Exelby Services

Exelby Services - reducing environmental impact and supporting young people. 

Exelby Services is a family-owned, independent distributor of bunkering and retails fuels across the North of England. A partnership with YDMT is helping to reduce the environmental impact of the business, while creating opportunities to support hundreds of young people. 

So far, the partnership has supported the planting of 850 new trees and created opportunities for 170 young people to connect with nature and learn new skills.

Exelby Services Ltd was established in 1976, but the origins of the business go back to the late 1940's, when Ron Exelby devised 'Diesel Bunkering' at a small repair and fuel filling station in the village of Londonderry on the A1 in North Yorkshire.

The company now handles more than 140 million litres of diesel each year through the five sites and stores fuel for most of the major transport, distribution and fuel card companies in the UK. This makes it one of the largest independent bunkering suppliers in the country.

Rob Exelby said:

"We’re immensely proud to be partnering with YDMT as we push to reduce our environmental impact as a business while creating opportunities to support young people in the British countryside.
“As well as reducing our customer’s carbon footprints, we’re now on a mission to make our business operations carbon neutral. We have recently completed a full redevelopment of our A19 Northbound site which includes a Shell service station and truck stop.
“We’ve taken inspiration from our partnership with YDMT to plant more than a hundred trees and hundreds more shrubs and bushes to create a diverse habitat for the local wildlife. We’re looking to supplement this with an on-site solar farm to make it our first carbon negative service area.”
