make a living for each of their families as well as 2 full time employees.
Chick and Babe were able to grow Ciardelli Fuel Company to around 2,000 customers by the time Chick passed in 1980, leaving Babe and his immediate family as the operators of Ciardelli Fuel. Oil and service became a tradition by the time Michael (Babe’s son) and his wife Heather Ciardelli took over the day to day operations in the mid 1990’s. At that time, the economy was booming and buildings were going up all around Hillsborough County that used propane as their main fuel source. Mike and Heather decided to add a propane division and build upon their great reputation for competitive pricing and outstanding service.
Today, Mike and Heather are still involved in the operation of Ciardelli Fuel Company, but the majority of the responsibility is in the hands of the 3rd generation of Ciardellis. Brothers Matthew and Andrew Ciardelli run the operations and service respectively and oversee 37 employees who service over 6000 customers across 30 towns. For over 57 years the Ciardelli family has been keeping families in our community warm - 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Best of all, our customers take comfort in knowing that they can get a Ciardelli family member on the phone whenever they call.
