New US filling facilities provide gas and jobs

US filling facility

Energy and employment are essential to most people, and 2 recently opened liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling facilities in the US have brought both to the local communities. With thousands of filled cylinders every single day and up to 45 new employees, the plants strengthen MAKEEN Energy’s presence in the US and benefit the areas and people near Reading, Michigan, and Seguin, Texas.

For the last couple of years, our North American team has been working to establish and run plants that fill LPG cylinders – and plans for Reading and Seguin have now been turned into reality. Even though 2020 was marked by corona obstacles, our US colleagues worked dedicatedly to continue their project and add more LPG filling facilities to the flock. And with good reason, as the need for energy is omnipresent, whether a pandemic is around or not.

Well-connected locations with a steady output

The locations of the 2 new filling facilities are in no way coincidental. Our US team has put many thoughts and efforts into finding beneficial places – and Reading and Seguin fully live up to that.

Reading is near Detroit, Indianapolis, and several other large cities in the northern part of the US. Seguin is located in southern Texas, close to San Antonio, one of the fastest growing American cities, as well as to Austin, Houston, and other big cities. As a result, both plants are now filling LPG cylinders in areas with many people and a high demand for gas.

However, the demand for gas in the US fluctuates during the year, and the peak in the summer months is primarily the result of busy barbeques around the country. Nevertheless, Americans use gas all year round, and the steady supplies from Reading and Seguin will easily come into use. Each facility fills 3-4,000 cylinders every single day – and they will help meet the needs of the communities nearby.

The land of opportunities

MAKEEN Energy supports the North American LPG industry with 8 filling plants spread across the USA. From here, our crew fills our customers' LPG cylinders at plants owned, operated and maintained by MAKEEN Energy. To see where the plants are located, and the areas they cover, check out this map.

One line completed – and more in the making

With the Seguin plant up and running, our team in the US now fills gas cylinders straight through the heart of the US. It was the last puzzle piece in a line from north to south – from Chicago, Illinois, through Springfield, Missouri, and ending in Seguin, Texas.

But the plans do not stop here. Our US team wants to add more filling facilities to their list and provide gas to even more Americans. At the time of writing, the next step has already been taken to build yet another line down the country. This time, the locations are near the west coast, and recently a new plant opened its doors for the first time in Pahrump, Nevada. To complete this line, more facilities will be added in the future – and more lines might join as well.
