Our History

W.C. Esp is one of four affiliated South Fork home comfort companies that work together and share a commitment to energy conservation and superior customer service. Our sister companies are Bradford Oil, Dippel Fuel and Island Oil. Together, we make a significant contribution to the South Fork economy by employing local people and supporting local organizations.

In spring 2013, we expanded our service offerings to include propane. In doing so, we became a one-stop shop for our customers by providing them with the ability to have the convenience and comfort of both heating oil and propane in their homes. We have proudly delivered propane and propane equipment services to homes and businesses on the East End ever since, enhancing our customers' indoor and outdoor comfort all year round.

William C. Esp founded W.C. Esp in 1937. The company is now owned and operated by the Volkmann family. W.C. Esp acquired Bradford Oil in June 1991; Island Oil in December 1996; and Dippel Fuel in October 1997.
