Company History

Saltspring Propane was founded by Wayne and Donna Wrigley in 2000. At that time, Salt Spring was serviced by two large companies giving one day per week service each. Starting with one small truck and a hand full of customers, Saltspring Propane has grown to be the main supplier of propane for the island. Our main truck is capable of carrying 6,000 liters, we also have a small truck with four wheel drive for the most difficult driveways and bad weather, and a crane truck for moving and delivering cylinders and tanks. Our drivers are Saltspring born and raised: Chris Jason (Dough Boy) who has been with us since 2006 and Luke Hellicar joined us in 2020. We are pleased to announce that Tristan Stocks has joined our team in 2021. He has lived on Salt Spring Island for over 25 years and maybe familiar to many of you. In the office helping Donna is long time resident (27 years, is she a local yet?) Sue Coates who has been with us since 2010 and in 2019 we added Christine Stocks yet another island born and raised resident. Our son Cole Wrigley has helped us on and off for many years but is now a Licensed Gas Fitter and works part for us when not at his fulltime job. We feel very fortunate to have these awesome people working with us.
