Family-Owned and Operated Since 1959

We are in our third generation of providing the highest quality sales and service to our customers. For us, it’s not just a job – it’s a matter of family pride. We value our good reputation based on more than 50 years of experience.

Back before most of us were born, uncle Dave who worked for a propane company that was for sale, convinced his father, our grandfather, to buy the business. We started small, working out of a farm building with our grandmother answering the company phone.

But look where we are now! From humble beginnings in 1959 in the family homestead, with a husband providing the services and a wife answering the phones, we’ve grown into a major dealership for propane appliances, services, and propane delivery. How did we do it? We’ve built our reputation on honesty, integrity, low prices, and high quality. You don’t grow and prosper as we have unless you stand out from the competition and emphasize quality and service. We are licensed professionals in providing propane products and services, with RI Master Lic. #1466 & 7869
