Industrial Propane Service, Inc. was established in 1968 by Charles and Helen Vandemark. The company’s main focus in the beginning was propane and anhydrous ammonia service and construction.
As the propane industry grew, so did IPS, eventually expanding to focus on service work, building new bobtails, and installing all types of propane storage facilities. In 1980, IPS, already being a distributor for LC meters, Blackmer pumps and many other products, became a full line distributor for RegO products.
In 1996, under the ownership and direction of Robert Vandemark, IPS was divided into two separate companies, IPS Equipment, Inc. (IPSE), and Industrial Propane Service, Inc. (IPS). IPSE is responsible for all wholesale activity and is a full line distributor for propane equipment and heating and hearth products, while IPS performs plant construction, bobtail sales and service, transport service, and pumping stations.
Currently, the third generation of the Vandemark family manages the daily operations of Industrial Propane Service, Inc. Jeff Vandemark manages the construction side of the business, while Rob Vandemark coordinates bobtail sales and truck service. Together with their employees, they are dedicated to upholding the premise of service which the company was built on – to offer quality service and superior customer support. When you choose IPS, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that from bulk plants to bobtails, you’ve made the right choice. IPS strives to stay current using the latest equipment offered in today’s market, while following the many changes in codes that effect the propane industry.
At Industrial Propane Service, Inc., we are dedicated to providing the support and technical experience that you can depend on.
