THE PROPANE SELLER EXITS THE INDUSTRY.
This is the most traditional situation. In this case, the propane seller is looking forward to retirement and is prepared to move onto to the next stage of their life.
THE PROPANE SELLER TRANSITIONS GRADUALLY FROM THE INDUSTRY.
There are certain instances in which the propane seller prefers to remain with the company for the predetermined period of time, usually taking on a smaller role in order to acclimate and intrduce employees and customers to ThompsonGas.
THE PROPANE SELLER REMAINS WITH THOMPSONGAS.
For some propane sellers, remaining active in the business is a priority. We have had great success in specific acquisitions in which propane sellers have selected to remain with ThompsonGas, continuing their career with a true industry leader.
The decision to sell your propane company must not be taken lightly. Here’s just a brief sample of what some of our propane business acquisition owners have to say regarding their experience joining the ThompsonGas family:
When researching a buyer for Cooperative Propane, I was determined to find an organization that would provide my employees the opportunity for growth. I carefully studied the path ThompsonGas was taking, confident with their future plans. It was obvious our team could contribute to this candidate’s vision. Since selling my propane business I’ve watched with great pride as our star employees have continued to evolve with ThompsonGas.
After working in the business for 60 years, I decided it was time for me to retire from my propane company. I started the process of finding a propane business buyer and had actually consulted with several propane companies. I decided to sell to ThompsonGas. They were the perfect fit, and understood the value of my propane business. I was confident they would continue the valued service my company had provided for my customers, some of whom had been with me since 1946. I also wanted to sell my propane company to a group who would value my current employees and offer them more benefits than I had been able to provide.
Negotiations with ThompsonGas began and were conducted with transparency in a professional, competent, and timely manner. I have been pleased with our business transaction and continue to receive positive reports from my previous employees and customers.
If you are looking to sell your propane business, I highly recommend speaking with ThompsonGas.
In 2012 after the death of my business partner and good friend Alton “Bear” Askew, it was decided that we would sell our four location propane distribution company. We had two main criteria as conditions for a sale. One, to sell to a larger company that could provide a fair price for what we had established and, secondly, to find a buyer that would also make a commitment to our employees to evaluate them fairly and provide benefits to them that we could not provide. Of the companies we interviewed only ThompsonGas met this criteria, to which we are continually grateful. If the time has come to sell your propane company, I certainly would recommend selling to ThompsonGas.
