Greg Ouellette, CEO, of Liberty Oil Equipment Co., Inc. in East Hartford, Conn. has announced his firm’s establishment of Liberty Propane Equipment, LLC’s expansion into the marketing and servicing of propane delivery trucks, commonly known as bobtails. Ouellette is bullish on this new business venture because there is a market for this service in the central New England I-91 corridor and across southern and western New England.
Liberty Oil Equipment was established in 1963 by his father Walter Ouellette and employs 7 full time technicians who handle the changeovers of truck tanks and the repair, service and maintenance of class 7 and 8 fuel oil delivery trucks. Liberty Oil Equipment is also an authorized Trans-Tech distributor and is a distributor for most major brand oil equipment repair parts.
Liberty Propane Equipment will be located across the street from their present facility at 77 Cherry Street and will employ three full time technicians. The shop manager will be Jim Courvelle from Groton Connecticut who has 20 years of experience in the maintenance of Bobtail delivery trucks. Liberty Propane Equipment can be reached at 860-610-0666.
