Major Somerset business 'Western Fuel' gets behind Visit Somerset
Craig has always been a hands-on MD and has done every job in the company, from answering customer calls, to routing the tankers and driving the tankers himself.
In 1996 the company moved to larger premises in Bridgwater and was joined by shareholder and financial director Nick Smith. The company name was shortened to Western fuel Limited and has gone from strength to strength.
The company started with 1 tanker and has steadily grown over the years to a fleet of 26 with over 50 staff in 2023. With our flagship depot in Bridgwater full with our ever growing number of tankers, we opened our Taunton depot in 2006.
Western Fuel is now one of the South West’s leading, independent fuel supply business. We have acquired an excellent reputation as competitive and reliable fuel distributors of Heating Oil, Commercial and Agricultural fuel for the region.
‘We are proud to partner with Visit Somerset and help share knowledge on the best way to maintain and heat your home efficiently this winter. As a local, family run Somerset business, we stive to offer our customers the best possible value and service’  – Nick Smith

During these difficult times for so many businesses and housleholds, its really important to ensure we are all working together, having the 'Western Fuel' team with Visit Somerset is a real boost in pursuit of brand Somerset and the support of our regional economy ."
