NWF was founded in 1871 as a farming cooperative, serving farms with feed and grain. We started to deliver fuel to our customers in 1950, when ploughs started to be pulled by tractors and oil heating started to replace coal.
Today we are a dedicated fuels and lubricant business with a modern fleet of over 155 vehicles, making us the third-largest in the UK. We operate from our local depot network, strategically located across England and Wales. We supply a comprehensive range of fuel, lubricants and AdBlue to domestic, agricultural, commercial and retail customers across the UK.
From small beginnings we now have a turnover in excess of £350 million, are major authorised distributors for Texaco and Jet, and are preferred distributors of fuel for Essar, Total and Esso. In addition, we’re one of the UK’s largest authorised agents for the Key Fuels Card – a nationwide bunkering card that enables our customers to draw fuel at over 3000 locations nationwide.
Many things have changed since we started, but something that hasn’t changed is our commitment to customer service and a local depot network. We believe that our unique combination of local depots, backed by the strength of a larger business, enables us to offer the best standard of service to all our customers.
