About Us

ButanGas, the origins

The story of ButanGas began on 13 December 1948 when Iosif Constantin Drăgan – who had moved from Romania to Italy in 1940 to study political science and economics at the University of Rome, having graduated from the Law Faculty in Bucharest – realised the huge potential of LPG, a product that was little know after the war, and founded ButanGas Spa in Italy.


ButanGas Romania began in 1996 and is now one of the biggest LPG distributors on the Romanian market. It is a proponent of regulating the distribution of propane and LPG for cars.

We were the first to bring propane storage tanks for home or industrial use to Romanian. The first tank was fitted in August 1996.


Also, it was our company that implemented the first skid system for automotive LPG. It was the only authorized supply facility for cars in the country for more than a year.
