Keeping your family warm, safe, and comfortable all year

Our History

Joseph MagnoneFor more than 50 years, Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel have maintained a tradition of family values both at home and in the community. Founded by Joseph V. Magnone as a small coal and oil delivery company, Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel have grown to become the New York metropolitan area's finest independent fuel oil distributors.

Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel’s success stories began in 1952, when Peter Magnone formed Belnord Coal, Ice & Oil. Soon after Joseph & Thomas Magnone purchased the company and changed the name to Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel. This newly founded company delivered coal & oil to small, multi-dwelling buildings, and private homes. The conversion from coal to oil had begun when customers realized oil was a cleaner and more efficient source of heat. Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel made the necessary changes to better serve their customers and acquired additional trucks to deliver heating oil.

Times have changed dramatically since Joe first founded the company. Today, a third generation of the Magnone family continues to honor his commitment to providing top-flight customer service and high-quality products and service. This rich tradition is strengthened by its reputation for integrity and a philosophy of treating the customer first. Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel provide fuel for the enterprises that are the heart of the community: apartment and office buildings, manufacturing plants, private homes, schools, hospitals, and places of worship.

Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel have highly trained in-house service personnel and Customer Care Centers dedicated to handling customer needs. These outstanding team members actively volunteer in their communities and contribute to many charitable causes. In fact, Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel have received community service awards in appreciation for making heating oil more accessible and affordable to the elderly and lower income households.

As family owned and operated companies, Hunts Point Fuel and Brite Fuel aim to treat each and every customer like a member of the family
