The Nolan family have supplied domestic heating oil to local homes and businesses for over 50 years. To this day Nolan Oils remains a family firm owing its success to a small team of staff dedicated to customer satisfaction.
Mark Nolan decided to form Nolan Fuel Oils in 1988 following the acquisition of Ultramar Golden Eagle by Kuwait Petroleum. Mark had previously been a director of Markim Fuels Ltd, which his father and mother, Margaret and Bert Henry Nolan, started in the early 1970s in Launton and they were the first appointed distributors for Ultramar in the UK.
The company commenced trading in December 1988. At that stage all of the work was undertaken by Mark with one four wheel tanker and an office desk in the farmhouse front room at Launton. By April 1989 the company had taken on a driver and had acquired a six wheel tanker in order to meet demand for deliveries.
A period of rapid growth followed based on the provision of reliable service at competitive prices. A temporary storage facility was utilised at a yard near Bicester. This consisted of three 12,000 gallon tanks for Kerosene, Gas Oil and Derv.
In 1995 a suitable permanent site was acquired at the transport yard in Middleton Stoney, three miles away from Bicester. Building was completed in 1996 and the depot was opened on 23 May 1996 for home heating fuel, diesels, lubricants and oil storage tanks.
As well as domestic heating oil, Nolan Oils are able to supply a wide range of fuels and lubricants for domestic, agricultural, haulage and industrial applications.
Our fleet of specialised vehicles provide a fast reliable service from our local depot to within a 30 mile radius of Bicester, however we can arrange for oil deliveries Nationwide.
