Are you looking for a partner to acquire your propane business? At EDP, we’ll enable your exit strategy and preserve the legacy you have built.
Energy Distribution Partners is seeking quality propane operators who understand the propane business, have hired good people and know how to serve propane customers. Since our inception in 2012 we’ve acquired 30 operations serving customers across 15 states, in both rural America and major metropolitan areas.
Local branding strategy
Our strategy is to acquire successful operations, retain the brand name, preserve local management and delegate to those in the local community. In turn, we support the operation with national access to secure propane supply and streamlined systems. This local branding strategy creates an attractive situation for local owner-operators.
We’ll preserve your legacy
You’ve worked hard to develop a reputation as a trusted propane source for your customers. You care deeply because you’ve invested so much of yourself in building your company. We’ll preserve the legacy you’ve built by continuing to invest in the ongoing growth of the local business and remaining active in your local community.
We’ll take care of your people
At EDP, people are the key to our company’s success. That’s why we foster a culture that not only values people but also commits to maintaining an atmosphere of trust, goodwill and mutual respect. When we acquire your company, your employees will enjoy a workplace that embraces fairness and ensures growth opportunities. See what employees have to say about their experience joining EDP following a transaction.
We’ll provide a safe, positive customer experience
We’ll continue to provide your customers with an unwavering commitment to safety and quality of operations. You can’t put a price on safety, and we make safety our top priority. In fact, we put every single employee through the propane industry’s Certified Employee Training Program (CETP). As for customer service, we’re committed to providing an exceptional experience by customer service representatives who work in the local office, not a national call center. We won’t disappoint you!
