Knapp is more than your energy company.
We’re your neighbors.
Knapp Energy is now part of Crystal Flash, an employee owned energy company. Knapp Energy has been serving southwest Michigan for over 60 years. Because we call this area home, we don’t consider our customers to be accounts, we think of them as neighbors. That means doing all the extra little things without being asked. And always being there when we’re needed.
While most propane gas, heating oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, and industrial lubricants are pretty similar, the companies who deliver them aren’t. If our neighborly approach sounds good to you, give us a call. We’re looking forward to meeting you.
New ownership… continued excellence!
Steve Nederhoed founded Knapp Energy in 1954 as Nederhoed Oil Company before his son-in-law, Bob Knapp, purchased the company in 1984 and changed the name to Knapp Oil Co. Knapp’s son, Dave, has run the company since his father’s retirement in 1999.
In September of 2017 Dave Knapp looking to start a new chapter in his life, sold Knapp Energy to Crystal Flash an employee owned energy company based in South West Michigan. Dave chose Crystal Flash as a successor that most closely mirrored the business ethics and values of Knapp Energy. A major factor in Dave’s decision was Crystal Flash’s willingness to keep the business intact by continuing with the same Knapp Energy employees to support the same high quality products and services the Knapp Energy customer’s have enjoyed over the past 60+ years.
