Metro Services Inc. (MSI), Chattanooga, Tenn., announced a partnership with Israel’s Palziv Group and DTO Gas Energy to provide Israeli companies with natural gas regulatory development and infrastructure.

Palziv, a foam manufacturer, is the first company selected by the Israeli government to diversify from propane to natural gas – a first for Israel’s private sector. MSI will help Palziv develop rules and regulations for this process. MSI will work with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and fabricating gas equipment that will allow Palziv to run either fuel as needed.

According to Owner/CEO Bill Norton, “MSI is committed to meeting the emerging demand for commercially available natural gas in Israel which will drive industrial growth and economic progress.”
