A Brief History Of Our Company

The year was 1982 when Wayne and Judy Nelson, Billy Nelson and Ralph Putman started Nelson-Putman Propane in a farm shop in Emhouse, TX. Back then, it was all hands on deck, as Ralph and Billy were the route salesmen and Judy was the one and only office personnel. Meanwhile, Wayne took on the task of serviceman, setting tanks and repairing leaks.

Shorty after, John Nelson, Wayne’s father, joined Nelson-Putman Propane who retired from Northern Propane Gas after 40 years as a manager. His work experience and reputation of always putting customers first, paid off. Pretty soon after, they were in need of more personnel, delivery trucks and servicemen due to customer growth.

Over the last 37 years, the company has not only remained multi-generational with the addition of Gary Nelson, Judy and Wayne’s oldest son, who is currently the manager of the Ennis location. And Jeff Nelson, their grandson, who became our CEO as of 2006, but it has also grown significantly due to the acquisitions of Suburban Propane Gas, Henry Oil and Gas, Mr. J’s Propane, Poole Gas, Casey Propane, Gregg LP Gas, Lyle Propane and Sandyland Propane.

In 2011 the company changed it's name to Nelson Propane Gas Inc. in order to establish the larger arena and potential growth, but, our core values have remained the same over the years.
