Metro Energy M & T Oil Company Inc has been in business since 1929. Our expert, honest, courteous staff is dedicated to providing you with the best heating oil services.

Metro Energy M & T Oil Company Inc’s history in South Boston can be traced back to 85 years ago in 1929. Manoug Markarian, a man of Armenian descent, immigrated from the Anatolian section of Turkey. He eventually settled here and began delivering ice and coal to the people of South Boston from his truck.

Manoug’s two sons, Mike and Toros, when they were old enough, used to go out after school and help out their father. In 1944, before completing high school, Mike and Toros joined the Navy during WWII. When they got out of the Navy in 1946, they took the business and turned it into the full-service oil heat company. In 1959, it was incorporated as M & T Oil Company.

After the passing of Mike in 1982, Toros made several acquisitions, helping the business to grow over the years. In 1989, Toros changed the company name from M & T Oil Company to Metro Energy. The new name is a more accurate reflection of the area served by the operation which reaches into the greater Boston and suburban areas.

A sign sporting the former name of the company remains at a prominent corner of the building, and the folks in the neighborhood still refer to Metro Energy as M & T.

An important part of being involved in the community means helping out the people in it. The front window of the company’s office is full of trophies from the neighborhood teams. The company sponsors local basketball leagues, Boston Youth Soccer League, South Boston Little League, and supporter of the Boys and Girls Club.

Today, Toros’ daughter, Brenda and his two sons, Thomas and Edward, along with their staff celebrate 85 years of continued dedication. We have been serving the heating needs of the greater Boston and the surrounding metro area. As a full-service oil company, Metro Energy M & T Oil Company Inc provides automatic oil deliveries and installs heating boilers and furnaces. We offer maintenance contracts, budget payment plans, and Tank Guard® oil tank warranty plans.

In a competitive industry, it is very important to have excellent service with a staff standing by 24 hours and 365 days a year, including holidays. Call us at 617-268-4662 for a FREE estimate on our services!
