Haly Oil, now Haly Home Comfort, started in 1985 with one truck and one customer. Delivering home heating oil was the initial focus, but it wasn’t long before a service department was added.
The company continued to grow, gradually expanding its offerings to include a full-service heating/cooling (HV/AC) department. In 2006, Great Valley Propane (GVP), a full-service propane company, was added. Currently, the company is expanding its products to include HomeWise, a comprehensive offering to residential customers that includes home security equipment, installation and automation.
Today, as the 35th anniversary approaches, the mission-driven Haly Companies strive to provide home comfort and energy services around the clock in the most customer-friendly way possible. And, Walter “Bud” Haly, owner and co-founder, continues to put customers and the community first, just as he did when he began delivering oil in 1985.
“We’re a family-owned business,” Bud says. “We live where you live, we raise our kids here, and we strive to have a positive impact on the environment. Our community is your community, and your friends are our friends.”
Some Key Players
Walter ‘Bud’ Haly has continued to stay very involved in the company since he started it. He is often running in and out of the office, multi-tasking with all of his companies. His love for antiques keeps our office’s look always-changing and fun.
Ryan has worked for Haly Oil as the General Manager since 2004 and started Great Valley Propane with Bud in 2006. He keeps the office laughing and manages to prank both employees and visitors whenever he can.
Matt started as a driver back when Haly was just delivering heating oil and worked his way up to oversee the entire operations side of the business. He goes a mile a minute and takes over a few hundred phone calls every day.
The Growing Business
When Haly Oil first started, heating oil deliveries was the sole focus. Bud’s personal style and service-oriented approach quickly set Haly Oil apart from competition. In an effort to help customers with their heating and cooling needs all around, a Service Department was added. Haly became known for more than just heating oil.
Great Valley Propane (GVP), Haly’s sister company was also a huge advancement for the Haly Companies. Being a Haly Company, GVP upholds the same standards and beliefs as Haly and also continues to grow.
Location, Location, Location
Haly Home Comfort first started in Downingtown, PA. The business quickly outgrew the start-up office, so operations moved to Malvern, PA after the first year. One move and one office later (still in Malvern, PA) Haly Home Comfort settled its home base at 57 Lancaster Avenue.
As the company expanded its services, its delivery territory grew as well. Haly Home Comfort first delivered to only Chester County and parts of Delaware and Montgomery Counties. Today, Haly delivers to Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Bucks County. A second office in Quakertown opened in 2015.
