This past November, The Heritage Group celebrated 90 years as a family-owned business.
From our humble beginnings — one man, one truck, and a dream — we are continually evolving to realize our founder John E. Fehsenfeld’s vision of a long-term family business, guided by his core family values.
Over the past 90 years, we’ve seen exponential growth, built on the shoulders of the Fehsenfeld family and our extended Heritage family of employees. Four generations of family leadership and our lasting relationships with employees, customers, and communities form a foundation that keeps us strong.
We started out delivering home heating oil during the Great Depression, and now operate more than 50 companies, and employ more than 7,000 hardworking people who want to make a difference. This is our story. This is our Heritage Family.
