Gas Company is a privately owned natural gas public utility. Formerly
known as the Upham Gas Company, it was established in 1906, changed
ownership in 1944, and subsequently was purchased in 1980 by the Ramser
family. Mark R. Ramser is currently the president of the company.
As a public utility,
Ohio Cumberland is subject to the supervision and jurisdiction of
the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and the United States Department
Ohio Cumberland currently has over 300 miles of gathering and distribution
lines serving parts of Knox, Ashland, Coshocton, Holmes, Licking,
and Richland counties. We serve about 1750 residential, commercial
and industrial customers.
About 50% of the gas distributed is obtained from local production
sources while the balance is transported by Columbia Gas Transmission
Ohio Cumberland encourages new customer connections in our service
area for new facilities or when converting existing facilities from
another heat source. To obtain an application for new natural gas

If you are moving and transferring service into your name or moving
out of a home or other facility with our service, please contact our
