Our trucks have changed. Our logo changed. Even our name changed. But one thing that has gone unchanged in our 50 years of existence is our dedication to service excellence. Since our very first oil delivery in 1964, Siggins Oil has been Berks County’s most dependable full service oil company.
In February 1964, George Siggins and Robert Homan established Homan and Siggins Fuel Oil Company which provided home heating oil delivery and heating services to the Berks County region. The business was established using a rear bedroom in the Siggins home as its office. One year later the business was relocated to 430 Beltline Avenue in Hyde Crest, Reading, PA in a small trailer office. This move was followed by construction of a new office building on the site of the former trailer site.
In the years that followed, George Siggins with his wife Patricia, formed a sole proprietorship (Siggins Oil Company), which transitioned to a Pennsylvania Corporation in July, 1975. During that time frame, daughter Julianne (Siggins) Hurst and son Steven Siggins joined the staff of Siggins Oil Company.
The business continued to grow and in 1981, Terry Hurst, (Julie’s husband) joined the Siggins team. As time progressed, George and Patricia decided the time had come to retire and the business was transitioned to the second generation in 1994.
Today, over 50 years later, we still offer home heating oil delivery and heating service but have transitioned to a full service HVAC contractor. Though we have witnessed many, many changes over the years, one thing remains constant: the desire to provide our customers with prompt, courteous service and year round comfort at affordable prices.
