Palmer Gas & Oil confirmed its commitment to keeping New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts homes and businesses warm by breaking ground on a propane storage facility in Somersworth, New Hampshire. Family-owned Palmer Gas & Oil, along with its subdivision Lamprey Energy, is one of the largest providers of commercial and residential fuel, service, sales and installation in the area.
“The supply infrastructure in New England is dated and can be taxed during extreme weather conditions,” said Peter Iacobucci, general manager of Palmer Gas & Oil. “Weather can prevent ships from docking in ports and create unforeseen rail interruptions. Adequate storage is essential to ensure we have plenty of product on hand for our customers during challenging supply times.”
On hand for the groundbreaking were president and owner Bill Ermer, along with his son Charlie Ermer, vice president of business operations, and daughter Joanne Ermer, vice president of human resources and IT. The award-winning Palmer Gas & Oil has been in the Ermer family for four generations.
“I’m proud that we’ve been able to keep families warm for over 85 years,” said Bill Ermer. “And prouder still that we employ so many great residents of New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.”
In addition to facilities in Atkinson, North Hampton and this latest storage facility in Somersworth, Palmer Gas & Oil also has an additional storage facility in Raymond, New Hamshire.
