EDPEDP has purchased the propane assets of Lykins Energy Solutions, a division of World Fuel Services, Inc., located in Southeastern Ohio. EDP will operate the business as Lykins Propane from an office in Milford.

The Lykins Propane office is located about 30 miles northeast of Cincinnati. Three satellite storage facilities in Milford, Mt. Orab and Hamilton, Ohio provide residential, commercial, and agricultural propane service to more than 3,000 customers. All local Lykins Energy Solutions propane employees have joined the EDP family of companies.

Lykins Energy Solutions was founded in 1948 and earned a reputation as a reliable multi-fuel service provider.

“We are happy to announce that Lykins Energy Solutions chose EDP when it came time to transition the company’s propane assets,” said Thomas Knauff, EDP’s President and CEO. “Over the years Lykins employees earned a reputation for superior customer service and we are extremely pleased to welcome their propane team members to EDP.”

EDP is actively seeking to expand its national footprint and diversify through the addition of new retail propane and light fuels operations.
