Liberty, Mo., (June 13, 2022) — Ferrellgas Partners, L.P., one of the nation’s largest propane retailers, announced today that it is joining the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA). The Washington, D.C.-based trade organization represents approximately 2,400 companies in the U.S. propane industry.

“This is the right time for Ferrellgas to lend its expertise to our industry association,” said Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board James E. Ferrell. “Ferrellgas is focused on growth, and so is the NPGA.”

Stephen Kaminski, NPGA President & CEO agreed. “We are thrilled that Ferrellgas is reengaging with NPGA and the state and regional propane gas associations,” he said. “Having the Ferrellgas team at the table, with their significant experience and depth of knowledge, will bolster NPGA’s representation of the propane industry.”


“We are excited to help support the great work the NPGA is doing to promote the awareness of and availability of green, accessible, affordable, and efficient propane,” added Ferrellgas Chief Operating Officer Tamria Zertuche.

As Ferrellgas’ membership begins, several employee-owners from the company will be joining the NPGA’s committees and councils, including the Audit, Governmental Affairs, PropanePAC Steering, Propane Supply & Logistics, and Technology, Standards & Safety Committees, as well as the Cylinder Exchange and Women in Propane Councils and the Executive Board.

“Ferrellgas is a critical part of the propane industry and their representation in NPGA makes NPGA stronger,” Kaminski added. “We look forward to working together.”
