AvantiGas announces Listers acquisition



Avanti Gas Limited is delighted to announce the acquisition of Lister Gases, the specialist suppliers of bulk and cylinder gases which have been serving commercial customers in the West Midlands for nearly 50 years. Lister Gases’ headquarters in Wednesbury and its depot in Cradley Heath will continue to operate just as before.

AvantiGas managing Director Neil Murphy commented: "As a leading national supplier of LPG, AvantiGas is looking to expand our regional coverage as a bottled gas provider. Listers is a trusted local supplier with a long track record of expertise in the cylinders market, and there are synergies too on the bulk LPG supply side where AvantiGas has a great deal of experience.

"It’s a partnership of expertise, and both companies share the same customer-focused ethos, where we always strive to put customer service and safety as our top priorities. This local investment demonstrates our continuing commitment to give the best and most comprehensive service to our bulk and bottled gas customers in the West Midlands.”

Lister Gases General Manager Stuart Green said: "We’re really excited about the AvantiGas acquisition. The two companies are a very good fit. We’ve been approached by other companies in the past, but this development was the right one for Listers and for our customers. It means we now have the resources to enhance our local services while ensuring the continued growth of the company.”

Lister Gases Limited was established as a company in December 2008 to focus on cylinder and bulk LPG supply. After almost 50 years of supplying Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) throughout the Midlands region, Lister Gases has now become a part of the AvantiGas family, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of LPG providing energy solutions for homes, business and industry.

The business continues to operate from its head office at Bridge Street, Wednesbury in the West Midlands and we also have a depot at Forge Lane, Cradley Heath where we supply a full range of LPG cylinders and have an Autogas refuelling facility.

We supply LPG for many varied applications and work closely with specialist Original Equipment Manufacturers as partners to ensure that the key benefits and unique features of LPG are communicated through the supply chain. In times where we are all encouraged to look at ways to ‘go green’ and be aware of our impact on the environment, LPG provides ‘Exceptional Energy’ and is the lowest carbon fossil fuel available in off-grid areas. We take pride in providing excellent levels of customer service and strive to achieve a friendly and personable relationship with our customers. Our overriding aim is to achieve this with competitive prices and in doing so ensure value for money.

If you’re an existing LPG user with one of our competitors and are considering a change of LPG supplier, please let us have the opportunity to talk to you and quote for your business. If you’re an existing customer and are simply seeking information, thank you for your continued custom. I hope you find our website informative and are able to locate the information required.

LPG vital to meet the UK’s Carbon Emissions targets

UKLPG, the trade association of the LP Gas industry, is urging the government to ensure liquefied petroleum gas (LP gas) plays a key role in plans to meet the nation’s carbon reduction targets in the future. 

Check out the link from our trade association for more information on how LPG can really make a difference to the UK’s target emissions.



LP Gas is on the increase in the Forklift Truck Sector!!

As many companies are trying to reduce their carbon foot print, LP gas is becoming the preferred choice for many Fork lift truck companies. In a traditionally diesel dominant market, LP Gas proves to be a more preferred choice of fuel, as many organisations are realising not just the environmental benefits but also the cost reductions, and this is exactly what we did for E R Birch and Sons!!

Lister Gases teamed up with Mitsubishi Trucks to help provide a tailor made solution for E R Birch in making their forklift truck operations much more efficient. With Lister gases reliable Bulk tanks storage and self fill system in place, we’ve made ER Birch’s accuracy of fuel consumption even more effective so they know exactly what they are using in a clear and precise way.

A good example is provided in the link below, so see for yourselves how Lister Gases LP Gas can benefit your organisations...
