About Us

About Us
Burkardt’s LP Gas is honored and very proud to be your hometown propane provider. When we started Burkardt’s LP Gas over 30 years ago, we were a one-truck operation with just two employees. Today, Burkardt’s LP Gas has grown into a 21 employee, 12-bobtail operation delivering clean, efficient propane to more than 6,500 customers.

We could have never done this without your trust and loyalty. We’ve seen a lot change during the past 30 years, but one thing will always remain the same — our commitment to providing you the personal customer service you deserve.

If you are a Burkardt’s LP Gas customer, we genuinely thank each and every one of you for your loyalty and support. And, if you are not yet a Burkardt’s LP Gas customer, we invite you to join the thousands of satisfied customers who are already part of the Burkardt’s LP Gas family.

Our History

On March 16, 1982, Bill and Beverly Burkardt founded Burkardt’s LP Gas to serve the Ogle-county Polo area. As a local, family-owned business, our priority has always been to provide the kind of propane service we would want for our own family. Over three decades later, the Burkardt’s LP Gas family has grown to include more than 6,500 residential, agricultural and commercial customers in eight counties.

Our first year in business we delivered 750,000 gallons of propane. Last year, deliveries had grown to more than 8.7 million gallons. And, although we’ve grown, our focus hasn’t changed from providing friendly, reliable propane service.

To continue to improve our service over the years, Burkardt’s LP Gas has built additional storage facilities and can now store more than a quarter of a million gallons. This additional storage ensures you will always have a secure supply of propane. It helps keep propane prices stable by allowing us to purchase propane in large quantities and store it. Increased storage capacity also reduces transportation costs — all savings that we can pass along to you.000_0277

In addition to providing a secure supply of propane at a stable price, Burkardt’s LP Gas takes its commitment to safety and service very seriously. All of our service technicians participate in the Certified Employee Training Program sponsored by the National Propane Gas Association. This valuable safety training helps ensure your gas system is installed correctly for your safety, and that it operates as efficiently as possible. Our service technicians continually update their safety education and training.

Our friendly, well trained, and knowledgeable employees can handle all your propane-related needs. We love visiting with customers and providing you the same level of service we want for our own family. At Burkardt’s LP Gas, we feel it is important to give back to the community that has given us so much. Burkardt’s does this by supporting local churches, schools, fire departments, little leagues, nursing homes, and many other non-profit

And, in addition to great propane service, you’ll also be supporting local jobs and other important organizations in your community.
