Redditch company chosen to help smooth path for others

A SLICK family-run business celebrating its 10th birthday this month has been selected as a model for a new pilot scheme.

Clarke Oil, based at the Slough in Studley was established in 2007 with the vision to supply quality oils and greases to local businesses and users.

Husband and wife team, Emily and Paul Clarke, who both live in Studley, have been with the business from the very start and for the first six years, managed the whole company between them.

Emily, aged 38, said: “Both myself and Paul are very driven and have always been determined to succeed.

“Starting a business is always daunting in the beginning, especially with a very young family, but anything is possible if you put your mind to it and have a clear direction in which you want to go.”

Ten years on

Now 10 years on, the company supplies to a wide range of different size companies all over the UK and employs a team of seven staff.

They have also been selected by the Coventry & Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Hub to pilot for a ‘Scale Up Academy’, which is designed to deliver support, tailored to individual business requirements, helping them to grow and thrive.

Emily added: “Celebrating our 10 year anniversary this month, we have been looking back at the journey Clarke Oil has taken and feel extremely proud of what we have achieved.

“We’ve have a fantastic team of employees in place that feel very much part of the Clarke Oil family. We are really proud of our family.”

“We are always extremely grateful to all of our customers and also feel very excited for the what the future now holds.”
