Energy Distribution Partners CEO Tom Knauff stated, “We are delighted to have CMP Energy join the EDP family of companies. CMP has been dedicated to providing exceptional propane and heating oil service to customers in Central Pennsylvania for more than 60 years. We recognize that the Mitchell family has developed a loyal following over that period of time and we look forward to making certain that their company’s legacy will be preserved.”

CMP Energy was founded by Robert Mitchell in 1954 as the Mitchell Oil Company. Robert’s son, Jeff Mitchell, took over the business in 1984 and Jeff’s son, Robert (Bobby) continues to be involved in the day-to-day operations. Over a series of mergers and acquisitions, the company evolved into CMP Energy. According to Jeff Mitchell, “We are extremely pleased to announce the transition of CMP Energy to EDP. We are confident the team at EDP will continue our family’s commitment to taking good care of our customers and our active involvement in the local community. Our business is in good hands for the future.”

Energy Distribution Partners is focused on growing its business in the propane and midstream industry. EDP’s strategy is to acquire successful operations, retain the brand name, preserve local management and delegate to those in the local community. This is the fifth transaction for EDP in 2016.
