Since our formation in 1972 Linton has maintained one simple philosophy, to deliver quality products on time. Having established a reputation within our industry for exceptional service standards, we have progressively developed our offering across the commercial, off highway, agricultural and heating sectors.
Our customers enjoy an unparalleled level of personal service with dedicated account managers, a variety of pricing structures tailored to suit individual requirements (including the option to fix the price of fuel for up to 12 months) and an extensive choice of premium products designed for quality assurance and cost effectiveness.
Having joined forces with Watson Fuels, also owned by World Fuel Services, we now deliver a wider range of products directly to more customers and to more parts of the country than ever before. We are able to utilise the cost benefits of our collective buying power to offer our customers a better choice.
The Company’s origins go back over 40 years to 1972 when two innovative tanker drivers, David Flynn and Roy Panton founded Linton Fuel Oils with a vision of creating a fuel distributor passionate about delivering a quality service.
Throughout the years, Linton has become renowned amongst our peers and customers alike in the South East region as being the ‘go to’ fuel supplier for reliability in service and for peace of mind where product quality is essential.
The strength of the company has always and continues to be its people that share the initial company ethos recognised by its founders. Our reputation was further enhanced in 2006 when the company was awarded the Royal Warrant for the supply of petroleum products to Her Majesty the Queen.
Huge investment into transport, IT systems, marketing initiatives and our product portfolio around this time expanded our influence and opened up new geographical areas.
By 2013, the success of Linton had attracted the interest of global fuel solutions provider World Fuel Services, who acquired the company as its first UK land distributor. The acquisition allows Linton to progress still further, and provides the opportunity to enhance our business proposition for the benefit of our customers.
WFS have since made further acquisitions within the UK, giving Linton Fuel Oils greater coverage across the country.
The business still retains a strong family element with the two founders' sons Stephen Panton managing transport and Neil Flynn managing office and sales operations.
We firmly believe that our greater buying power and efficient operational structure in combination with our company ideals of delivering a quality service, gives our customers the perfect solution in fuel and lubricant distribution.

Linton Fuel Oils aims to keep customers informed on environmental matters. This occurs most often in the installation and maintenance of storage tanks and related equipment. A document produced by the Environment Agency, Oftec and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers called Get to Know Your Oil Tank gives details of how to look after your existing oil tank and what is the best practice when installing a new one. The document is available to read at www.environment-agency.gov.uk. Information on Installations and Registered Installers can be found on the OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association for the Petroleum Industry) website www.oftec.co.uk
The Control of Pollution (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) Regulations 1991 - applies to tanks and equipment on farms and one of the main requirements is the bunding or secondary containment of tank contents.
Building Regulations (Part J) apply to domestic installations. The regulations cover tank location and sets out the circumstances under which tanks must be bunded. The easiest way to ensure your new tank complies is to have it installed by an OFTEC registered installer.
We also recommend the Oilsave website which provides information on how best to conserve energy in homes and workplaces heated by oil.
Health and safety regulations are extensive and can be complex, but the HSE website www.hse.gov.uk provides details and advice on all aspects.
Working at Height regulations were introduced in 2005, which adds to previous legislation and is directly applicable to us and many of our customers. The regulations cover use of ladders, provision of working platforms, guard rails and other fall arrest systems. It also questions the need to work from height at all in many cases.
Linton Fuel Oils is currently undertaking a substantial investment in new vehicles, equipment and facilities at our depots, aimed at eliminating much of the need to work at height. All of our depots are equipped with the latest bottom loading facilities so that all work at the depot can be carried out at ground level. We invest heavily in our depots, vehicles and offices to ensure that our standards are kept high.
But improving our own facilities is only half the answer. We need to ensure that our customers' tanks are also safe. Ideally we would like all new tanks to be installed at ground level, but in the meantime existing tanks can often be easily modified to make the delivery safer.
