(Newport, NH) Eastern Propane & Oil, a family-owned business since 1932 proudly serving over 100,000 customers throughout New England, has added to the family with the recent acquisition of Goodrich Oil & Propane in Newport, NH.

“Since 1974, Chris Marcotte and his family have been serving the fuel needs of the greater Newport community. It is a true honor that Chris has entrusted Eastern to carry on their legacy of providing outstanding customer service to Goodrich Oil & Propane customers,” said Tom Manson, CEO of Eastern Propane & Oil. “The team at Goodrich has a customer-first mentality and it is a privilege to welcome them to our family.”

For 90 years, Eastern Propane & Oil has been serving customers with dependable 24/7 service and delivery. Goodrich Oil & Propane has always had deep roots within the Newport community. Their customers are accustomed to seeing the Goodrich team involved at all levels and Eastern is committed to providing that same level of involvement and personal service. The combined bulk fuel storage of Eastern and Goodrich in the area provides customers with additional supply security as we enter the winter months.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people that contributed to the success of Goodrich Oil Company,” said Chris Marcotte, Owner of Goodrich Oil & Propane. “First, and foremost, I am grateful for all my employees. Their hard work and dedication helped bring the company to where it is today. Next, I would like to thank all our loyal customers, who entrusted us to provide all our services at their homes and business as well as helping to keep them warm during our New England winters. Finally, I’d like to thank my parents for the opportunity, and believing in me, to run the company. This was not an easy decision, but it’s the right one for me at this time in my life. I have complete confidence that Eastern will continue supporting the people of Newport and surrounding towns with the same care and consideration that Goodrich Oil was founded upon.”
