Our History

Paraco is a family owned and operated business started by Pat Armentano in 1968.
The company began as a distributor of welding supplies and industrial gas in the metropolitan New York region and sold under the name Patsems, Inc.

Over the next few decades, the business transitioned into a propane energy company through acquisitions, internal growth and the divestiture of its industrial gas business.

Today, the company services over 97,000 customers from 17 distribution locations in three states: New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Our corporate offices are located in Rye Brook, NY; our Paraco South offices are located in Charlotte, NC.  

Founder Pat Armentano passed away in February 2010. The company is proud to have been under the leadership of this true and visionary entrepreneur. At the helm currently is his son Joseph Armentano, who serves as the company president. We remain committed to the values that were initially brought to the business when Pat founded it in 1968.
