ThompsonGas has acquired the assets of Propane Northwest, based in Portland, Oregon. Owners, Paul Bansen and Don Hutt, founded Propane Northwest in 1999. Bansen and Hutt worked for a major marketer in the propane industry for 15 years prior to going out on their own. Each are considered recognized experts in this space.
This acquisition expands the ThompsonGas footprint into Oregon and Washington. ThompsonGas now serves more than 90,000 customers in 17 states (MD, VA, PA, WV, NC, SC, TN, KY, GA, AL, MS, FL, MN, WI, MO, WA, OR).
ThompsonGas COO, George Koloroutis: “This is our first acquisition in the western United States and we are encouraged by the quality of the business Paul and Don have built. The Propane Northwest transaction will provide an immediate contribution to our business and we are very proud to welcome their customers and employees to the ThompsonGas family.”
