Once the acquisition is complete, Rosen Energy will operate under the McDougall Energy brand as its Kingston office. Rosen Energy has been serving the Kingston area since 1875, supplying liquid fuel (unbranded heating oil, diesel and gasoline) to home and commercial customers, HVAC sales and installation, equipment servicing, service plans, and financing.


“This is an exciting opportunity for both businesses to come together and strengthen the home heat and commercial offerings for customers in the Kingston region, with a plan for future growth,” says Darren McDougall, president, McDougall Energy Inc.  “McDougall Energy is a proud family owned business, and we look forward to joining the community with the dedicated Rosen Energy team who customers rely on and trust, thanks to their exemplary customer service and longstanding staff.”

The company is a trusted distributor and marketer of propane, Esso and Shell branded home heating oil, fuel and lubricant products. McDougall Energy owns a network of Esso and Shell branded retail stations and its own proprietary Pump retail brand. Its business solutions include bulk delivered fuels, lubricants and specialty fluids; wheel-to-wheel and into-equipment refueling; and access to the coast-to-coast Esso Commercial Cardlock network.  McDougall Energy’s myAccount customer portal offers customers a convenient way to view and manage their account online, anytime, anywhere. McDougall Energy has also been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 10 consecutive years.

Merle Koven, owner of Rosen Energy says: “I am confident that my late father, Harry Rosen and my late husband, Phil Koven would have approved this opportunity for Rosen Energy Inc. to join this respected company, McDougall Energy. Both organizations share similar values and a commitment to excellence while providing our customers and community with reliable quality fuel and HVAC products. Our guaranteed dependable service affords our clients year-round peace of mind. Rosen employees are amazing. Their dedication is what has made us truly stand out in the industry. It is because of our employees, that we have established long lasting and trusting relationships with our customers. I look forward to seeing what’s ahead and I am proud that our team will continue to be a part of the McDougall Energy family.”

Over the past several months, McDougall Energy has worked closely with Rosen Energy owners in reaching this agreement, ensuring that the transition is seamless for Rosen Energy employees and customers located in the Kingston area. Family values and community-mindedness remain essential to its success and how business is done. Each of McDougall Energy’s local offices is staffed by team members who live and work in the community and are committed to continuing to build and maintain strong customer relationships.

The acquisition is scheduled to close on May 31, after which time Rosen Energy customers will continue to rely on the same great team as always who will continue to serve them, just now under the McDougall Energy brand. Any changes to customer accounts, such as account numbers and billing information, will be communicated to customers after June 1, once details are confirmed and the acquisition is final. McDougall Energy’s team is working closely with Rosen Energy to finalize the details of the acquisition and making the process as easy as possible for customers and partners.
