Locally Owned, Community Driven


It was over 100 years ago that Spring Brook Ice & Fuel first began chipping the tops of frozen ponds and delivering ice to the residents and businesses of New Britain. It was a time before refrigeration when people used ice boxes to keep food and perishables cold. We still deliver ice to our customers, but it doesn’t come from surrounding lakes anymore!

The customers of Spring Brook Ice & Fuel aren’t just “customers” to us. They are our friends, neighbors, and family members. Without their trust in us to provide dependable services, we would not have been able to grow into the full-service home comfort company that we are today.

We will always be indebted to our community and the hardworking people who make it such a special place to live.


The Ernest Groth Memorial Scholarship

Every year, Spring Brook Ice & Fuel provides four $1000 scholarships to four graduating seniors from New Britain, Newington, Plainville, and Berlin, Connecticut, through our Ernest Groth Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship program was established in memory of our former owner, Ernest Groth, and is awarded to graduating students pursuing a business degree.

We are so proud to help support our local youth as they continue to work toward achieving their dreams. You can learn more about the scholarship and read the thank-you notes sent to us by this year’s scholarship recipients below. Click the images below to view full size.
