Company History

In the United States, a company more than a century old is rare. Founded in 1893 by Charles K. Smith as a coal, hay, and grain business, ckSmith has a long and proud history serving the homes and businesses of central Massachusetts. Originally a coal, hay, and grain business.

When fuel oil began replacing coal as the primary home heating source in the Worcester area in the 1930s, ckSmith changed with the times, adding fuel oil delivery to our customer services. Services for converting from coal heat furnaces to oil, installation of Oilheat systems in new homes and buildings, and the services to support oil-heating systems were added to meet customer needs.

In the 1960s, diesel fuel was added to our offering. ckSmith now provides wholesale fueling services to organizations with fleets of buses, trucks, and construction equipment.

Charles K. Smith was succeeded by his son Charles H. Smith, the Smith carried on the company for many, many years. In January, 2010, the Santoro Family purchased ckSmith from the Smith Family. Our evolution continues as we're helping customers diversify their energy sources, save money and reduce emissions by integrating our Propane energy and other environmentally friendly alternatives.
