Andrew Wells is the founder and owner of Yorkshire Oils. Yorkshire Oils was established following years of experience in the oil industry and the realisation that customer service was heavily lacking among oil suppliers.
Andrew decided to become one of very few independent oil suppliers. This meant he could focus on offering a personal service and get to know our clients. Unfortunately many oil suppliers concentrate on the numbers. They have targets set by multinational companies and must sell huge quantities of oil. Sadly this leaves customers as just a number, instead of a valued client.
Andrew never felt this should be the case, hence Yorkshire Oils was built on getting to know customers. Andrew chose to serve specifically Yorkshire as he knows the county, being born & bred here. This also gives us a smaller area than the huge UK companies meaning we always have time for each & every customer.
Background: Andrew was in management for a multinational oil company for over 22 years. During this time he was required to work within regional depots & head office. As with many large oil companies he saw his fair share of buy outs over this time.
Yorkshire Roots: Andrew grew up around Ripon and attended school here as a child. He took part in many local activities and enjoyed his early years living the Yorkshire life. He was then offered the opportunity to attend Pocklington School as a teenager. Andrew has never been far from the county, living & working in the area ever since.
Where might we meet?: As you have probably gathered, Andrew loves meeting up with people and consequently has many loves outside of work. Andrew is a huge fan of sport, you might catch him at local Yorkshire Rugby matches, playing a spot of tennis or even on the golf course. He has also taken on a family tradition as Director of Ripon Racecourse, you will often see him here on race days. Keeping to his Yorkshire roots Andrew loves a visit to a Yorkshire pub for a tasty meal & refreshing drinks.
