“Smoky Mountain Propane is a quality acquisition in a new market territory,” MFA Oil Chief Operating Officer Mark Fenner said. “The Pruetts have built a nice business based on providing value to their customers, and this fits really well with our new strategic direction to grow our operations and expand the MFA Oil footprint.”

MFA Oil Company is a farmer-owned cooperative and one of the top ten propane companies in the United States. MFA Oil has also obtained Henderson Oil out of Columbia, Mo.; McCorkell Oil out of Piedmont, Mo.; Rowland Oil from Jackson Mo.; the refined fuel operations of MFA Cooperative; and American Petroleum Marketers from Booner Springs, Kan.
