"This acquisition complements our existing operations and is consistent with our strategy to grow the Energy Distribution business through add-on acquisitions of propane companies and immediately leverage our solid platform," said Luc Desjardins, Superior's President and CEO. "We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Caledon customers and team," said Greg McCamus, President of Superior Propane. "With such dedicated staff and a loyal customer base, the Caledon purchase represents a great fit with our business and company culture. The Caledon division will continue to operate from existing locations in Bolton, ON and Winnipeg, MB to ensure customers are supported with the high level of service they have come to expect."
