R. J. Welch, affectionately called “Mr. Rube” by his business associates and friends, was the founder of Welch Butane. Mr. Rube established Welch Butane at Naples, Texas in early November 1949, with one bobtail truck and no bulk storage. He quickly became known and respected by his peers and area citizens for his self-made business expertise and wisdom. Welch Butane grew to become one of the largest independent Propane marketers in the Northeast Texas area.  When Mr. Rube retired January 1, 1968, the business was passed on to his son, Hershel G. Welch. Over the years, Welch Butane acquired other Propane gas dealerships, which were consolidated into the overall operations. In 1984, Welch Butane became a registered corporation. Operating under its own corporate charter, the company was renamed “WelchGas”, dropping the “Butane” term and moving to a more modern trade name.  The late 1970s and early 1980s brought about the addition of retail locations in Daingerfield and Bogata. In 1987, Hershels son Wes joined the family operation and they soon opened another retail location. On November 1, 1987, the retail office in Mt. Pleasant was opened and then relocated to its present site in October 2001.  The Welch family operated a propane transport company – Welch Energy – from 1977 until 2007. The transport company supplied propane to all WelchGas locations over the years, as well as to other surrounding propane dealers in the Northeast Texas area.

On September 1, 2007, Wes Welch acquired ownership of WelchGas. The company now operates five retail locations. The home office is located in Mt. Pleasant. A branch office is located in Daingerfield and on December 1, 2011, WelchGas opened a location in New Boston. Market conditions continued to pave the way for more expansion, and in August 2012, WelchGas opened a branch in Texarkana under the name Texarkana Propane. In May of 2015, a fifth location was established in Atlanta, Texas. WelchGas now provides Propane Service to 10 counties in the Northeast Texas region – Bowie, Cass, Morris, Marion, Harrison, Upshur, Camp, Titus, Franklin and Red River. The company provides a wide variety of services in the agricultural, commercial, and residential propane market.  The “Welch” name is synonymous with “Texas Propane Gas Association” as many members of the WelchGas family, beginning with Mr. Rube, have been active in the Texas and National Propane Gas Associations. Five members of the Welch family have served as President of the Texas Propane Gas Association – George Welch, Sr., 1971-72, Hershel G. Welch, 1984-85, George Welch, Jr., 1996-97, Wes Welch, 2001-2002, and Tommy Granberry, 2005-2006. April Welch, Executive Vice President of WelchGas, currently serves on the Texas Propane Gas Association Board of Directors.  Known throughout Texas and the nation for their strong beliefs and efforts in Propane Marketing, WelchGas was the winner of the NPGA National Marketing Achievement Award in 1985 and the recipient of the 1995 Texas Railroad Commission “Propane SuperStar” award for marketing. WelchGas continues the tradition of a strong marketing campaign focused on “Customer Service” and building strong relationships with their customers.

  • Besides longer engine life and cleaner air, youll save on motor fuel excise taxes and earn tax deductions with propane vehicles.
