GREENFIELD — Local energy provider Sandri Energy has purchased Facey Plumbing and Heating Inc. from David and Lynn Facey.

The Faceys founded their business in 2000, and they have established themselves as a successful plumbing and heating contractor with a strong local customer base in Franklin and Hampshire counties.

The Faceys operated their business out of a facility on Wells Street. The couple cited a desire to move to a warmer climate as the motivation for selling their business. They employed one additional plumber who will now be joining Sandri’s expanding plumbing division full time.

Sandri, a full-service energy provider also headquartered in Greenfield, services customers throughout Franklin and Hampshire counties in Massachusetts, as well as southern Vermont and New Hampshire. Founded in 1931, the local family-owned business started as a petroleum distributor and retail gasoline station operator.

Over the past nine years, the family has been diversifying its product line beyond the company’s traditional fossil fuel roots.

Today, Sandri Energy provides a variety of home heating fuels, including: #2 fuel oil, kerosene, propane and wood pellets in bags as well as bulk delivery. The business has expanded its capabilities of equipment maintenance and installation. In addition to being experts at servicing oil-fired furnaces and boilers, the business offers professional maintenance, repair and installation of high-efficiency natural gas, propane and wood pellet fired furnaces, boilers and central AC systems. Sandri also specializes in the installation of Mitsubishi and Daikin Electric ductless heating and cooling units.

“We have a large residential and commercial customer base here in western Massachusetts,” said Sandri Companies President, Michael Behn. “Expanding our services to include plumbing is a logical progression that allows us to better service the needs of our customers.”

In January of this year, Sandri Energy also acquired Tognarelli Heating & Cooling from Joel and Kristi Tognarelli. All the employees of Tognarelli Heating & Cooling joined the Sandri team, including Mr. Tognarelli, who is a Master Plumber. Sandri has moved quickly to add residential and commercial plumbing services to its product line during 2018. The purchase of Facey Plumbing and Heating will enable them to further expand into the plumbing business.

The Sandri Companies are a third-generation family-owned group of businesses whose holdings include A.R. Sandri Inc., Sandri Energy LLC, Sandri Realty, Fox Hopyard Golf Club and Crumpin-Fox Club. The corporate office is in Greenfield with regional operations throughout New England and upstate New York. Sandri’s primary business operation is wholesale and retail motor fuels distribution, and it is the largest Sunoco branded fuel distributor in New England. It delivers to 110 retail outlets, including 16 of its own Sandri branded convenience stores.

Sandri provides a variety of home heating fuels, including: fuel oils, propane, and wood pellets to thousands of customers. It offers professional maintenance and installation of oil, natural gas and propane fired furnaces, boilers and central AC systems.
