Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Oil 4 Wales Expands Chain of Petrol Stations


Independent oil distribution company Oil 4 Wales has announced it has purchased two garages in south Wales.

Oil 4 Wales now owns both the Globe Garage in Porthcawl and Masteg 24/7.

Earlier this year, Oil 4 Wales bought Maesteg 24/7 Express Store Limited, which had long term leases with both garages, but the family-run business has now gone on to purchase the garages.

The garage signings are part of Oil 4 Wales’ expansion plans which has recently seen the company open a new 300,000 litre depot in Three Cocks, Brecon.

Since launching in 2010, Oil 4 Wales has gone from strength to strength. It now supplies over 39,000 customers in Wales with a range of fuel services to homes, businesses, commercial premises, agricultural and retail premises.

In addition to six depots in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Milford Haven, Felinfach, Carmarthen, Cardiff and Brecon, the oil distributor also has supply contracts with over 30 petrol stations across the country.

Colin Owens, managing director or Oil4 Wales, said:

“We have enjoyed a very successful year with new garage signings and the opening of our Brecon depot and we are thrilled to be in such a positive position.

“Our slogan is ‘working with the community, for the community’ and our main aim is to be fair and honest with pricing.

“The addition of Porthcawl and Maesteg garages will enable us to control fuel prices so that the Maesteg and Porthcawl communities receive a good deal.

“Our focus has always been to create a truly welsh brand that has depots throughout the country to efficiently service the local communities of Wales and we are now well on our way to achieving this aim.”

Oil 4 Wales was set up with the aim of creating a truly independent oil brand that focused on providing a good deal to the communities of Wales. Oil 4 Wales was recently one of 18 Welsh companies included in the London Stock Exchange’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

It is also the only Welsh oil distributor to have its fuel accredited by the FPS (Federation of Petroleum Suppliers) giving customers’ peace of mind that what it is supplying is the best in the market, having been tested for its cleanliness.
