In March of 1952 in his small hometown of Choudrant, LA, John A. O'Neal founded O'Neal Butane.
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 60 employees in over 9 office locations, 20 parishes in Louisiana, and 5 counties in Arkansas.
For over sixty 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.
Tom O'Neal, John and MeJ's oldest son, came to work for the family in 1977 after finishing college. In June of 2001, Tom took the active seat as President of O'Nealgas, Inc. and is Owner and President of Hercules Transport, Inc., a bulk liquid carrier, also based out of Choudrant, LA.
