Kershaw County has a new propane gas provider, located at 3 Roseborough Road in Lugoff across from Sonic on U.S. 1. Great Falls Propane LLC has recently purchased and transformed the old Lugoff Flowers building into a state-of-the-art, interactive gas appliance showroom.
Andy Smith, owner of Great Falls Propane, said he wants to provide one-stop-shopping to local residents for both natural gas and propane appliances.
“Our goal is to make it easy for our customers to find what they are looking for in quality gas appliances,” he said.
Great Falls Propane offers installation services for most of the appliances it sells. For propane appliance customers, Great Falls Propane offers tank installation with “keep-full” propane service.
“Our mission is to provide propane gas to our customers at the lowest possible price. We are the only propane company in the area that has bulk storage facilities located at both ends of Lake Wateree -- our new facility here in Lugoff and our existing facility in the Great Falls Industrial Park,” said Smith. “By having these two strategically located bulk storage facilities, we can reduce our cost of delivery to our customers, which saves them money.”
Smith has 25 years of experience in the propane gas business. Throughout the 1990s, he said, he was a key employee in SCANA’s Propane Division based in Sumter. He is native South Carolinian, past president of the South Carolina Propane Gas Association and holds a degree in Civil Engineering from Clemson University. Great Falls Propane is a member of the National Propane Gas Association and the South Carolina Propane Gas Association.
Smith has named Stephen Catoe as the manager for the new gas appliance headquarters operation in Lugoff.
“Stephen is a native to the area, has an impeccable reputation, and is well thought of by his customers,” said Smith. “I am confident that, given an opportunity, Stephen will exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Great Falls Propane Gas Appliance Headquarters is opened Monday through Saturday; the phone local number is 438-6426. Smith’s office number is 877-BULK-GAS.
