Davenport Energy does more than heat the homes of Virginians. In fact, for a wide swath of the state, Davenport is likely impacting your life even if they aren’t your propane company.
Founded and headquartered in Virginia, Davenport Energy touches families outside of the home. It helps farmers to put the produce on family and restaurant tables, may fuel their favorite restaurant and may even help fuel their cars.
“If you are a business — let’s say you’re a farmer and you need to have a dependable partner who can provide 24/7 local service — we always have someone on the other end of the phone when you need us,” said Tim Davis, Davenport Energy’s director of marketing and dealer service. “We give commercial partners dependable pricing and have a proven track record.”
If you own a business, Davenport Energy takes the time to understand your customers and their needs. Davenport works with numerous propane suppliers and storage facilities to ensure a dependable supply of product and steady pricing.
For industries such as agriculture and construction, propane is a reliable and cost-efficient energy source to run an operation. What does that efficiency look like in practice? Propane fuels irrigation engines and other equipment, as well as building construction and heating water.
The savings — a major reason why about 4 in 10 farms are run on propane energy — can be substantial. Propane-fueled irrigation engines can reduce fuel costs by up to 45% compared to similar equipment using diesel fuel, according to the Propane Education & Research Council.
“Your energy source is vital to a successful farming operation,” Davis said. “If you get an unusually cold winter, you’re going to need to know you can get your barns warm and not take a huge hit on your fuel costs. We give our clients a reliable supply in all circumstances.”
Davenport as a gasoline provider
Davenport partners with convenience stores throughout Virginia to offer the gasoline they sell. Davenport’s clients include some of the biggest brands in gas and small local retailers.
The reasons to go with Davenport for your gas needs are numerous. Among them: 24-hour fuel monitoring, easy ordering, dependable delivery and a roster of experienced certified technicians to maintain and repair equipment.
The company also will partner with dealers on equipment purchases, branding and image upgrades. Retailers can invest in their operation by financing equipment and wholesale supply agreements.
“On the gasoline side, we have been doing this for a long time,” Davis said. “We understand that it takes dedication and focus to run a successful convenience store and we can offer that. We go out and work face to face with retailers, understand their needs and know how to support them.”
