GROWMARK is ranked as the fourth largest propane retailer in the United States (fiscal year 2015) by LP Gas Magazine. Supplying companies throughout 16 states and operating around 300 company-owned transports, GROWMARK sold 298,691,088 retail gallons of propane during 2015.
Propane is used by millions of people in various applications – within the home, over the road, at work, and on the farm. Propane is a fuel source with over 90 percent produced and consumed domestically in the United States. The industry generated nearly $15 billion in direct domestic value in 2009 and supports local jobs. Over 50,000 workers in the U.S. are employed in propane production, transportation, and distribution.
"I am very proud of the GROWMARK and FS Systems," said Becky Hornblower, GROWMARK Propane Marketing and Technical Services Manager. "Our dedicated team works to take care of our strong customer base and works very hard identifying new applications to help grow the industry. From those operating bobtails to sell and deliver product, to those providing excellent customer service, we have many people in various roles taking part to ensure our customers are treated as well as they deserve. We even have teams that are seeking out accounts that may benefit from cost savings and environmental benefits by using propane as a motor fuel. It is very rewarding to work for such a dedicated group and within an industry that is focused on helping customers use a clean, American-made energy source," she added.
