Suburban Propane

Suburban is a nationwide marketer and distributor of a diverse array of products to meet the energy needs of our customers, specializing in propane, fuel oil and refined fuels, as well as the marketing of natural gas and electricity in deregulated markets. In the residential and commercial markets, propane is used primarily for space heating, water heating, clothes drying and cooking. Industrial customers use propane generally as a motor fuel to power over-the-road vehicles, forklifts and stationary engines, to fire furnaces, as a cutting gas and in other process applications. In the agricultural market, propane is primarily used for tobacco curing, crop drying, poultry brooding and weed control. Propane is clean burning and, when consumed, produces only negligible amounts of pollutants, that's why propane is the safe, “go anywhere, do anything” green energy source for all seasons. Suburban Propane Partners also sells, installs, and services various whole-house heating products, air cleaners, humidifiers, de-humidifiers, hearth products, and space heaters to the customers of its propane, fuel oil, natural gas, and electricity products, as well as offers services, such as duct cleaning, air balancing, and energy audits. The company was founded in 1945 and is based in Whippany, New Jersey.
