Our History

historyThe DeClerk LP Gas Company traces its founding all the way back to 1938 when rothers, A.C. (Ollie) DeClerk and Paul DeClerk, worked as an accountant and salesman, respectively, in Pocahontas, AR for a local appliance store. Soon thereafter, their entrepreneurial spirit took charge. They secured the local franchise for Electrolux kerosene refrigerators and began selling them in the Pocahontas and surrounding communities.

The DeClerk and DeClerk partnership had begun. After a short period a Little Rock salesman showed them how to convert the kerosene operating system to butane. Along with other butane burning appliances the DeClerk brothers began selling and installing underground butane tanks and making butane truck deliveries to their growing number of customers.

Butane gas gave way to propane in the years that followed because of propane’s greater ease of handling. In the early 1970’s three of Ollie’s sons went to work for him; and today his son Bill owns and operates the company under the name of DeClerk LP Gas.

Propane Powered Irrigation Engines

Propane engines burn cleaner, require less oil changes and cost up to half that of a comparable diesel unit. The fuel savings alone will pay for a propane unit in a few years.

Propane Displacement Injector

By displacing up to 50% of the diesel with lower priced propane, fuel costs can be reduced by as much as $1.50 per gallon. PDDI improves the performance of the diesel engine, reduces oil changes and saves money.

For Automotives

Vehicles fueled by propane, the most widely used alternative fuel, emit fewer harmful emissions and are supported by a robust refueling infrastructure.

Propane vehicle conversions brings reliable, low-emission vehicles and equipment  that were originally designed to operate on gasoline or diesel to fleets, industry, and the everyday driver. These innovative trucks, vans, buses, and other vehicles and equipment can provide public transportation, expedite manufacturing operations, and serve as personal vehicles while in many cases producing fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline or diesel options.

Autogas is the perfect solution for not only light/medium duty trucks and other vehicles, but forklifts, lawn & garden mowers, buses and other fleet.

For Construction

Flexible, efficient, and available anywhere, propane is the energy source of chose for building improvements as well as new home construction.

Building with propane means you are not at the mercy of a public utility. And with the option of aboveground or underground storage tanks, propane professionals can install and connect home appliances and other applications on your schedule. Propane also provides job-site flexibility by providing gas energy for portable generators and temporary construction heaters.

Other benefits of building with Propane include:

  • It’s clean energy.  Propane gives off less than half of the greenhouse gas emissions that electricity does, considering that most of the nation’s electric power is fueled by coal-fired power plants.
  • It reduces energy costs. Propane appliances are typically far more efficient than their electric counterparts.
  • It supports modern lifestyles. Propane provides your customers with the ability to choose first-rate amenities regardless of where they live. Propane space heating is available in both forced-air and hydronic forms, and it  doesn’t depend on the availability of natural gas or electricity. And, propane generators can provide peace of mind for customers in locations that experience rolling blackouts or frequent storm-related power outages.
