Founded just four years ago at a derelict poultry farm at Cragg Vale, this West Yorkshire firm generated sales of £21m last year and is on course to deliver 50m litres of oil in 2015. It supplies more than 8,000 domestic and commercial customers in Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire, including the NHS and the Ministry of Defence. The company says it focuses on customer service and transparency, and was the first UK heating oil supplier to enable online ordering and advertise its prices online. Chief executive Chris Bingham, 44, heads the family-owned business he set up with his in-laws Ralph, 67, and June Thornber, 69, and their daughter Heidi, 42.
