Letter from the owner
Lambert J. Van Andel Sr. began Van Andel Propane when he took over a hardware store in Ravenna in 1958. He sold general hardware and appliances under the Ravenna brand. He began the propane end of things when he became a dealer for Dri-gas delivering 60# size propane cylinders for his customers to fuel their gas stoves, water heaters, and clothes dryers. Soon after he started selling 500 gallon tanks for home heating using a 1951 Ford delivery truck to refill the tanks with propane purchased from a friendly competitor several miles away.
We like to think because of good service and fair pricing with no extra fees, we have expanded to service the needs of our customers. Residential, farm, and commercial / industrial customers have come to depend on our dependable service for their needs. We have quietly been providing that service without gimmicks and a lot of hoopla. We welcome you to experience our brand of propane service.
Lambert J. Van Andel Jr.
