MBO One Year Anniversary - We’re celebrating!

It’s a year ago since Janet and Trevor Kettlewell completed the management buyout (MBO) at Kettlewell Fuels.

Since then, it’s been a busy year. We’ve strengthened the company’s management team by appointing finance expert John Skinner to the board of directors, and we’ve boosted our customer team with more friendly faces. 

Creating a better business

A move to larger, more modern premises, still within the Melmerby area, has been welcome, and we’ve also invested in our versatile fleet, which now includes two new four-wheel tankers and a Tank in a Van. This latest addition enables us to make small emergency deliveries and respond quickly to customers in need.

Vote for your village

Supporting the community in which we operate is always important to us here at Kettlewell Fuels. This year, we’ve been working with local presenter, Nick Hancock and the Your Harrogate team to create a buzz in our local villages.

The current promotion with Your Harrogate is Village of the Month. Helping our villages to enjoy the summer, we're donating some fantastic locally produced products from family-run companies to local villages over the next six months. Be sure to visit the website and vote if your village is being featured!

Sponsoring Nidderdale Junior Cricket League again

As avid cricket supporters, the development of grassroots cricket provides the perfect sponsorship match for us. Once again, we will be sponsoring the Nidderdale Junior Cricket League with the season getting underway at the end of April – fingers crossed for some great weather and some cracking cricket. 

Commenting on the past year, Janet Kettlewell said:

“What a year! A lot has happened, and of course the pandemic has added an extra dimension – we hope you are continuing to keep safe and well.

“As for this year, we’re already underway with a busy schedule of customer support and promotional activities, so please do keep in touch. If you haven’t already, please sign-up for our e-newsletter or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for real-time updates.
