L.E. Belcher is an independent multi-branded marketer of petroleum products based in Springfield, Massachusetts. It began operations in the late 1920s in Springfield. Charles Hough purchased the business from Leonard Belcher in the early 1950s. The company was sold to Hough’s son, Edward Hough, president, in the 1990s. Under his leadership and direction, and assisted by VP David Ryan, the company expanded its retail and wholesale footprint into a multi-state, multi-branded petroleum distribution enterprise with a reach that has stretched as far south as New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
