Fuel supplier Transglobal Fuels emerged as the Fastest Growing Large Business and Overall Fastest Growing Business at the 2012 Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards, organised and sponsored by top 100 UK law firm Ward Hadaway in association with the Yorkshire Post.

The newspaper said the Batley-based company, which was founded in 2007, and had grown at an impressively rapid rate to become one of the leading suppliers of petrol and diesel to both independent fuel retailers and road hauliers right across the UK.

It said the Transglobal team’s extensive experience and market knowledge in oil distribution and petrol retailing, allied with a focus on creating strong trading relationships with customers and suppliers had proved a potent combination – as well as an award-winning one.

The company beat off competition from outdoor and activity equipment retailer Go Outdoors Limited and discount retailer Poundworld Retail Limited, who were second and third respectively, to win the Fastest Growing Large Business award.
