Local supplier seals gas deal

IPSWICH businesses and households can buy bottled gas from a local supplier for the first time following the opening of the Agas National head office and retail facility at Dinmore.

Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale officially opened the plant on Friday.

The $2 million facility will supply bottled gas including LPG, nitrogen, oxygen and helium to commercial, industrial and residential customers across the region.

Speaking at the opening, Agas National owner Adrian Flack said he made the decision to set up shop in Ipswich after servicing the region as a gas reseller from the back of his ute for the past three years.

“After a couple of months I realised that there was a gap in the market for a locally based business to provide great customer service,” Mr Flack said.

As well as the commercial sector, Agas National is also providing Ipswich residents who use gas for heating or cooking with an alternative, including those who only use gas use for barbecuing.

“If your barbecue gas bottle needs refilling you don't have to take it down to the hardware store or service station and wait around for it to be refilled any more,” he said.
