We achieve this mission by disseminating relevant and timely industry information to members of the oil heating industry, the consuming public, and to elected and public officials.  OHIRI members strive to achieve a high standard of excellence and provide their customers with the best possible service. It is our association’s aim to fully support our members to help ensure they can achieve these goals.
