Dead River Co. acquires Breggy Oil Service Inc.

November 27, 2017 By    

Maine-based Dead River Co., northern New England’s largest home heating company, acquired 71-year-old, family-owned Breggy Oil Service.

“We are actively looking to expand our business through acquisitions in New England and the surrounding areas,” says Deanna Sherman, president and CEO of Dead River. “When acquiring other companies, however, it’s important that we find home heating businesses whose values and commitment to customer service match our own. Breggy Oil Service is just such a company: family owned with a tradition of meeting its customers’ needs and being part of the local community.”

The Breggia family, owners of Breggy Oil, will retire and hand their customers over to Dead River, according to the company. The acquisition will expand Dead River’s footprint in northern New England.

“I am pleased that Breggy Oil is merging with another family-owned business, Dead River Co.,” says John Breggia. “Dead River Co. has been in business for 108 years, and has earned the reputation of being responsive, caring and reliable. I firmly believe our customers, who we care for deeply, will be in very good hands.”
