Lud Seaman, Lyons LP Gas Company

“After more than 40 years in the industry, I transitioned my family business to EDP in 2016. I'd been approached by other suitors, but was most comfortable with EDP and their sense of maintaining Lyons' smaller, hometown feel, including the company's name. EDP was friendly and answered my concerns about how my employees and customers would be treated. I anticipated difficulties in negotiating and at closing, but it wasn't that way at all. EDP was easy and cooperative to work with, and very forthcoming. Make sure you talk to EDP. I'd recommend them to anybody.”

“We got comfortable selling to EDP by watching their local managers, and how the employees transacted business. Plus, EDP was professional and treated us with respect, even having CEO Tom Knauff answer several of our concerns. In fact, from top on down, EDP has shown to be a first-class operation. They were considerate from the initial contact through due diligence and closing. We're glad CC Propane won't just get folded into a bigger industry play, as a different partner might have done.”

“Over the years, several companies approached us about buying our business but we turned them all down. Last year, when we knew the time was right, we made the call to EDP. We had done our homework and knew that EDP would be the right partner. We're glad we did. We share the same beliefs about building a strong culture, so it's no surprise to me that EDP is taking good care of our employees, committed to exceptional customer service and continuing to support our involvement in the local community.”

“Not only did I like the swift four-month process of transitioning my business to EDP in 2014, I've stayed on and now serve as Director of Sales for all EDP operations. EDP addressed my desire to expand Quality Propane and my concerns about who would value what I'd built, my employees and my customers. They took a hands-on approach with a four-hour service ride-along, made a proposal within 30 days and had a reasonable due diligence process. Thanks in large part to EDP, I enjoy what I do. If I didn't, I'd be gone tomorrow.”

“Selling to EDP was the best thing I've done in my life. They maintained my community commitments and my staff, plus, they are as nice as they can be, from the top down - honest, forthcoming and cooperative. EDP's offer was more than fair.”
