History of Proulx Oil & Propane, Inc.

Proulx Oil & Propane was originally established in 1944 by Joseph A. Proulx in Epping, New Hampshire. The original office was located where the current Epping Burger King has been built.

Maurice J. Proulx, Joseph's son, worked in the family business for his father and continued the family heritage in the heating business. He ultimately carried on the Proulx name in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire.

In 1985, Maurice established a foothold in Newmarket, New Hampshire. In 1987, he was joined by four of his six sons and one daughter in the same location, still in operation today. In 1996, due to increased customer demand, Proulx added propane gas and related products to the mix.

Proulx Oil & Propane is in Newmarket, NH with delivery and distribution located in Epping, NH. With over forty-five full and part-time employees and the most modern fleet of any company in the area, the Proulx name continues to be synonymous with the heating industry as it has for the past 77 years. Through acquisitions and growth our mission has remained clear and the same: Proulx Oil & Propane is committed to growing our business through an expanding base of satisfied customers.

We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you.
