EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – There are some changes on the way, involving one of Springfield’s oldest oil companies. Punderson Oil, which is owned by Suburban Propane, is closing, but that won’t mean much to customers.
Auth Fuels in East Longmeadow has acquired all Punderson Oil clients. Owner Ed Taft said they were contacted by Suburban Propane about a month ago. Auth will honor all contracts as they are, and offer their own programs, as well. That will all take effect October 16th.
Taft said they’re already starting to schedule tune ups and deliveries.
“Anything they have with Punderson now or Suburban now, any service contract, any budget, everything will stay in force, because really their programs mirrored ours, so this should be a pretty seamless transaction,” Taft said.
Suburban Propane’s corporate office in Syracuse, New York has not responded to a 22News inquiry about the change.
