Kevin Knight and Jamie Starr will be business development managers, Rebekah Venton an account manager, Andy Tout a depot supervisor, whilst Chris Sampson will be a yardman and Kevin McCoy and Chris Allen will be employed as drivers.

We welcome the Tincknell Lubricants team to the GB Oils family and look forward to building close working relationships in the months ahead.”
