Since 1959 our customers have relied upon our experienced staff and reliable service to provide propane gas service. Our staff and drivers primary concern is the safety of our customers. To that end, each year the customers receive a propane safety packet to give them better knowledge of propane gas.

We are a locally owned 4th generation business. We offer automatic (keep full) delivery and price protection plans catered to fit your needs.

We currently serve 2,000 customers and operate within a 50 mile radius of Carlinville. Our business has four bulk plants that can hold a total of 79,000 gallons of propane.

Throughout the years, the office staff and drivers have developed strong relationships with our customers that allow us to meet their demands.
