That’s been our commitment ever since we began serving the Hudson Valley in 1993. Everything we do—from automated tank monitoring to installation and service calls—is driven by a commitment to keep our customers safely and efficiently supplied without interruption. Whether you need heating, cooling, cooking, or all of the above, we have the resources and expertise to make your family our first priority.

In 1993, Richard Coon envisioned building a business based on the needs of the community. That idea has developed and grown into a well-respected family business. Now, more than 20 years later, First Fuel & Propane supplies propane gas and fuel oil throughout Albany County, Rensselaer County, Dutchess County, Columbia County, Schenectady County, Washington County, Saratoga County, Warren County, and Greene County, NY.

About Founder Richard Coon

Owner and founder Richard CoonRichard Coon inherited the hard working ethics of his parents Marcia and Lawrence Coon. Growing up around the family business, Richard’s talents and knowledge of business began to develop. As a young man, he was recognized for his accomplishments as a member of Team Honda Racing.  Richard’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to found First Fuel in 1993. Within twelve months he had hired a service technician and grew the business to 400 customers. His new business was now supplying heating oil and kerosene to the community. In 1994, while the business continued to grow, Richard added two more service technicians. In addition, he added a second fuel truck to the fleet.  To secure the growth of the business in 1996, Richard moved the operation to a new location. It was there that First Fuel erected its company headquarters and first bulk tank storage facility. The bulk storage tanks changed the business operation. Now First Fuel was making daily trips to the Albany fuel ports, allowing more time to devote to customer growth and retention.  1996 welcomed a new era for First Fuel. The company ventured into the liquid propane market, supplying propane to customers in Columbia County, NY. As a result, this opened up his operations to new areas of fuel demands.

In the early 2000s, they expanded.

In the early 2000s, First Fuel purchased another fuel company in the region. This brought them new heating oil and propane customers in Columbia and Rensselaer County, NY.  In 2013 they expanded again, acquiring another company. This acquisition added even more new propane customers in Rensselaer County.  2013 posed the biggest challenge to the company, pushing the demands for Richard’s spirit and vision. First Fuel & Propane built a second liquid propane facility in Rensselaer County, NY, allowing the company to handle the growing demands for propane in the region.  First Fuel & Propane tank sales are recognized by contractors and builders in the area as the main source for 500 and 1000 gallon liquid propane tanks, with the largest in-stock inventory of propane tanks. Availability and rapid delivery of propane tanks often exceed the expectations for time-sensitive building projects.  First Fuel & Propane is still driven by the racing spirit of its owner and founder Richard Coon. Their fleet of trucks and crew of professionally trained drivers deliver fuel daily. This service helps to serve the needs of the community in ten counties. The office staff works closely with clients and new customers to build long term relationships. Finally, the entire team strives to find new ways to make everyone’s lives a little simpler and more comfortable.
