12 JULY 2016 | FUEL OIL NEWS | www.fueloilnews.com Prior to Ferrellgas, McGathey was the west division president at Inergy Propane. He served as partner and COO for Liberty Propane, the nation's ninth largest propane company until it was acquired by Inergy Propane in 2011. McGathey led Liberty Propane's 38 retail operations in 11 states and played a key role in business development, growing the company from a small start- up into the ninth largest propane company in the industry in less than six years' time.

CARRYING EXCELA-FLANGE ™ BOBTAIL PRODUCTS Bergquist, Inc., announced it will be offering Excela-Flange™ Bobtail products from Marshall Excelsior Company. Excela-Flange™ is a comprehensive system of truck and plant valves that incorporate a 4 bolt flange on the inlet, the outlet or both of the most commonly used MEC tank and piping valve configurations. One of the highlights of the system is that each valve is universal for piping sizes from 1-1/4" to 2" all in one for both threaded and socket weld connection points, decreasing assembly and maintenance time. The universal design of the flanged products reduces potential leak points throughout the system. Also, in utilizing this system, users will notice many benefits, including carrying less SKU's, increasing flexibility and flow, cre- ating union joints at all flange joints and lowering overall system maintenance costs. ¦ RICHARD JOHANSEN JOINS FUEL MANAGEMENT SERVICES Richard Johansen is the new salesman for Fuel Management Services, Inc.
