Certas Energy is the largest independent fuel and lubricants distributor in the UK, supplying domestic, commercial, agricultural, and industrial customers. With a network of over 150 depots, nearly 1,000 tankers, more than 800 retail forecourts, and 2,500 employees, Certas delivers billions of litres of fuel all over the UK each year. Until October 2013, Certas Energy traded as GB Oils. Certas’ parent company is DCC, a publicly-quoted sales, marketing, and distribution group. DCC is listed on the Irish and London Stock exchanges and employs over 9,500 people across 13 countries.
Certas required a supplier who would be able to consistently supply high-quality technical workwear to multiple locations across the UK (including The Channel Islands, Isle of Man and the Outer Hebrides) within a short timeframe. Certas needed the absolute guarantee that all uniform and PPE supplied would be through the correct channels and be the approved specification garments, criteria that no previous supplier had been able to afford.
