The Propane Partner of Choice

Liberty Propane was founded in July 2003 and remains steadfast in acquiring and operating quality retail propane marketers in attractive geographic regions of the country. Led by an experienced management team and driven by quality top-notch employees, Liberty has established an approach to acquisitions, operations and marketing in which superior value and satisfaction is delivered to customers, employees and business partners on a consistent and timely basis.

In five years, Liberty Propane has grown to become the ninth-largest retail propane marketer in the United States through a concentrated focus on acquisitions in the Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Rocky Mountain regions. Today, Liberty possesses 41 locations in 11 states with more than 300 employees.

Company Vision

“To provide service excellence that exceeds customer expectations and delivers results that investors value and others aspire to emulate.”

Liberty’s vision incorporates five core values:

  • Accountability – Make and Deliver on Commitments
  • Growth – Development of People and Business
  • Integrity – Relationships Built on Trust
  • Professionalism – Excellence in Every Action
  • Safety – Never Compromise

Liberty’s employees are empowered to address problems and provide service that meet customers’ needs, enhance company performance and satisfy personal goals.

Operations – A Balanced Approach

Liberty is both an acquisitions and operations company. “It is critical we execute in both areas equally and successfully to set Liberty apart from our competitors,” declares Liberty COO Boyd McGathey.

The company’s business philosophy stipulates that acquisition and operation activities be equally weighted. This focus has leveraged Liberty in a positive position among LP marketers and has strengthened an already excellent reputation by delivering superior value to customers and business partners while maintaining the highest standards of safety and customer service.
