ThompsonGas acquires Florida company

January 26, 2023 By    

ThompsonGas, headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, acquired Gilbert Propane, based in Deland, Florida. ThompsonGas’ first acquisition of 2023 expands its presence in Florida.

Gilbert Propane was founded by Drewy and Francis Gilbert nearly four decades ago.

“We are very happy to welcome Gilbert Propane Inc. to our family of companies and look forward to continuing their tradition of exemplary customer service,” says Todd Tanis, area director for ThompsonGas.

Founded in 1946, ThompsonGas provides propane services to more than 240,000 residential and commercial customers across 26 states in the East, Southeast, West and Midwest.

Last year, the company added 10 new 2022 Ford F-750 trucks equipped with Roush CleanTech propane systems. The company’s fleet includes nearly 130 propane vehicles. The company ranks No. 7 among U.S. propane marketers for sales of retail propane gallons, according to LP Gas’ 2022 Top Propane Retailers ranking.
