This company provides fuel cards and related services to fleet operators, typically small ones with five to ten vehicles. The cards are valid at 25,000 fuel stations across Europe, and are used to buy 3bn litres of diesel a year. In 2013, Crewe-based UK Fuels merged with its other fuel card companies to form Radius, and under founder and chief executive Bill Holmes, 51, the combined group generated sales of £1.5bn in 2015.
