ARRO Autogas, a subsidiary of Paso Robles-based Delta Liquid Energy, opened its 20th refueling station in California, providing propane fuel for fleet vehicles like school buses.
The new station is located in Exeter and was opened in partnership with the San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities Coalition.
“We provide propane for an awful lot of engines in the region, not just vehicles but also wind machines, water pumps and agricultural applications,” said Delta Liquid Energy President Bill Platz. “Propane is a low cost, low greenhouse gas emitting fuel.”
In addition to public partnerships like the one with the city of Exeter, the family owned and operated network supplies alternative fuels to companies throughout the Tri-Counties, Platz said, such as Roadrunner Shuttle, Schwan Foods and Mission Linen.
With revenues of $40 million per year, ARRO is constantly adding support staff to its current team of 120 employees, about half of whom work in the region.
“Certainly as we grow the network, it allows all of our fleet customers to access new locations and refill their fleet vehicles,” Platz said.
