Home » About Us – Old

Quality products and exceptional service, delivered every time.

We’re a leading UK supplier of fuel, lubricants and solid fuel for homes, businesses and farms.

As a family-run business we pride ourselves on our high standards, professional approach, personal touch and exceptional customer service.

We’ve been serving North East businesses and households for more than 25 years and we’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned as a professional, dependable and friendly supplier.

We really understand our customers, which is why we’ll always go the extra mile to make sure your delivery arrives when you need it – whatever the weather.

We’re also a multiple award-winning Jet distributor – the only one in the North East. That means a guaranteed supply of high quality fuel, high safety standards and first class customer service at all times.

We serve a wide range of customers, including domestic, agricultural, commercial and marine-based businesses.

We deliver the same high levels of quality and customer care across our logistics and fleet maintenance services, too.

Putting health and safety first

Our working practices consistently meet or exceed the very highest standards in health and safety.

Our stringent focus on quality assurance has led us to win numerous industry awards, including the prestigious UK & Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) Depot of the Year award six times, including in 2016.

Par Petroleum is the only company in the UK to receive this award on six separate occasions, which is a testament to the standards we set and keep.

We also carry a zero incidents record, which means we’ve operated for 1,000 days or more without incident or injury.

All of our drivers are ADR and CPC trained and all have PDP passports – the gold standard when it comes to safety and security in fuel handling.

They all undergo rigorous training before working with us as well as regular re-assessment.

On top of this, we’ve invested heavily in our award-winning, modern and secure site which features top of the range loading systems including advanced volume gauges for accuracy and safety.

Taking care of our environment

We believe it’s extremely important to do all we can to look after our environment.

That is why we work hard to minimise our environmental impact in everything we do.

Our emphasis is on fuel efficiency at all times, using intelligent route planning technology and driver experience to minimise our mileage and reduce our carbon footprint as far as possible – using our fleet to its maximum efficiency, eliminating dead miles and energy wastage.

The majority of our vehicles are also fitted with the latest, most advanced engines and meet Euro 6 emissions standards.

We carry out rainwater harvesting and operate a solar farm at our Durham depot and we’ve fitted special drainage under the site to safely remove any run-off liquids and protect the surrounding environment.

Our green credentials have helped us to secure Platinum award status from the UK & Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) and win the prestigious Depot of the Year award six times.
