30 years’ experience in the fuel card business
3 offices in Crewe, Ipswich and York
3,000+ fuelling stations in the UK
UK Fuels is based in Crewe. Despite being a global multi-industry business, it is still very proud to be a British company.
Founded in 1990
UK Fuels was established in 1990 by Bill Holmes. He wanted to create a more efficient way for fleet operators to buy their fuel and process their expenses, and to bring fleet operators in the north of England the price benefits of bulk diesel purchasing.
UK Fuels is now networked with all the UK’s major fuel stations including supermarkets and bulk diesel sellers. The company provides its own fuel card which brings together the whole national network, along with branded cards from the major global oil companies.
Technology keeps UK Fuels ahead of competitors
UK Fuels places great value on staying ahead of competitors when it comes to technology. The emphasis is on keeping its fleet management software easy to use, no matter how much functionality it offers or how detailed the reports it provides.
The company partners with the University of Manchester to keep its information technology centre staffed with the best of new British talent. For more information on the graduate programme and recruitment across the company, visit the careers website.
