New Propane Business
Donny Galt of Ace Hardware and Jimmie Lawson of Jim’s Heating have partnered together to create a new business offering propane to the islands. Inter Island Propane and Mechanical will be the only locally owned propane business on the island.
“With the recent buyout of VanderYacht Propane by AmeriGas (DBA San Juan Propane) we both realized the importance of a new option for the residents of San Juan County” says Donny. “As we both came to the partnership table we realized how valuable we will be as partners. Jimmie’s 30+ years in the heating and cooling business and my 30+ years in a variety of entrepreneur ventures has created, in my opinion, a perfect match for a new propane sales and HVAC business.”
2 new propane trucks and a large assortment of propane tanks have arrived. The storage facility is nearing completion and the large storage tank should arrive within the next couple of weeks. They hope to begin delivering propane at the end of October or early November.
This is a new venture for Donny – he’s no longer managing Ace Hardware. Jimmie will still be doing the heating business, but it will be rolled in with the new business under the name of Inter-Island Propane and Mechanical.
Helping out with the deliveries will be Molly Finch and Ronnie Thurman.
