(Hamilton, Bermuda. May 17th, 2012) Bermuda Gas celebrated the 100th anniversary of the introduction of propane gas yesterday, with the Official Opening of its custom-built facility at 25 Serpentine Road. Inviting staff, building contractors, major vendors, Company directors and the media, the official opening event heralds a new phase for Bermuda Gas. For the first time ever all departments now make their home on Serpentine Rd., making it more convenient than ever for customers and staff alike to conduct their business.
The official opening of the completed building featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony performed by a representative from each Bermuda Gas department, lending it a distinctly family flavour. It was followed by a reception with food prepared by local Chef Danny Lim in Bermuda Gas’ own kitchen.
“The building has been constructed to enhance the customer experience. We’re proud of our new building and wanted an opportunity to celebrate its opening with the Bermuda Gas family and suppliers who made it possible. This gives us an opportunity to thank all those involved with its completion,” comments General Manager Judith Uddin. “We will also be hosting a Community Open House this weekend to welcome the public in to experience the Bermuda Gas facility firsthand.”
The new facility consists of an Appliance Showroom, Parts and Service Departments, Customer Care, including bill payments, and Administrative offices. The Gas Distribution Centre, where propane cylinders are maintained and filled, is right around the corner.
“We opted to celebrate our official opening on the 100th birthday of the introduction of propane gas as a tribute to this clean-burning, cost-effective fuel source. I take great pleasure in telling people that switching to a propane-powered appliance can reduce their energy costs by as much as 20%,” says Uddin.
Bermuda Gas is looking forward to the future applications that propane can be employed to deliver to Bermuda. They continue to look for ways to deliver value and believe the new facility will make it more convenient than ever for customers to conduct all of their Bermuda Gas business in one location.
“It has been a major undertaking and we have been extremely gratified by the early warm welcome we’ve received from customers. We look forward to receiving more customers in the days and weeks ahead,” comments Uddin.
Join them at their Open House on Saturday, May 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. “With cooking demonstrations and door prizes, such as microwave ovens and window air conditioners to be won, there has never been a better time to pay us a visit,” according to Judith Uddin.
