Please join us in congratulating Eastern Propane and Oil as the Greater Ossipee area Chamber of Commerce business of the year for 2016.
Eastern has been owned and operated by the Clement family since 1932. The Clement Family owned a busy hardware store in the town of Danvers Mass, and decided to try their hand at selling bottled gas for use as an alternate power source for home and outdoor appliances. The demand for this niche side of the business continued to grow until 1959 when the Clements, then under the name of Country Gas Distributors, expanded to a four-state LP gas retailer and wholesaler. With the spirited involvement from subsequent family generations, the company continued to develop their products and services and was eventually renamed Eastern Propane.
Now being run by Chuck Clement third generation and his two children; Megan and Josh (fourth generation) are continuing the family business. Since its inception, the company has been in business of supplying propane related products and services. By combining more than 80 years of industry knowledge and expertise, Eastern has become a house hold name for quality service. The largest family owned energy provider in the northeast, with over 350 employees. Their largest turnover of employees comes from retirement. If you talk with one of these employees while out doing their job; you may notice, they seem very happy to be working with this family owned business.
Not only has Eastern grown over the last 80 years, so has there contribution to our community and beyond. In our community they have been a major sponsor to the GOACC annual scholarship golf tournament held every year in August. They were instrumental in getting it started many years ago. Also they are a major sponsor of the Lakes Region Humane Society, “the little shelter with a big heart”. Eastern Propane does a swing away golf tournament every year to raises funds to help support our veterans; they are also the major sponsor of the annual Spring Fling Fundraiser which supports a homeless center for women and children in need.
So whether it’s sponsoring a local Little League team, supporting critical programs or making the life of someone less fortunate a little easier, Eastern Propane and their employees are proud to support numerous non-profits through-out our area.
I want to thank the Clement Family of Eastern Propane and Oil for being a long standing member of the Greater Ossipee area Chamber of Commerce, but even more for being a great supporter of our local community and beyond!
