Flogas expands its presence in the north east


Leicestershire gas supplier Flogas has reached agreement with Sunderland bottled gas dealer City Hotline Gas to supply customers in the north east.

Lee Gannon, MD of Syston-based Flogas, says: “We’re pleased to have added City Hotline Gas to the Flogas family. Garry and Simon Gray have built a wonderful reputation with their customers over the years, and we’re proud to have them on board as we continue to provide their customers with the very best service and expertise.

“This is an exciting time for Flogas Britain in Sunderland and elsewhere. Deals such as this one with reputable, committed and experienced bottled gas companies, form a crucial part of our ambitious programme for extensive, national coverage, and will ensure we remain local and national energy experts in 2017 and beyond.”

City Hotline Gas has been serving homes and businesses in Sunderland, Wearside, and County Durham for more than 35 years. Garry Gray said: “We have been examining our options going forward for some time, so cutting a deal with a nationally acclaimed supplier like Flogas was something we couldn’t resist. We have reached a certain size from where further growth will be difficult to achieve without full support from our partner suppliers.” 

Simon added: “I will be staying on in the business along with our existing experienced and loyal team. This deal will ensure our customers receive a reliable gas supply and continue to receive the highest level of customer service, whilst benefitting from attractive competitive prices in the Wearside and outlying areas and there are plans to extend our service into areas further afield right across the North East and Teesside.  We would like to thank our customers for their tremendous loyalty stretching back over many years and we look forward to playing an active role in advising Flogas in the best interests of our customers.”
