Independently-owned Oil NRG, which already has a major presence in rural areas from County Durham down to Lincolnshire, has opened a new depot near Thetford.
“The new depot will allow us to extend our independent fuel distribution from north Lincolnshire down through Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and in to Essex.” explained Oil NRG’s sales director, Jeremy Royle.
From its Hartlepool base on Teesside, Oil NRG also runs depots near Newcastle and York servicing customers throughout County Durham, Humberside, Tyneside, Teesside and Yorkshire and into Lincolnshire.
“With our new added presence in East Anglia, Oil NRG is the only independently-owned fuel distribution business to have a presence in the whole of the east and north of England, from the Thames to the Tweed,” added Jeremy.
Incorporated in 2007, Oil NRG is now run by managing director Roger Peart, ex-owner of third generation F Peart & Co; established in 1930, the company ran for 80 years prior to its sale in 2010.
“We’re delighted that we can continue to provide a higher level of service to our regional customers,” said Roger Peart.
“And the additional volume will mean we’re more than able to match the buying power of our larger national competitors.”
Oil NRG was recently recognised as one of UK’s most inspiring firms in a high-profile list from the London Stock Exchange Group.
“We’re delighted to have been recognised in this year’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report,” said Jeremy.
“This is a significant achievement with Oil NRG being the only oil distributor to be included. This is testament to the outstanding hard work, experience and professionalism of our whole team which provides great services to our customers. We are now looking forward to the opportunity to deliver the same across East Anglia.”
Having grown ‘significantly and consistently’, the company continues to invest in customer service, communications, vehicles, fleet technology and personnel.
