Fas Gas


Local Business “In Focus”

“In Focus” is a local Economic Development initiative and each month our Forestburg newsletter and Facebook page will provide an “In Focus” review of services and background on a local business.  The objective is to promote local business and encourage residents to shop locally; there by supporting independent business, which will in turn help our community remain strong and vibrant.

Fas Gas – Big Corporate Name; Small Town Friendly Service


This month “In Focus” looks at Envirochem or better known as Fas Gas.  Envirochem (head Company) is owned and operated by Merlin and Louise Badry since 1972.  Fas Gas, the public image, has been in operation since 1990; prior to this it was Petro-Canada and for those who have been around may remember it as Crossroads.  But, Merlin actually has many companies/businesses (in one), which include Fas Gas, Convenience store, Crispy Chicken, Forestburg Wielding and Machine, Crossroads parts & tire shop, Car wash, and Purolator. In total the company employs approx. 15 people, including students from the local school to man the gas pumps.  A one-stop-shop for many of your needs.  Upon entering the Gas station, you will be greeted by a member of the friendly and helpful staff. Dezeree is the day-to-day admin/finance manager of Fas Gas and other business on the premises. Fas Gas is pleased to support our Emergency Service personnel and always has, as a courtesy, hot coffee available for them.  Both Fas Gas and the Parts area have coffee and if you visit the parts area you will meet many local farmers, who have gathered to socialize.  In the Fas Gas coffee area, you will meet both locals and passerby’s who have stopped to take a break. So, whether you areText Box: Fas Gas – (Left to Right) Merlin Badry, Sam Furet, Dezeree Straus, Nikoletta Bownes, Kathy Litt and Henry Wiebe looking for gas, a snack, delicious fried Chicken, wielding needs, parts, tires, a car wash, coffee or just a place to meet and talk; you are more then welcome to come and stay, talk and relax among friends and enjoy the small-town atmosphere.
