DeKalb TX Chamber of Commerce Business of the Month - February 2024
Cooper Propane, 521 E Front St., DeKalb, TX 75559
Cooper Propane Company was formed in 1947, driven by a mission to supply the rural residents of Delta County, Texas, with “city gas” beyond the main lines. Electricity had reached the majority of rural areas by the late 1940’s but it did not supply heat to Delta County homes. Seizing the opportunity to provide family, friends and neighbors with access to gas-powered heating, Cooper Propane began a mission we continue more than 70 years later—providing exemplary service to bring comfort into homes and businesses throughout northeast Texas.
A ‘green’ company since its inception, Cooper Propane was instrumental in the development and use of propane as an alternative energy in farm power implements in Northeast Texas. As the company matured, operations expanded into irrigation, stand by fuel supplies, standby/off grid generators, central and zone heating systems, instantaneous water heaters, hot tubs/pool heating, decorative gas lighting, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, gas grills and fuel for motor vehicles.
Cooper Propane began to expand to bring its services to customers beyond Delta County in 1955 by opening up shop in Lamar County, TX. Today, known as The Propane Companies, the organization serves the energy needs of more than 10,000 customers in thirteen counties, including: Red River, Bowie, Fannin, Hopkins, Rains, Hunt, Franklin, Morris, Titus, Wood, Cass, Camp and Upshur. The Propane Companies meet the needs of residential, agricultural and commercial customers through service centers operating in Cooper, Paris, DeKalb, Sulphur Springs, Winnsboro and Mt Vernon, Texas, ensuring a propane expert is always nearby.
Our greatest assets are our people and our ultimate mission is to better serve our customers. When you call us, you will speak with a live associate eager to solve whatever propane-related need you might have—you will not hear a machine or confusing automated phone system.
