History

Craggs Energy was established in September 2011 and was set up by Ralph Thornber, his wife June Thornber and their daughter and son-in law Heidi and Chris Bingham.
Ralph formerly owned the Townson Thornber Distributorship and sold out in the 1980’s – were his name was established for delivering high levels of customer service and ensuring all his customers received their deliveries on time. Many of the original staff that worked for Ralph were keen to come back and work for him in his new venture and we still have those very same members of staff with us today!
Along with his son-in-law Chris Bingham, they set up a depot in Cragg Vale to deliver fuel to the local community. Coming from software business background, Chris had a very good understanding of the consumer market and new technology. In August 2012 we opened a second depot in Padiham, East Lancashire (formerly owned by Samuel Cooke & Co Ltd). This enabled Craggs Energy to increase its growth and expansion leading to another two depots to be opened in December 2013 in South Yorkshire and South Cumbria. This wider coverage has firmly rooted our name as a significant player in the UK fuel industry.
As we continue to grow and expand we continually challenge our systems and processes to ensure we remain at the forefront of the UK fuel industry and listen to the needs and challenges faced by our customers.

The Industry

What are the risks to Heating Oil Supply in the UK? Most of us that use heating oil to keep our homes warm in the cold winter months don’t have cause to think of the potential risks to the supply of fuel. Quite understandably, we take it for granted that there is no real shortage of oil in the world and plenty of trucks on the road to get us heating oil pretty much as and when we need it. Even when the temperatures drop, prices might spike for a few weeks, but there is never really a situation where this is not enough oil to go around.
