How does a propane company continue to grow in strength and reliability? By sourcing supplies of fuel, and understanding the importance of consistent propane supply.
That’s what we do every day at Franger Gas Company. We saw a potential propane supply problem following the winter of 2013-2014. As a result, we partnered with a supplier to build the Mentone Propane Rail Terminal.
Today, the Mentone terminal gives us access to a reliable propane supply. Customers in northern Indiana, southern Michigan, western Ohio and neighboring regions receive propane through the Mentone terminal. Additionally, the terminal helps stabilize propane prices by reducing transportation costs to service agricultural and other rural customers.
We continue to invest in the future, and focus on propane supply with our storage tank farm under construction in northern Indiana. The first phase of the site will expand storage capacity by 700,000 gallons. That security of extra propane supply simply means plenty of fuel to heat homes and businesses, even when demand increases in cold weather.
At Franger Gas, we live by our company motto – large enough to serve, small enough to care. It reminds us that your community is OUR community too. That’s why we continue to look for better ways to source, supply and service your energy needs, whether it’s in your home, on a work site or at a wholesale storage facility.
We are honored by the trust you place in us. We look forward to the delivering excellent service you have come to expect from us for another 75 years.
One of our best pieces of advice for our wholesale customers is this – there is no such thing as too much bulk tank propane storage.
“Storage and storage upgrading are the most important investments a propane company can make in its business,” explained Jeff Franger, owner of Franger Gas.
More capacity gives you more buying power, and the ability to save money during times when propane is priced lower. Additional storage can also allow you to ride out times of high demand and high gas prices – saving even more money and eliminating the stress of locating hard to acquire peak-demand propane.
Having more supply security of your product is crucial, especially with the potential of supply issues. Supply is predicted to be very tight this coming season, noted Franger. Already, Franger Gas is seeing major suppliers limiting the number of gallons available for purchase.
“We have had supply issues of some kind in this region in three of the last 5 years,” said Franger. “One of the surest ways to get ahead of that is with bulk tank storage.”
Propane companies who have bulk tank storage – and an onsite propane supply – can offer better customer service options including auto delivery, budget plans and timely refills.
“For our wholesale customers, the benefits of increasing their storage speak for themselves. And we are able to help, whether it’s an upgrade or completely new bulk plant construction,” said Franger.
