Hino Gas, Oldest Gas Company in Harlingen TX Celebrates Over 58 Years in Business

Sharing a Brief History and Journey of Hino Gas from the 60s to the Modern Era

Hino Gas, the oldest and the most reputed Gas Company in Harlingen TX is pleased to share its 58 years of success with customers, patrons and partners. Alejandro Hinojosa, Sr. started this business in 1963 with one propane bobtail truck. He began delivering propane to homes in rural Cameron and Willacy Counties. It was a one-man show back then where Mr. Hinojosa was a mechanic, dispatcher, accountant, receptionist, technician, and a driver delivering gas to everyone in need. He was considered the most reliable, honest, and hardworking man who would deliver the gas irrespective of how bad the weather was.

It was in 1967 that Alejandro decided to hire his first employee. The business started to grow in the early 70s due to the so-called allocations of gas provided to marketers by producers. Hino Gas Company was very fortunate for being given an allocation. Marketers from Northern Mexico and South Texas could buy gas only from Hino Gas due to this allocation. The name Hino became very popular but had to face competition from major acquisitions that happened between Big Valley Butane in Port Harlingen and Rio Hondo LP Gas. However, nothing could stop Hino Gas from growing as the company already had a loyal customer base in Cameron and Willacy Counties.

It was in the late 70s and early 80s that the company witnessed prominent growth with its first acquisition of Manske Propane in Brownsville followed by Valley Fisheries Propane Company in Port Isabel in 1986. In 1995, Alejandro Jr., son of Alejandro Sr. joined Hino Gas. The company now operates with 26 employees in Harlingen, Brownsville, and Port Isabel.
