Stephenson’s Rental Services Announces Exclusive Partnership with Canada’s Largest Fuel Supplier.

Two proudly Canadian brands provide a new option for construction and industrial customers’ propane needs.

Mississauga, Ontario (November 12, 2019) - Canadian businesses now have a new option to secure propane for their construction and industrial needs this winter. Stephenson’s is bringing together 65 years of equipment rental experience with Parkland’s expertise and massive scale in the supply of propane. This exclusive partnership provides increased supply of 100 & 420 lb cylinders plus bulk propane. Parkland and Stephenson’s saw an opportunity to improve service levels in the construction and industrial segment by combining their core strengths and expertise to benefit their customers. Guy Manuel, President & CEO comments that “Our customers continue to expect more from us to support their changing needs, reduce costs and improve safety on their sites. Through partnerships like this we can continue to do all three.”

Parkland Fuel Corporation is one of the largest independent suppliers of fuel and petroleum products. Parkland services customers across Canada, the United States, the Caribbean region and the Americas through 3 channels: Retail, Commercial and Wholesale. Parkland optimizes its fuel supply across these 3 channels by operating and leveraging a growing portfolio of supply relationships and storage infrastructure. With annual revenues of $14 Billion, Parkland has a strong supply advantage through locally relevant consumer brands including Ultramar, Pioneer, Blue Wave, PNE and Sparlings to name a few. At the core of their strategy is their people and their values of safety, integrity, community and respect, which is further enhanced through the partnership with Stephenson’s Rental Services.
