ThompsonGas Acquires Propane Delivery Business of South Florida Gas Company

ThompsonGas LLC (ThompsonGas) has successfully acquired the tangible and intangible assets related to the propane delivery business of South Florida Gas Company Inc. (South Florida Gas). The acquisition was completed on June 21, 2023, positioning ThompsonGas as a prominent South West Florida propane market player.

For more than 27 years, South Florida Gas has been recognized as a leading propane provider serving the South West Florida region. With a highly experienced team boasting over 140 collective years of industry expertise, South Florida Gas has earned a stellar reputation for its exceptional service, resulting in solid customer referrals.

The journey of South Florida Gas began in 1995 when Charles (Chuck) Robb and Terry Fisher acquired Careful Gas Service. Chuck later purchased Terry’s interest in 2007, becoming the sole owner and renaming the company South Florida Gas. Focusing on a niche market serving RV parks, the business steadily expanded through strategic acquisitions, broadening its service territory in southwest Florida. In addition, a state-of-the-art facility with bulk storage was added to enhance operational capabilities. South Florida Gas serves a diverse customer base along the Gulf Coast, including multiple residential, metered propane systems.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the acquisition, Chuck Robb, President of South Florida Gas, stated, “This is a momentous day for our business, employees, and customers. The sale of our business was part of our long-term plan, and with ThompsonGas taking the reins, we are confident it will be taken to the next level, especially with the guidance of our management team.”

ThompsonGas, with a remarkable legacy spanning over 75 years, has established its presence in 23 states. The renowned brand originated in a storefront in Boonsboro, Maryland, in 1946, founded by Lloyd and Dorothy Thompson. Their commitment to delivering quality products and service has been the driving force behind ThompsonGas’s success.

Erik Peterson, CEO of ThompsonGas, expressed his excitement about the new addition to their portfolio, stating, “South Florida Gas Company’s integration into the ThompsonGas family represents a significant enhancement to our presence in the Florida market. We warmly welcome the South Florida Gas team and are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition as they become part of ThompsonGas. We are honored to carry forward the remarkable legacy built by South Florida Gas.”
