Acme provides a variety of services throughout Thurston and Mason Counties, delivering propane and heating oil to homes and businesses for their energy needs.
Acme Fuel Co was founded in 1925 by the Springer Mill Company as a way to sell off their waste wood products to homes for heating needs. They soon began selling coal and heating oil as those energy sources became more common. Tom Allen Sr. worked for Springer Mill, then for Acme Fuel Co., and in the early 1940’s he purchased Acme from the Mill establishing the first generation of the Allen Family ownership. As time passed, Tom Allen Jr. joined the business and became a co-owner before his retirement, transferring ownership to his son, Christophe Allen, establishing the third generation of the Allen Family Ownership.
In 2021, ACME Fuel was acquired by Blue Star Gas, another third-generation family owned propane company that has been serving the Puget Sound area for 10 years out of its location in Tukwila.
