L.G. Jordan Oil & Gas Co., a provider of gasoline and fuel oil delivery, propane delivery and natural gas services, is celebrating 100 years of business.

The company was founded in 1924 by L.G. Jordan as a service station offering gasoline, tires, batteries and oil. In the 1950s, under the leadership of L.G.’s son Guthrie Jordan, the business established its current location and expanded its services to include gasoline and fuel oil delivery to homes, businesses and farms. In 1970, the company began propane delivery for agriculture and home heating.

Current President Amy Jordan Dean joined the family business in 1993. Her son, Carl Dean, joined the company as a fifth-generation family employee in 2021.

In the past few years, L.G. Jordan has expanded its offerings into natural gas services, tankless water heater sales and installation, and outdoor living sales and installation. The company covers seven counties in central North Carolina and serves more than 4,000 customers.

“The Apex Chamber of Commerce celebrates L.G. Jordan Oil & Gas on their centennial anniversary,” says David Bohm, the executive director of the Apex Chamber of Commerce. “Our thanks to L.G. Jordan Oil & Gas for their countless volunteer hours, financial support and economic developments that have made them who they are over the past 100 years.”

In a news release, Jordan Dean says the company remains committed to sustainability, innovation and community engagement. She envisions L.G. Jordan continuing to evolve its product offerings, emphasizing environmental responsibility and prioritizing employee safety and development.

Jordan Dean holds leadership roles in the North Carolina Propane Gas Association, the National Propane Gas Association and the North Carolina Propane Education and Research Foundation. Carl Dean contributes to industry advocacy through the governmental affairs committee for the Southeast Propane Alliance.
