Propane for Warehouses and Manufacturing

Propane is a safe, reliable alternative fuel resulting from natural gas processing. It makes an excellent energy source for many manufacturing and warehouse applications. You can use propane tanks for everything from powering equipment to supplying energy to your facility.

Shipley Energy provides many commercial propane services, including delivering propane tanks for manufacturing facilities and warehouses in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Using Propane in Your Warehouse or Manufacturing Facility

When you seek a versatile energy source, propane is an excellent option. Propane uses for manufacturing facilities and warehouses include:

  • Propane heaters: Use propane to create a mobile, off-the-grid heating source. This solution works exceptionally well for temporary tented production areas where central heating is impractical.
  • Complete facility powering: Purchase propane to heat your entire operation. The highly efficient fuel can maintain comfortable temperatures for your employees while keeping operations going.
  • Powering forklifts: Internal combustion forklifts often use 33-pound propane cylinders to keep equipment running the entire shift. This fuel source is safe for indoor use and easy to switch out.

Why Run a Warehouse on Propane?

Propane for Warehouses
Many manufacturing and warehousing operations choose to operate on propane for its many advantages. Here are a few of the top reasons to use propane for your equipment or heating:

  • Forklifts that run on propane operate more cost-effectively and more cleanly than diesel ones.
  • Heaters or other equipment operating on propane run cooler and burn cleaner, increasing equipment life spans.
  • You can save on costs when buying propane versus other fuel sources.
  • Your facility can meet sustainability goals by choosing propane, an energy source with reduced emissions.
