We’re Oil You Need
We’re a family owned and family-run business, which enables assurance, transparency and integrity to be instilled throughout the whole Crown Group. Above oil, our priority is to take care of each other, our customers and our communities.
Great Service. Great People.
You might have seen it already on our website, but we want to shout it from the rooftops! We invest in each and everyone of our employees, because it really is our people that set us apart from the rest. In fact, if you ask anybody at Crown why they work here, they all give the same answer – the people.
We’re transitioning to becoming the UK’s leading alternative fuels supplier
Change is coming and we’re leading the way. We have recently won UKIFDA’s Green Award for 2021 which showcases our commitment to our planet! From supplying alternative fuels to voluntarily offsetting our delivery mileage since 2007, we’re passionate about fuelling a greener future.
As part of our efforts to tackle climate change and promote a safe and sustainable workplace, we pledge to run all our buildings on renewable energy by the end of 2022, including our offices and depots. There’s no better time to come and join a family run company that’s dedicated to reducing our environmental impact.
Discover what green steps we’re taking as part of our transition to becoming a sustainable fuel supplier.

How Have We Become So Successfuel?
Established in 1928, Harry Greensmith began selling lamp oil door to door in Heywood, where he gained the affectionate nickname “Harry Lamp Oil” thanks to his kind manner and reliable service.
After years spent growing his business and supporting his local community during WW2, Harry expanded his product range to include the bulk sale and distribution of fuels and lubricants.
Today, we continue to deliver the reliable, friendly service first made famous almost a century later.
