Bradford fuel storage solutions provider celebrates 20 year milestone
A Bradford fuel storage solutions provider is celebrating its 20th anniversary having grown into a £4.5m turnover operation.
Fuel Storage Solutions (FSS), is an OFTEC registered provider of complete commercial and industrial fuel storage solutions, from supply to maintenance of tanks for oil, diesel and petrol, plus associated systems including pads, bunds, pipework and environmental controls for the safe storage of all fuel types.
Founded by husband and wife team Jonathan and Katharine Barnett, the company is headquartered in a former Methodist chapel in Thornton village and now employs 38 people. Marking the occasion of the 20th anniversary, the Directors hosted an event for the team and their families.
The business has ambitious plans for future growth through the development of innovative products and methods to add value to clients including scaling up pipework installations for the transfer of fuel and other products using their patented APIApipe™ cold compression system.
FSS is currently developing their green initiative through the positive reduction of the firm’s carbon footprint. They are consistent donors of charitable funds and obtained the Bronze Armed Forces Covenant in 2020 and the Silver award in 2021 in recognition of the number of veterans that that they employ.
Katharine Barnett said: “I cannot believe where the time has gone. Our journey has been bumpy and fun, scary and exciting but at the centre of it all and supporting us have been all our colleagues. Every single person who has been part of the FSS family has contributed something that has taken us to the next level, taught us how to do (or not do) things, improved the company that we are, contributed to our growth and left an indelible mark.
“The people in the business are what make Fuel Storage Solutions the force that it is. They shape us, they drive us, and their loyalty and dedication push us to places we never thought we would go.
“On our 20th anniversary we thank you all, past and present, for accompanying us on this journey. We thank you for building a company that offers us all a stable environment and, in doing so, creating a secure place that empowers all, is nurturing, where people are supported to grow and advance, and which provides everyone with a glowing future.”
