3 Generations of the Simpson Family

An Independent Family Firm

We are a family run firm proud to be an independent company leading the way in the supply and delivery of domestic heating oil, agricultural oil, solid fuel and premium quality additivies.

In 1962 Norman Simpson started the business, supplying solid fuels to homes and businesses in County Durham and North Yorkshire.

Norman’s son, Richard and his wife, Lisa started the oil business in 1997.  Now joined by the 3rd generation of the Simpson family, Hayley and Jamie the business has developed and grown and we are thankful to our loyal staff who are part of the Simpson team.

We are proud of the high level of customer service we offer. Just as our company is now in the 3rd generation of the Simpson family we serve the same families which our grandfather, Norman did.

We care about our customers and we work hard to supply oil and fuel to keep you warm, working and on the move! Regardless of the weather or conditions.

What Our Customers Say About Us

"We will be leaving the area to live with our daughter in Berkshire. I just wanted to write and thank you for your efficient and kind attention over the years and to wish you all well for the future. I hope the next occupants of this house will continue to buy their fuel from you, for they could not do better."

With our best wishes Mr A - Romaldkirk

"A little thank you for all your 'back breaking work' over the past years. We will see you for dumpy bags though!" from The Andrews family

"Thank you and all the staff that must have had to work really hard to get to all your customers over this very hard weather. Your service is really appreciated and nothing is a problem. Hope that the rest of the winter is not too fierce and you get to take a break." Mrs S Egle, Lanehead, Weardale. 

Nomination for Bouquet of the Week - Northern Echo. "I would like to nominate Simpson Fuels office staff and delivery driver for excellent service.

"I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your wonderful service.
