Woolley Fuel in Maplewood has been around for more than 90 years, but there’s nothing rusty about this family-owned and operated company.

Norman E. Woolley, the 4th generation of Woolleys to run the business, has taken the company into the 21st century by expanding services and changing the name.

Woolley explains that “while fuel oil is still a core offering at Woolley, we are evolving to be your total home solutions provider—providing heating fuel, HVAC, and plumbing services. Woolley Fuel is now Woolley Home Solutions.”

The Woolley family has demonstrated its forward-thinking ways before; in 2008, Woolley Fuel made history by becoming the first outlet in New Jersey to sell Biodiesel fuel to the public. At the time, Woolley was lauded by Maplewood Mayor Vic DeLuca, and the town selected to make its purchases of biodiesel fuel for its jitneys from the hometown business.

As explained on the Woolley website, the change to Woolley Home Solutions has been coming for some time with several strategic moves over the years that have solidified Woolley’s reach in Maplewood and far beyond for fuel services and more:

In 2010 Woolley Home Solutions became an accredited company with the The Building Performance Institute, Inc. committing to quality assurance programs that ensure there work adheres to BPI’s nationwide technical standards. In 2011 Woolley Home Solutions acquired C.T. Williams and Son Plumbing to further expand it’s offerings to include top quality plumbing help which included servicing and installing natural gas. Originally specializing in coal and ice delivery, Woolley Home Solutions evolved  into a fuel oil and heating business before adding total home comfort to its service line.

As a result of these choices, Woolley can now offer customers one-stop-shop access to a “whole house approach” to improving energy efficiency and comfort.

Ultimately, it boils down to this: The oldest business in Maplewood is now the newest and is taking steps to stay around long into the future.
