Business Spotlight of the Week
March 5, 2018
The Bonham Area Chamber of Commerce is highlighting Atmos Energy this week as one of our long time business members. Atmos Energy Corporation's history dates back to 1906 in the Panhandle of Texas. With corporate HQ now in Dallas, the company opened its district office in Sherman in the early 1970s, and they have been supplying natural gas to surrounding areas for the past forty-five years. Within a three county area (Fannin, Grayson and Cooke), Atmos has over forty employees.
Atmos Energy is one of the largest natural-gas-only distributors in the United States. Their regulated distribution operations deliver natural gas to 3 million residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural and public-authority customers. Distribution services are currently provided to more than 1,400 communities in 8 states. The vision of Atmos Energy is to be the safest provider of natural gas services, and to stand out for their exceptional customer service, for being a great employer, and for achieving superior financial results.
The communities Atmos serves are far more than places to do business. They’re where Atmos Energy customers and employees call home, send kids to school, shop, play ballgames, live life. Communities are why Atmos provide safe, reliable delivery of natural gas.
Beyond their work in the natural gas industry, Atmos has given much to our Fannin community. The company supports various civic causes and groups, including: Chambers of commerce, economic development boards, Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Education Foundations, United Way and other community organizations supporting civic and economic growth. The Chamber wants to specially acknowledge this during their spotlight week of March 5th.
