Providing First-in-Class Service & Commitment

Carl Krause | A Pro Driver Delivering All-Around Excellence

Carl works out of our Dalton, PA facility as a Bulk Driver.  Reporting to Joe Roggio, Pennsylvania/Western New York Area Manager, Carl has been an integral part of our Paraco family since October 2016.  Known by his team for his consistent reliability, putting customer service and safety at the forefront, Carl is responsible for several key tasks which include providing outstanding customer service; adhering to industry safety standards; making sure his route of bulk propane deliveries is punctual, consistent, reliable and safe; and performing daily vehicle inspections as required.

Joe nominated Carl to this month’s Spotlight stating, “As someone who came to Paraco with little industry knowledge, Carl continues to flourish in his role here. Carl puts our customers first and is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Carl is an iatrical member of our delivery team here in Northeast PA.”

Jeff Palen, General Manager – Northeast Region adds, “Carl is a valued member of the Dalton, PA team.  He is always quick to step up and support us with deliveries outside of his assigned area.”  We’re grateful for his hard work and appreciate the focus on providing an excellent customer experience.”
