A Little History

Wells Propane was formed in 1956 by Daryl and Phyllis Eriksen, to serve the towns of Wells, Wendover and Jackpot, Nevada. They started out with three customers, one in each town. Since then Wells Propane Inc has grown to serve over 4000 customers throughout most of North Eastern Nevada. Wells Propane continues to hold the oldest Class 1 Propane Dealers license in the State of Nevada.

In 1990 Daryl and Phyllis retired and turned the company over to their three sons, Mike, Jay and Tom, continuing the locally owned tradition. In addition. three of Daryl and Phyllis’s grandchildren now work for the company, Deveron in Spring Creek, and Kelly and Lindy working in the Wells Headquarters.
