WP Group has announced the acquisition of local fuel distributor Upton Oil Company.
Based in Poole with depots across the south including Ringwood and Dorchester, Upton Oil Company specialises in supplying a local, friendly service to heating oil users, the farming community and commercial customers.
David Fairchild, managing director of WP Group, commented: “This acquisition is beneficial for both parties as it brings together a wealth of experience and knowledge from both sides. I have always respected Upton Oil Company’s customer loyalty and hope to further improve the service they receive by utilising WP Group’s extensive infrastructure across the south coast.”
He added, “The business will continue to trade under the long established Upton Oil Company brand and will service the existing customer base, who will not notice any disruption to normal service.”
