Texas-based Pinnacle Propane plans to spend $2 million to open a multistage propane-tank facility in Goshen, creating 36 Lane County jobs.

“We’re in the propane grill cylinder exchange business. We’re the third-largest exchange company in the U.S.,” said Marty Baker, vice president of operations. “We service 43 states, and we want to have a nationwide presence in 2013.”

The company is growing at 20 to 25 percent a year, he said.
