Company Profile
In 1931, in the midst of the Great Depression, a handful of entrepreneurs founded Southwest Gas Corporation, and soon after began selling liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the dusty railroad town of Barstow, California. Although the fledgling company soon expanded to nearby Victorville, uncertain economic conditions limited its growth potential during the Depression. Southwest Gas grew slowly but steadily over the next 20 years, serving these two High Desert communities. Then, in 1951, Pacific Gas & Electric Company built a high-pressure natural gas transmission line from San Francisco to the Arizona border, where it linked up with El Paso Natural Gas Company's line from Texas. Recognizing the growth potential offered by clean, efficient, economical natural gas, Southwest tapped into the new line and converted its system to the more marketable fuel. This would become a significant milestone in a truly remarkable business success story.
