About Company

Hino Gas is a Propane Company, headquartered in Harlingen, Texas. We sell propane to residential, commercial and industrial end users in the Rio Grande Valley and surrounding counties as well as provided full-service propane piping system installation and service. We Sell and Lease tanks, of all sizes, hoses and fittings for almost any application, large or small. We also sell or lease forklift cylinders and cages for industrial forklift applications. Industrial and Commercial installation is our specialty. Hino Gas is the premier Propane dealer with the equipment and man-power to provide the best service and most competitive pricing in the Rio Grande Valley.

In 1963, Alejandro Hinojosa, Sr. saved enough money to purchase one propane bobtail truck and began to deliver propane to mostly rural domestic customers in Cameron and Willacy Counties. Mr. Hinojosa did everything himself in those days: he was the mechanic, the dispatcher, the accountant, the receptionist, the propane service technician and the driver to deliver the product to people’s homes.  In time, Alejandro Sr. began to receive a reputation from his customers as a “man of his word.” He also became known as a hard-working, reliable and honest person who would always be there no matter what weather conditions or otherwise to deliver propane or LP Gas. Later, he would pass this characteristic on to his future employees as a criteria of success.  In 1967, Alejandro hired his first employee. Hino Gas in Harlingen during the Oil Embargo of the 70′s grew quickly due to certain “allocations” of gas given to marketers by producers. Hino Gas was one of the fortunate companies to be given an allocation where many other marketers in South Texas and Northern Mexico were not able to purchase gas from any other company but Hino Gas. Soon, Hino Gas due to the embargo and some acquisitions of other propane companies including Big Valley Butane located in Port Harlingen and Rio Hondo LP Gas, became one the largest competitors in Cameron and Willacy Counties.  Growth at Hino Gas continued on in the late 70′s and on into the 80′s. In 1978, Alejandro Sr. bought Manske Propane in Brownsville at the corner of FM 802 and Hwy 281 and rebuilt an office and propane facilities there. In 1986, Hino purchased Valley Fisheries Propane Company in Port Isabel. In 1995, Alejandro Sr.’s son, Alejandro Jr. joined the team at Hino Gas. Today, Hino Gas has 26 employees in Harlingen, Brownsville and Port Isabel. The majority of these employees have worked with Hino for 10 and 15 years or more. Hino Gas now serves approximately 9,000 Residential, Commercial and Industrial customers in Cameron, Willacy and Hidalgo Counties in Deep South Texas.

Commercial and industrial service is our specialty. 

While Hino Gas continues to service residential and commercial customers in all aspects, including Tank and cylinder sales, rentals, and piping system installations just as Alejandro Sr. did in the early 60′s, Commercial and Industrial service is “Our Specialty.” The level of expertise is unmatched in South Texas in the field of Commercial Water Heating, Steam Generation, Gin Applications for Drying and Commercial Kitchens whether the application calls for LP Liquid or Vapor service and any other process using propane gas for heating of any kind of substance. Hino Gas has also “Perfected the Art” of RV Trailer park service. Hino Gas is the premiere specialist in serving these RV parks not only because of honest, reliable service, but because Hino Gas has also perfected a scheduling system to ensure that no matter how much demand on even the coldest day, all of the people served in the number of parks served by Hino never go without propane. Hino Gas is the only L.P. Dealer in South Texas which has the man power and equipment to service the largest R.V. Parks in Cameron County.  Additionally, Alejandro Sr. was the first in the Valley and even in the State of Texas to use small one-ton bobtails for propane delivery in RV Parks instead of the traditional large and heavy two-ton trucks which can potentially cause damage to the parks’ streets.  At Hino Gas, the customer is always first. Alejandro’s Sr.’s philosophy has always been, “no customer, no job; no job, no living.” Hino Gas has always striven to have a “working-team elationship with the customer” where the satisfaction in price, service, and reliability are primary to the satisfaction of the customer and hence the livelihood of the Hino Gas Team and their families. Hino Gas has always believed in and advocated “repeat business” and the only way to achieve this is to practice the philosophy of Mr. Hinojosa. Alejandro Sr.’s philosophy of Hard Work, Honesty, Service, Safety, Competitive Price and Courteous service has been the main reasons for the company’s success over the last 36 years. With this creed and the new directions being pursued by the members of the Hino Team and the Hino Family, many more services, savings and benefits to the consumer and the community will continue.

Commercial installations and service is our specialty! 

Millions of Americans use propane gas for agricultural, industrial, and transportation applications.  According to Propane.com, propane-powered forklifts produce 19 percent fewer emissions than their gas-powered counterparts.  Propane forklifts are clean, safe, and efficient. They offer the best performance in power and speed and save money on fuel costs.  This is proven by the sheer number of propane-powered forklifts in the U.S – over 670,000!  The Railroad Commission offers free safety and maintenance training on propane forklifts.

We’ve served customers since 1963 – let us serve you, too.

Propane is a clean, versatile energy source used by more than 12.6 million U.S. households for space heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying and more.  In outdoor spaces, residential propane is a widely used energy source for outdoor grills, lighting, and heating for pools and spas.  When electricity goes out, propane is often the energy source that powers standby generators.  Nearly 97% of propane used in the U.S. is produced in North America.  It is non-toxic, colorless, and virtually odorless.  As with natural gas, an identifying odor is added so that it is easily detected in case of a leak.  As an alternative to having a propane tank in your yard, underground storage tanks are a popular option for single-family homes and housing developments.  These large tanks can be buried underground because propane is a non-toxic fuel that doesn’t contaminate aquifers or soil.  It is an approved CLEAN alternative fuel listed in the Clean Air Act of 1990.  Generally, a 500-gallon tank can hold enough propane to meet the annual energy needs of an average four-bedroom home.  Tanks of 1,000 gallons or more may be needed for large homes with swimming pools and hot tubs.
