Eastern Iowa Propane & Petro
In 1982 Brent Seeser (who is now owner, mgr of E.I.P.) graduated from the University of Iowa with a teaching degree. Wavering on the idea of teaching, he approached his dad about other business opportunities.
Jack Seeser was a well seasoned entrepreneur. He had been involved in many successful business ventures. His response to Brent was “There are many opportunities out there, but you must be willing to put in the hours to fulfill the needs and expectations of the customers.” He also said “You must treat the customer fair and sell your product at a reasonable rate.”
During this time a local propane company decided to expand their business into the fertilizer business (which Jack was in at the time). Jack said if they want to be in the fertilizer business, we might as well be in the propane business. And that’s where Brent’s’ business arose. Eastern Iowa Propane set their first propane storage tank in September 1983. Jack managed the propane business till he lost a courageous 4 year battle with cancer March 1, 2006.
As Jack has built, we will continue to build, and continue to fulfill his vision-
