Company summary

Suburban is a nationwide marketer and distributor of a diverse array of products to meet the energy needs of our customers, specializing in propane, fuel oil and refined fuels, as well as the marketing of natural gas and electricity in deregulated markets.  The company was founded in 1928 and is based in Whippany, New Jersey.

In the residential and commercial markets, propane is used primarily for space heating, water heating, clothes drying and cooking. Industrial customers use propane generally as a motor fuel to power over-the-road vehicles, forklifts and stationary engines, to fire furnaces, as a cutting gas and in other process applications. In the agricultural market, propane is primarily used for tobacco curing, crop drying, poultry brooding and weed control.

Propane is clean burning and, when consumed, produces only negligible amounts of pollutants, that's why propane is the safe, “go anywhere, do anything” green energy source for all seasons.

Company culture

Micro-managed from region.
Not accepting of new ideas.
Very safer focused, which is good in this industry

Support from Management

Goals were for the most part realistic if there is was normal weather. They did top down budgeting with little room for changes even given market conditions

Teamwork

For the most part, outside plant worked well together. Office staff not so much

Gender Equality

Absolutely not!!
