Acme Fuel Co was founded in 1925 by the Springer Mill Company as a way to sell off their waste wood products to homes for heating needs. They soon began selling coal and heating oil as those energy sources became more common.
Tom Allen Sr. worked for Springer Mill, then for Acme Fuel Co., and in the early 1940’s he purchased Acme from the Mill. It has been in the Allen Family since then. Tom Allen Jr. a Co-Owner and currently enjoying retirement; his son, Christophe Allen, is the President/Co-Owner.
