NWF Fuels acquires Consols Oils

In a move to support continued growth in the south west of England, NWF Fuels has acquired Redruth-based Consols Oils, a 25 million litre fuel Cornish business.

This is the second acquisition made by NWF Fuels this year; Midland Fuel Oil Supplies joined the NWF fold in February.

Occupying the number four slot in the Fuel Oil News top 20 mainland UK fuel oil distributors, NWF has been expanding its geographical coverage, particularly in regions   where there is a good fit with its existing depot network.

However, adding a leading supplier based in West Cornwall does take NWF Fuels into newer territory.

Formerly owned by Kevin Bennetts, the Consols Oils business has a long and proud history which goes back many decades. Starting with a horse-drawn tanker, the company acquired its first proper tanker in 1935.
