Oil Distribution in County Durham
Meet The Team
Simpson Fuels Ltd has been a well established firm for over 15 years, the directors of the firm Richard and Lisa decided to start the business up after serving the region with solid fuel, being one of the longest trading coal merchants in the area. As the market was stretching into the oil industry hard and fast they felt that this was time to expand and branch out into the fuel oil industry. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength and the customer base has increased a lot more than they could have ever anticipated.
Richard is the son of Norman who is the name of the solid fuel business which is managed by Richard but Norman still keeps busy with his farm and attends the local marts which both companies sponsor on a regular basis. Lisa, Richards's wife makes sure all runs smoothly in the office along with help and support from her daughter Hayley.
Steven and Ben are our main tanker drivers for the fuel oil, who have a great relationship and understanding of our customers' needs, knowing any special instructions that are required for most customers and deliveries. We strive to keep both of them to a regular area therefore creating good customer relations.
On the coal dept Ian and Ernie have served for over 25 years carrying coal in rain, sleet, snow or shine. Each of them have their own weekly coal rounds, from County Durham to Middlesbrough, to various places in North Yorkshire covering more areas than most other coal merchants. Richard also delivers coal having his own weekly coal rounds but he still helps out with oil deliveries if and when needed.
We believe in first class customer care and with our friendly and helpful team we make sure everyone is treated as a friend as well as a loyal and valued customer and part of our business.
