ThompsonGas acquires northern Minnesota propane retailer

March 30, 2018 By    

ThompsonGas acquired North Shore Oil & Propane, a heating fuel provider in northern Minnesota.

ThompsonGas says it will serve North Shore Oil & Propane’s residential, commercial and industrial customers.

North Shore Oil & Propane has operated in the northern Minnesota region for over 50 years.

“This is a smart next step for the future of North Shore Oil & Propane,” says Derek Ashmore, regional vice president of ThompsonGas. “Our two companies will blend together smoothly with a renewed focus on our customers. This acquisition will allow us to strengthen our service offering to customers to include better efficiencies, enhanced fuel ordering technology and a better overall value.”

The deal represents the company’s second investment in the region. ThompsonGas purchased the assets of Como Oil & Propane in 2015. The company says this acquisition strengthens its national footprint by expanding its presence in northern Minnesota.

ThompsonGas now serves more than 87,000 customers in 14 states.

“The strong communities in northern Minnesota make it an excellent place to do business,” says George Koloroutis, CEO of ThompsonGas. “The entire team at ThompsonGas is looking forward to expanding our investment in the region and provide our customers with the best products and services available on the market.”
