Since its foundation, Delta Liquid Energy has been family owned and operated. Originally organized under the name of San Luis Butane Distributors, the company adopted the DLE moniker in 1987. Current DLE president Bill Platz and Cindy Platz-Belmont, Vice President, now lead the company, following in the footsteps of their father, Frank Platz, and their grandparents Harry and Iva Platz. DLE takes pride in the family company culture they have developed with their 110 employees. Over the years, they have made significant contributions to Cuesta College, located in San Luis Obispo, Calif. as well as many local charities and sports teams.
Delta Liquid Energy has been an industry leader in promoting a low carbon footprint through the use of propane motor fuel equipment and propane vehicles. Bill, a Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo graduate, and Delta Liquid Energy Vice President Robert Jacobs serve on the prestigious board of the national Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). Bill also serves as Chairman of PERC. Much of the DLE fleet runs on propane which produces up to 80% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than their gasoline or diesel counterparts.
