Why ButanGas?

Why choose ButanGas?

ButanGas, a successful story.

ButanGas has been operating on the Italian LPG market since 1948 and is currently one of the leaders in the industry.

ButanGas has always pursued two development strategies: on the one hand, the expansion of the distribution network across the territory, on the other hand, the implementation of significant investments.

About us


ButanGas Romania, one of the largest LPG distribution companies in the Romanian market, opened for business in 1996. In Romania, ButanGas has trail-blazed homologation of propane and autogas distribution.

We placed stable containers for propane storage on the Romanian market for the first time in order to be used by our customers for household or industrial purposes. Thus, the first tank was installed by ButanGas team in August 1996.

In 1999 we put into service the first autogas skid in Bucharest and this was the only authorized supply facility for motor vehicles in the country for more than 1 year.

ButanGas was founded by Prof. Dr. Iosif Constantin Drăgan, born in Lugoj, Romania, on June 20th 1917.
In 1940, after earning his Bachelor of Law degree from the Faculty of Law of the University of Bucharest, he received a scholarship for which he transferred to Italy where he earned his second bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Political and Economic Sciences of “La Sapienza” University in Rome.
Predicting the economic potential of LPG, a less-known product in the post-war period, he founded the ButanGas Group which expanded its business in the coming years by setting up similar companies in Austria, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Morocco and South Africa. He thus created the first nucleus of what was to become ButanGas Dragan Group in the following years, today’s Veroniki Holding Group.

ButanGas now

ButanGas is a multinational group that operates in 7 European countries and is part of the Veroniki Holding Group. Its permanent development, using the most effective tools, has turned ButanGas into a leader in LPG distribution for both domestic and industrial use, via its three distribution channels: cylinders, tanks and autogas.

Our company operates across the country through its 4 branches alongside the business sites and terminal in Navodari.
