Crown Oil has acquired the key assets of Samuel Cooke a leading North West fuel supplier. Crown Group managing director Matt Greensmith explained, “The Samuel Cooke name dates from 1845 and is associated with good service so we will continue to trade on this while assuring all existing customers close attention and service. Crown and Cooke are both long established family-owned businesses that have built sound reputations that are so often the hallmark of independent companies.”National fuel and lubricants distributor
Following the merger into Crown Oil, Samuel Cooke customers will have
access to a wider range of advanced low carbon fuels and speciality
lubricants. In line with Crown Oil’s environmental commitment all Sam
Cooke’s delivery mileage by road tankers will now be fully carbon
Crown Oil general manager, Mark Andrews, noted, “Crown Oil has grown
significantly in recent years and this is a perfect opportunity for us
to reinforce our position as one of the UK’s largest independent fuel
and lubricants suppliers.”
A handful of former employees from Samuel Cooke have already joined
Crown Oil and the company is hopeful that there will be more employment
opportunities as the former Samuel Cooke business is consolidated into
the Crown Group. Additional staff will be based at Crown Oil’s
administrative headquarters and depot, The Oil Centre adjoining the Bury
exit on the M66.
Among the new services available to Samuel Cooke customers, Crown Oil
offer technical services to blend products to meet specific client
needs. A mixed fleet of tankers optimises load delivery and systems to
automate delivery to ensure continuity of supply for larger users. In
addition to fuels and lubricants, the Crown Group can also provide
business customers with electricity, gas and telecommunication services
and a raft of services for utility connection and upgrade.
