David Gable recalls how he grew into this business

My dad, Mike Gable, came to this country with a burning desire to succeed when he and my mother took over the business with 250 customers a long time ago.

As a kid, I grew up listening to him tell me about taking care of the customer. He worked every Saturday and many hours late at night. When I looked at this business from the eyes of a teenager, I vowed to never get involved in such a demanding industry.

Years later, I accompanied my parents to a propane gas convention and was surprised by the number of big companies there. I met some of the “Captains of the Industry” and other players in the propane business and began to rethink my future.

I returned to the business in the early 80s and needed to learn everything from the ground up.

Hocon has grown into a company serving more than 35,000 customers in Connecticut and New York. I am proud of the success we have been able to achieve in serving our customers with reliable supply and quality products—all delivered by great people. I have never forgotten my dad’s advice about taking care of the customer and I’ve worked hard to stay loyal to his vision.

It is our hope to provide you with a level of service that is beyond your expectations, in line with what my dad always strived to achieve. I welcome your inquiries and our team is always ready to lend you a helping hand.

Thank you,
