NEW BRITAIN – Winter months can be challenging with the needs for home heating services, but that’s the perfect time for home owners to let Spring Brook Ice & Fuel Service step in and solve their home comfort needs.

Spring Brook’s services can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure customers are receiving the best possible home comfort assistance.

System repair, maintenance and installation are some of the services offered by Spring Brook. The company also provides an oil tank warranty program, emergency service and special offerings that include automatic fuel oil delivery, automatic personal care and real estate and community assistance programs.

Spring Brook is located at 19 Woodland St. and it has been providing services since 1918.

“We celebrated our 100th anniversary in 2018 so we are actually 101 this year,” Greg Stafstrom, owner and president of the company, said.

Based on the longevity of the business, Stafstrom said he prides the personnel on the reliable service.

The company’s mission is to serve customers as they would want to be served on their own home or place of business.

Lorraine Adamson, 83, of Farmington, said her parents used Spring Brook’s services since before she was born. When she moved on her own she kept on using the services of the same company and to this date she still does. Adamson was elected to speak at the company’s 100th anniversary and give a testimonial.

“If we ever had a problem I would pick up the phone, just call the office and it was always taken care of,” Adamson said. “I’ve had no problem whatsoever with them. They have prompt, courteous and fast service. I will not change from a company that has given me nothing but great service all this years.”

In addition, Spring Brook is committed to being involved and giving back to the community it serves.

Stafstrom is the board chair of the nonprofit organization CCARC.

“I’m also very involved in the New Britain-Berlin Rotary Club, but other staff members are involved in the YWCA, other community nonprofits and organizations,” Stafstrom said.

The company also makes donations and provides sponsorships to different events and charities.

Spring Brook originally started as a natural based business where they used to cut ice off the ponds and then it evolved into a delivery company for ice. With the invention of the oil burner around World War II, the company became involved in the home heating oil business and distribution.
