Count on W.H. Riley & Son for your fuel needs

W.H. Riley

How many businesses have you dealt with that have been around since Ulysses S. Grant was in the White House?

Think about all the things that have changed since then. We’ve gone from the Pony Express to WhatsApp, from horse-drawn wagons to SUVs. And think about all the changes in fuels and how we use them.

Through those years, W.H. Riley & Son has been a constant, delivering fuels to southeastern Massachusetts since its beginnings in 1873 in North Attleboro by William H. Riley and his son Elmer.

The transition to heating oil, propane and diesel

Things have changed a good bit since those days of coal, wood, hay, straw and building supplies, as well as moving furniture and teaming. Our service area has expanded from North Attleboro to Taunton and now encompasses much of southeastern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island. And today, we have built a strong reputation for being a reliable supplier of heating oil, propane and diesel.

But one thing has remained constant: Our commitment to providing the best fuels at fair prices—always backed by responsive, caring service.

By getting your home heating oil, propane and diesel from W.H. Riley & Son, you are supporting a local business that’s owned and operated by William H. Riley’s great-great-great-grandchildren. That keeps your fuel dollars in our communities, supporting local workers like our drivers and service technicians.

From Cumberland to West Bridgewater, Somerset to Walpole, W.H. Riley & Son is your go-to company for dependable, courteous fuel delivery, equipment and services.
