We employ a tenured and experienced shop fabrication team.

We train our employees in DOT testing and inspections, electrical wiring, piping, fabrication, and welding. Plus, some of our employees are certified welders to ASME Section IX and qualified in GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, and FCAW welding processes.

Superior Equipment and Facilities

We maintain 19,200 square feet of truck and trailer shop space, 15 shop bays for truck and trailer fabrication and repairs, and seven acres of outdoor storage space.

Why Deliver Propane?

As more people and businesses search for ways to power, heat, and cook using alternative fuels, propane stands out as a forerunner among the competition. So, switching to propane delivery or adding propane delivery to your service offerings is a wise choice for savvy business owners like you. Here are three reasons why you should consider our propane truck conversion services.

  1. The Rise of Vehicles that Operate on Propane Autogas or Bi-Fuel: Propane vehicles offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional gasoline vehicles. Propane has a lower carbon content and produces fewer emissions, helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner environment. This fact makes propane delivery an attractive option for businesses looking to align with sustainability goals and meet increasing environmental regulations.

  1. Propane Provides Cost-Savings to Consumers: Propane offers cost savings and increased efficiency. While propane may have slightly lower fuel economy compared to gasoline, the lower cost of propane can offset this difference. Additionally, propane engines optimized for propane's higher octane rating can improve performance and fuel economy, further enhancing cost savings. Propane's low maintenance requirements and longer engine life can also decrease maintenance costs, providing additional financial benefits. These reasons combined mean that the need for propane delivery trucks is only going to increase in the future.
  2. Propane Is a Reliable Fuel Source: Lastly, propane performs well in cold weather, making it a reliable choice for businesses operating in colder climates. Propane-powered vehicles avoid many cold-start issues associated with diesel, ensuring consistent performance even in low temperatures. This reliability can be crucial for businesses that rely on transportation and delivery, preventing delays and maintaining customer satisfaction.

Overall, switching to propane delivery or adding propane delivery to your service offerings can provide business owners with more opportunities and more customers. It is a smart choice for businesses looking to stay competitive, reduce their environmental impact, and optimize their operations for future growth.
