About Superior Propane
Superior Propane is Canada’s leading propane distributor and has been a trusted propane supplier for over 70 years. Through Canada’s largest propane distribution network, Superior is able to serve homes and businesses virtually anywhere in the country. Superior Propane offers customers industry-leading digital solutions that make managing propane use easier and more convenient.
Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, Superior employs more than 1,500 people and delivers over 1.5 billion litres of propane annually through a distribution network of approximately 200 locations strategically located to serve customers from coast to coast in Canada.
TOWARDS A CARBON-FREE FUTURE
Climate change is one of the largest challenges facing the world and we are committed to being part of the solution. We deliver low-emission propane to help industry and communities displace carbon-intense fuels including diesel, gasoline and heating oil with a cleaner, safer alternative.
Recently, Superior Propane has partnered with CHARBONE Hydrogen Corporation to provide green hydrogen to commercial and industrial customers. Using our existing and vast distribution network, Superior Propane will supply and distribute hydrogen from CHARBONE’s green hydrogen facilities located in Selkirk, Manitoba and Sorel-Tracy, Québec.
We have also made it a priority to reduce GHG emissions in our own operations by displacing diesel in our heavy-duty trucks with clean, safe hydrogen fuel. Alongside our hydrogen cleantech partners, we are retrofitting heavy duty diesel engines and integrating cleaner-burning hydrogen to bring us closer to meeting ours and Canada’s emissions reduction targets.
SECURE FUEL SUPPLY
We have extensive propane storage capacity in Canada and access to U.S. supply when needed. With access to an abundant supply and cross-border storage points, Superior Propane can reliably deliver to our customers. Superior proactively plans for seasonal demand by purchasing and storing increased inventory. We also offer:
LARGEST DISTRIBUTION FOOTPRINT
Superior has diverse transportation methods and contracts, and can mobilize quickly to increase inventory in preparation for changing demand. We have employed all channels including truck, rail, barge, pipeline and plane in order to get propane to our customers. We have the largest distribution footprint in Canada and are the only propane distributor in North America, with more than 170 storage and distribution points to serve almost 200,000 customer locations in more than 10,000 communities.
EVENT PREPAREDNESSWhether it’s unforeseen weather or critical disruptions to transportation, our tank sensor technology allows us to remotely monitor tank levels and prioritize critical deliveries. Customers can also monitor their fuel levels through mySUPERIOR™️ online or our mobile app. Superior also maintains proactive customer communications and notifications as regular course as well as during critical events (ex. Supply Chain Disruptions 2014 due to Shale Gas Exports [wet crops, extreme cold winter] and the CN rail strike in 2019).
Superior Plus’ Specialty Chemicals business is focused on the production and supply of sodium chlorate and chlor-alkali products.
