Kinch Fuel Oils has signed a one-year extension to its supplier contract with Phillips 66, marking the 30th year of their collaboration.

Kinch Fuels is now one of the longest-standing JET-branded authorised distributors of Phillips 66. From its facility in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, Kinch Fuels distributes to a wide customer base throughout the Wiltshire region, with plans to extend its reach into Gloucestershire.

The independent, family-run business has been delivering oil throughout Wiltshire and the surrounding area for more than 40 years. Its owners, Roy and Pauline Kinch, originally started the business from a coal yard, selling oil locally to domestic and agricultural customers.

Since then, the company has grown considerably and has established a reputation for its top quality heating oil, lubricants and road and agricultural fuels. The company prides itself on offering competitive prices, a personal service and efficient and safe deliveries

Roy Kinch, founder and owner of Kinch Fuels, commented: “Over the years, everyone we’ve worked with at Phillips 66 has been honest and straightforward. They have a genuine interest in our business and consistently go above and beyond what most distributors would expect from their fuel suppliers. I’m delighted to celebrate this 30-year milestone.”

Wayne Oakes, territory manager for Phillips 66 in the Midlands, added: “At Phillips 66, we value our customer relationships and this is certainly the case with Kinch Fuels. To maintain such a longstanding supplier arrangement requires commitment to continually improving our offering, delivering on our promises and exceeding rather than meeting our customers’ expectations. We look forward to working together throughout 2014 and beyond.”

Phillips 66 has entered into an agreement to supply Kinch Fuels out of Murco’s distribution terminal in Westerleigh, near Bristol.
