Moorland Fuels, a prominent Devon-based player in the fuel distribution industry, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Founded in 2003, with only two members of staff and one baby fuel tanker, the 100% employee-owned business now boasts a diverse fleet of vehicles ranging from an 8-wheeler tanker to a custom 4X4 ranger. Over the past two decades, Moorlands have consistently delivered a high-quality service, distributing fuels such as domestic heating oil, commercial diesel, and agricultural gas oil. Including promoting environmental responsibility through carbon offsetting schemes and renewable diesel alternatives like HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil).
Moorland Fuels’ transition to an entirely employee-owned company, which took place in 2022, has been a game-changer. This unique ownership model empowers every team member, from drivers to office staff, to have a personal stake in the company’s success. Resulting in unwavering dedication, loyalty, and a shared commitment to excellence.
“We are immensely proud to reach this significant milestone in our company’s history,” said Matthew Crockett, managing director at Moorland Fuels. “Our journey has been one of continuous growth and innovation, and becoming an employee-owned company has been a pivotal moment. It has fostered a sense of ownership and responsibility in our employees that continues to drive our success.”
As Moorland Fuels marks this significant milestone, they extend their gratitude to their loyal customers, dedicated employees, and supportive partners who have been instrumental in their success and look forward to continuing to serve the Devon and Cornwall communities with fuel solutions for their homes, farms and businesses.
