Propane & Heating Oil

Creating Successful Transactions for Business Owners

Cetane Associates is dedicated to supporting hard-working business owners. Our mission is to provide top-tier representation and advice to those ready to sell their businesses. We understand that owners care deeply about the transition of their company—they care about their staff, their customers, and securing the right price. Our goal is to help you succeed in all these areas by finding a match with the ideal buyer.

With an extensive background in the heating oil and propane industries since 2007, Cetane Associates realizes the unique aspects of these industries—we can position your distinct business in front of interested buyers to maximize the value you receive. Our team is adept at navigating the complexities that may arise and knows how to avoid them or work through them. We know all the potential buyers, their track records, and their fit.

“Thanks for the great work on the business valuation. Some of the benchmarking work you did was eye opening and not only have you succeeded in letting us know a true value of the business, but the valuation also pointed out areas where our business can improve.”

Craig Snyder, Wesson Energy

We were very pleased to have such a knowledgeable and experienced company in our corner with the team at Cetane. It was obvious that they knew the best process and how to get the ball over the goal line. Their advice throughout the process was greatly appreciated and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them.
