Ferrellgas acquires Reliable Propane

March 4, 2019 By    

Ferrellgas Partners LP acquired Sikeston, Missouri-based Reliable Propane for undisclosed terms.

Ferrellgas says the acquisition of Reliable Propane, a third-party Blue Rhino distributor, is evidence of the company’s commitment to growing its core propane business and tank exchange segment. Additionally, the acquisition represents an avenue to improve operational efficiencies and lower production and delivery expenses.

Ferrellgas is ranked second on the 2019 LP Gas magazine Top Propane Retailer rankings.

Reliable Propane delivers propane cylinders to retail partners in the Midwest and the South from locations in Springfield, Missouri; Starkville, Mississippi; Olive Branch, Mississippi; and Benton, Arkansas.

“We’re pleased today to fold yet another longtime third-party Blue Rhino distributor into our operations,” says James E. Ferrell, interim CEO and president. “The efficiencies we are gaining as a result of these moves will continue to benefit our industry-leading tank exchange business.”
