The Kolkmeyer family has been in the propane and refined fuels business since 1955. The company was started by Omer and Dorothy Kolkmeyer. The propane company was then called Wellington Oil & Gas Co. and was operated in the home of the Kolkmeyer’s. They began selling propane and home heating fuel with 2 trucks and a bulk plant.

Over the years they branched out and bought a transport truck and trailer to haul propane. The company has been in the trucking business since 1972. They grew the company with the help of their family and employees. When their son Glen graduated high school he began working as a driver and he started expanding the retail propane business by purchasing several local propane companies.

In 1995 Wellington Oil Company had 2 transport trucks and hauled propane, anhydrous, and refined fuels. The company started expanding its trucking business around 2000 and today has grown to 14 transport trucks.

In 2007 the Wellington Oil & Gas Co. sold its refined fuels business to MFA Oil Company and in 2008 sold its retail propane operation to AmeriGas Propane. The name was changed to Energy Transport Solutions and has been expanding and streamlining the transport business and now hauls products in 10 midwest states. ETS provides services to both national and local propane marketers, agri-business, farmers and industrial accounts.

Today, the company’s daily operation is managed by the Kolkmeyer’s third generation, Eric Kolkmeyer as the Vice-President. Eric is a graduate of The University of Central Missouri and a veteran of the United States Army and MO National Guard. Eric serves on the Missouri Propane Gas Association as a District Director and is a MOPERC Executive Board member. Glen Kolkmeyer is currently serving in the Missouri House of Representatives in the 53rd district. Glen is a Past President of the Missouri Propane Gas Association.
