Our history

Since it was founded in 1994, our firm has gone from strength to strength, reaching many milestones along the way.

In the 1990s, we became the authorised distributor for many leading manufacturers, including ExxonMobil, Fuchs, Klüber and Shell, and in 2000, we launched the UK’s first ever online platform for buying lubricants, Oil-Store.co.uk.

In the 2000s, we not only became Yorkshire’s official distributor for Q8 Oils and Morris Lubricants, but we also established our 5,000 square foot headquarters in Carcroft, Doncaster.

From our offices and warehouse space here, we have the capacity to store 500,000 litres of ready-to-ship packed lubricants, serving customers not just in Yorkshire, but nationally and across the globe.

A procurement specialist

We supply lubricants for an extensive range of applications, including industrial, metalworking and automotive, among others, to a lengthy list of industries, from aerospace and agriculture to rail and refrigeration.

We’re able to deliver thousands of different product lines from an impressive list of brands, only working with world-leading manufacturers producing the most dependable and premium-quality lubricants, like Shell, Fuchs, Valvoline, Castrol and Petro-Canada, along with many others.

Along with providing customer service that is second-to-none, rapid and dependable distribution, and in-house technical expertise, we also offer a wide range of specialist support to those we serve. We not only source and deliver products that meet the exacting requirements of equipment manufacturers and bespoke customer applications, but we also offer additional services that help our customers adhere to guidelines and legislation set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and we supply documentation to aid the movement of product across the globe.


Our customer-focused operation has been designed to offer a seamless service from start to finish, ensuring our clients keep their businesses running smoothly with the products they need to succeed. From the initial enquiry stage to scheduled delivery, we are committed to keeping the purchasing process as streamlined and simple for our customers as possible.
