Clark Gas to expand at South Thomasville Industrial Park

The $10 million investment will create up to 40 new jobs over three years

Clark Gas Co. Propane Cylinder Exchange, headquartered in Florence, has purchased a 50,000-square-foot building owned by the Industrial Board of the city of Thomasville in the South Thomasville Industrial Park. The company plans to invest $10 million in the new facility, creating up to 40 jobs over the next three years.

The new distribution facility will serve seven to eight regional warehouses in as many as four states. Clark Gas Co. services and distributes pre-filled propane cylinders to convenience stores, hardware stores and major retailers. These cylinders are largely used for recreational or commercial applications, such as for gas grills, gas heaters and other uses. Clark Gas also services and distributes larger propane cylinders for forklifts and other propane-powered industrial uses.

“Mr. Clark has had his eye on Thomasville and our spec building in the South Industrial Park for a while now,” said Lee Duke, Thomasville Industrial Development Board chairman. “We are excited to welcome Clark Gas Co. Propane Cylinder Exchange to Thomasville and look forward to working closely with them as they ramp up their operation here.”

Jack Clark, with Clark Gas, added, “We have been strategically planning this expansion for many years. When we looked at a map of Southwest Alabama, we thought Thomasville would be the best location for our new distribution center…Thomasville is right in the middle of the multi-state distribution territory we have identified for the future.”

Thomasville Mayor Sheldon Day and Clarke County Economic Developer Rosalyn Sales both welcomed the company to the city. “We have gotten to know Jack Clark well over the last year and know the jobs and capital investment he is bringing to Thomasville and Clarke County will be a win-win for our county and Clark Gas Co.”
