Supplying the Midland and Gladwin Areas
Who We Are
Now in its third generation of management, Stanford LP Gas (Midland, Mich.) operates with the same ethical practices as co-founders Dale and Edna Stanford, who started the business in 1957. Jeremy Stanford, his three siblings, and his semi-retired father Duane are current co-owners of the business.
The company has had a sense of community since the early days, when Dale and his wife Edna started out with a small general store not far from the current Midland office. Over time, they added LP-gas appliances such as cook stoves and refrigerators, and then made what has become a fairly common decision: selling the propane for those appliances. The couple set up 100-lb cylinder accounts for friends and family in the area. As the business grew, people began buying propane furnaces to heat their homes and businesses, and that pushed the Stanfords to install larger tanks instead of smaller cylinders. Dale and Edna eventually installed their own 18,000-gal. propane bulk storage tank.
The company still follows somewhat of an old-school approach to provide strong customer service, but it has
also adapted well to the rapidly changing times. Duane Stanford, who is still active in the business in semi-
retirement, and his children operate the company with the same core values of customer service that their
grandparents advocated when they started the business. In addition to its main office in Midland, the company operates a second location in Gladwin, a third in Kawkawlin, and a satellite location with an additional 30,000 gallons of propane storage. Propane for residential heat is its core business, but it also provides propane for commercial, industrial, and agricultural uses, and Stanford LP Gas also services temporary heat, motor fuel, and forklift accounts. The business has offered propane motor fuel conversions for more than 20 years. Conversions from gasoline to bi-fuel propane are the most common, but the company performs dedicated propane conversions as well.
