He started the business with one delivery truck and one employee providing “butane” gas service to residents of the community.
As years have passed, the business has grown dramatically. O’Nealgas, Inc. now has a small fleet of delivery and service trucks and nearly 70 employees in 9 office locations, 27 parishes in Louisiana, and 8 counties in Arkansas.
For almost seventy years we have earned our success based on three principles, all of which are driven by the contribution of outstanding employees. First, we have always sold and delivered the highest quality products to our customers. Second, we have made a conscious effort to deliver the best gas service in the industry. Third, we believe being a family-owned company adds value to the customer and community.
As a full-service propane company, O’Nealgas is one of the few propane businesses that not only sells propane and natural gas products, we also install gas products and guarantee “service after sale,” which means that our in-house specialists will be available to assist with product repairs and maintenance of any product you purchase from us. Our team can assist with propane piping, retrofitting, propane openings, installations of new propane lines, and we repair damaged propane gas lines. For all of your gas needs, O’Nealgas has the experience, resources, products, and service specialists to get the job done.
