ThompsonGas, LLC announces the acquisition of ER Energy, Inc., a leading propane provider in California, Nevada and Washington. ER Energy, Inc. was a family owned and operated company that proudly served Northern California for over 30 years. What started out as a small fuel delivery business evolved into a community based company.
ThompsonGas CEO Jeff Kerns stated, “We’ve known Ken Foster and ER Energy for several years, and have great respect for his team and their accomplishments. Ken’s family-oriented approach to his business is a perfect complement to the same principles that drive Thompson Gas’ daily business: trust and service. We intend to continue serving ER Energy’s customers in the same manner.”
ER Energy CEO Ken Foster commented that, “My company, ER Energy, is a propane distributor with multiple locations across the Pacific Northwest. It became apparent that the ThompsonGas model would be a good, long-term fit for my employees, customers and vendors. Under the calm and steady leadership of Jeff Kerns, ThompsonGas purchased my business on June 22, 2018. The transition was seamless and professional, and it is obvious that I had made the best decision for my entire team.”
“We are excited to welcome the ER Energy employees to the ThompsonGas family as we continue to expand our footprint in the Western US,” said ThompsonGas Regional Vice President Eddie Lamphear. “We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to continue providing superior service to ER Energy customers.”
Founded in 1946 and headquartered in Frederick, MD, ThompsonGas now serves customers in 20 states.
