The History of Turner Gas
Turner Gas Company was founded in 1939, not long after Liquefied Petroleum Gas was discovered in the early 1900s. The founders of Turner Gas Company were Ivan and George Turner, with the assistance of their father Roy Turner. Roy’s experience in Sales and Management for Associated Oil in the 1920’s led Ivan and George to pursue a dream of owning a family gas company. Ivan and George founded Turner Gas Company in Bishop, California where they served the community for more than 50 years
Ivan’s four sons (Tom, John, Jim and Ken) have all worked for the Company and maintain active roles in the operations and growth of Turner Gas. With the purchase of a propane transport in 1953, the family realized that opportunities were great for becoming a larger retail and wholesale propane supplier. Through the years, Turner Gas successfully developed 7 retail propane locations throughout California and Nevada, while continuing to expand its wholesale propane division.
In 1996, Turner Gas Company made the strategic decision to sell all its retail locations, which enabled the dramatic growth of its wholesale propane and other divisions. After 75 years of continuous operations, Turner Gas continues to be family owned and operated by its second and third generation family members.
