HOPATCONG, NJ - Hopatcong Gas Services, a company that supplies propane to many areas of Roxbury, has merged with Combined Energy Services, a regional supplier of propane gas & fuel oil.
Established in 1994 by Bill Sutphen as part of a family hardware store in Lake Hopatcong, Hopatcong Gas grew to service parts of Sussex and Morris counties including Byram, Netcong, Roxbury, Stanhope, Jefferson and Mount Arlington.
When the time came to sell Hopatcong Gas, the Sutphens could have easily chosen one of the big stock market nationwide gas corporations. But they knew their customers would be unhappy in the long run.
“When you supply people for decades, they’re more than ‘just’ customers – they’re friends and family," said manager Sherri Sutphen Morlander. "We’ve known Combined Energy Services ...for a long time and knew they would take care of our customers properly instead of treating them like a number like corporations do.”
CES hopes to bring additional services to the customers of Hopatcong Gas including automatic bulk deliveries and cylinder deliveries, expanded service capabilities and installation of gas burning appliances, heating systems and fuel oil conversions.
CES Manager Mike Taylor said, “Hopatcong Gas is a perfect fit with CES as we’re gaining new customers all over Northern New Jersey every day. We’re on target to get our new office and showroom; along with full service distribution center open shortly to better service our growing customer base.”
Customers of Hopatcong Gas shouldn’t see much difference going forward, just great service from another family owned company that cares for their customers along with expanded capabilities.
