Francis Fuels Family History

Francis Fuels LogoIn October 1933, Bill’s  parents,  H.G. Francis and his wife Vivian began a business of tinsmith and installing coal and wood burning furnaces in the Ottawa area. Throughout the depression of the 30's, “H.G.” as he was known, kept the business going by hard work, diversification and commitment to his customers. He added roofing services in the early years and in 1939 he began to offer plumbing services.

The distinctive emerald green trucks became a familiar sight as the fleet continued to expand to serve the Ottawa and National Capital Region.Francis Fuels PickUp Truck 1953
The business continued to thrive and in the late 1940's and early 1950's his three sons, Reg, Hugh and Bill joined the business which now included Ventilation and Air Conditioning services.

In the late 50’s Bill saw the opportunities of adding Fuel Oil Supply and Service.
