In 1929 Nicholas “Nicola” Lamparelli had an ice and coal business. Nicola used a horse and wagon to deliver ice and coal to his customers in the Dorchester area until 1931, when he purchased a 1931 Ford truck to expand his service area. His son Joseph Lamparelli worked with his father Nicola until 1943 when he entered the Navy. In 1945 his son Joseph came back from the service and started his own oil, ice and coal business. Fast forward to today and Joseph Lamparelli’s three sons John, Joseph and James have grown the business into a one stop energy provider. Today, Supreme Energy provides oil, propane, natural gas and petroleum products.
