Darch Oil History
Darch Oil has its beginnings in the early 1960s when founder Ron Darch started up his own business supplying coal and logs to domestic customers in and around Yeovil.
Over the years, ‘Ron Darch & Sons’ became a known and trusted name in home fuels, eventually going on to acquire three other local coal firms, R L Froom in Crewkerne, Larcombe Coal in Chard and Tovey coal in Glastonbury.
As the business grew, so too did demand for us to expand our range of services. So, ‘Darch Oil’ was born in 1990 to supply liquid fuels and lubricants to customers across the county, and we have grown quickly to become one of the area’s biggest suppliers while maintaining the same personal and professional service Ron Darch had in mind from the very start.
To help support our growth, in 2019 Darch Oil was acquired by NWF Fuels, part of the NWF Group. NWF Fuels is a national supplier of fuels that recognises the importance of building strong relationships within the local community. This acquisition has brought a series of benefits, from a robust national supply chain and streamlined processes to a modernised fleet of tankers that is more reliable and sustainable, allowing us to improve our service to customers even more.
As a local business are proud to be able to make an ongoing commitment to the local infrastructure.
