Crown Oil UK continues to expand following the opening of a new depot in to service west London at Iver in Bucks. Operating as Speedy Fuels and Lubricants, the branch will offer conventional fuels alongside a range of greener and cleaner fuels for transport, heating and power.

Crown Oil’s, managing director, Matthew Greensmith, commented, “The Crown business has a strong service ethic and we pride ourselves on next day delivery as standard with express delivery available in emergencies. We are different to other oil, fuel and lubricant distributors in being more environmentally active and we think our London customers will appreciate this. For example, all our delivery mileage is fully carbon offset and we offer a range of bio-diesel, carbon offset diesel, sustainably source combined heat and power (CHP) fuel and clean burning alternatives to conventional fuels.”

Matthew added, “AdBlue exhaust injectors are fitted to the new low emission London tanker fleet to remove harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx). We are an AdBlue distributor and have an active programme to develop new fuels to help our commercial customers meet their carbon obligation commitments.”

Leading the new venture are brothers Danny and Matthew Woods who have spent their entire careers in the oil distribution business working with their father, first in British Benzol and then at Advanced Fuels. Danny explained, “This is an opportunity to build a new business within the Crown Oil Group. They have been in the business for over 65 years and have some very innovative environmentally friendly products and an exceptional service ethic.” Danny, who is the logistics manager added, “There are plans to extend service to east London in 2013, so we are set to shake-up the fuel market.”

The London opening follows closely on Crown’s acquisition of the Samuel Cooke brand following the collapse of the Burnley fuel business in the summer and the opening of a Crown Oil depot in Doncaster last year. In addition to standard and environmentally friendly fuels, all branches distribute Crown Oil’s advanced lubricants for vehicles, engineering and specialist applications. The company has laboratories for quality control and blending facilities for the formulation of new products.

The family owned Crown Oil Group is one of the largest independent fuel and lubricants suppliers in the UK. The company is also a supplier of gas to commercial users nationwide, offers comprehensive telecoms services in the North West and has a utility division that pioneered the installation of gas, water and electricity in a single streamlined process for developers and house builders. Crown’s Environmental Services Division provides a complete service to industrial and power companies for the removal, reprocessing and sale into market of surplus back-up gas oil and the cleaning, decommissioning or safe mothballing of storage tanks. In the last financial year the group exceeded £170 million turnover.
