Highlands Propane was founded in May 1991 by Owner Shawn Bellwood,
Highlands was a small seasonal business serving local Trailer Parks until the fall of 1992 when we expanded to serve Residential (home heating) propane as well. Each year, the demand for propane as an alternative heating fuel continued to grow and so did Highlands. With the help of family and staff, Highlands Propane has grown to be the only independently owned propane facility in the City of Kawartha Lakes
Highlands Propane always provides quality products and service to homes, businesses, cottages, trailers and construction sites throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes and surrounding areas.
Our goal is to provide our customers with professional, small-town service at economical prices. Whether you are searching for a new propane provider, better delivery or service, Highlands Propane is committed to making sure you receive the best possible experience.
Highlands Propane’s professional team works to provide exceptional customer service whenever you need us. From sales to service or from deliveries to accounting Highlands team is here for you.
