Company History


The historic Rookwood Pottery Building, built in 1892, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Stand Energy Corporation is a privately held company formed in 1984 and headquartered in the historic Rookwood Pottery Building located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Judith A. Phillips and Matth Toebben founded the company in response to deregulation in the natural gas industry, which allowed natural gas users to purchase gas from companies other than their local utility.

Stand Energy Corporation’s first customers were large manufacturers. Over time, our customer base has broadened to include industrial facilities of all sizes, commercial and government entities, hospitals, and other large energy users. We also participate in a number of “Customer Choice” programs, in which Stand Energy serves smaller commercial customers.
