Today, Revere serves more than 25,000 residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial and governmental customers, and has field offices in Burgess, Fredericksburg, Gloucester, Hartfield, Oilville/Richmond, Providence Forge, Warsaw and Williamsburg. It also has a rail terminal in West Point, Virginia.

“Our customers and team members will be in great hands,” says Carlton Revere, president and CEO of Revere Gas. “We have been blessed as our business has grown and thrived over three generations based on providing our customers great service at a competitive price. I am pleased that we are able to transition our customers to a company that shares our values and commitment.”

The Revere family will retain ownership of its Hartfield headquarters building to support its other family business ventures.
