You may have recently seen the news that we have strengthened our brand, with the acquisition of Birlem Oil.

The Tottenham-based company has a rich tradition of excellent and personable customer service, as do we. Therefore it’s a move we are thrilled to have completed.

The deal will mean an expansion to Speedy Fuels in the South East and further establishes our impressive delivery network.

Next-day or same-day delivery has always been an option for Speedy customers, and this expansion cements our incredible levels of customer service.

Matthew Greensmith, managing director, said: “We are delighted with the acquisition of Birlem, which gives greater coverage in the South East to our Speedy brand. We have worked with the Buckley family for a number of years and they share the same values as us, so the business was a natural fit for the group.

“The business has been left in strong health and we look forward to building on that success in the future.”

Kirk Buckley said: “Speedy has been a valued partner of Birlem for a number of years so it seemed only right that the business should continue its journey under its care. We are pleased to have been able to reach a deal with Crown Oil Group and the Greensmith family and look forward to watching Birlem go from strength to strength under their ownership.”
