Simmons Foods Inc. has announced the sale of its propane business to MFA Oil Co. Simmons Energy Solutions is a small propane supply company with locations in Decatur, Ark., and Jay, Okla. Terms of the sale are not being disclosed. 

“As a food company, we have determined that propane operations are outside of our core business,” Simmons Foods David Jackson chief operating officer said. “We are confident that we leave our customers in good hands with MFA Oil, and we will work together to ensure a seamless transition process.”

Jackson continued, “We believe their business approach and culture is a good fit for our valued customers and team members. We are pleased that MFA Oil plans to extend job offers to the majority of team members currently working in this operation. Our human resources team will be assisting all affected team members with the transition.”

MFA Oil is a farmer-owned cooperative headquartered in Columbia, Mo. Since 1929, the company has had a reputation for providing quality fuels, propane and other petroleum products to customers.
