A STUDLEY business is on the move as it operations continue to expand.
Clarke Oil has moved from from its headquarts on The Slough to Redditch in a deal brokered by property agents John Truslove, who acted for landlord South Street Capital.
The business has taken 4,810 sq ft at 28 Dunlop Road, Hunt End, on a five-year lease.
Clarke Oil supplies high quality oil and greases to customers in the agricultural, automotive, commercial, plant & off-highway and industrial sectors.
Director Emily Clarke said: “We were looking for a bigger unit – our previous premises were 3,200 sq ft – and a site more accessible to our customers.
“We wanted somewhere close to Studley and near to local motorway networks. Dunlop Road fits the bill. Making this investment will enable us to push forward with our long term growth plans.”
Ben Truslove, a director of John Truslove, said: “It is great to see an ambitious local firm expanding rather than sitting on their laurels.”
Clarke Oil acts for two major players in the market – Fuchs Lubricants is the largest lubricants manufacturer in the world and Exol Lubricants is the largest UK-based manufacturer.
The was recently awarded Exol’s Distributor of the Year for 2016.
“We were thrilled to receive the award, Clarke Oil was incorporated in 2007 supplying local end user business with relatively small volumes, today we distribute in excess of one million litres a year across the UK and are still growing.” said Mrs Clarke.
