Local manufacturer delivers largest ever order

Heysham based, Fuel Proof Ltd., is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of customised, high quality fuel storage equipment for diesel and aviation fuel. They have 65 employees and exports account for circa 15% of their sales. Their global client base spans every continent, including many of the world’s largest companies.

This week, they will start delivery of their biggest ever combined order. The order comprised three 85,000 litre fuel tanks (45-foot long and 12-foot wide); linking pipework and a containerised central pumping system. The customer is Birmingham Airport and the facility, once it has been installed, will significantly upgrade the Airport’s existing fuel storage operation, since the new system is designed to deliver better security, service life, ease of use, reliability and value for money.

“The aviation sector is fast becoming a significant part of our business since we produced our first aviation fuel tank over 10 years ago” commented Andrew Hargreaves, MD, Fuel Proof Ltd.  “However, this latest order has taken us into another category of research, development and in-house manufacture. It is by far, the largest single system we have ever been involved with.

“We were successful with our competitive bid, due to our ongoing investment in our people, our state-of-the-art engineering facilities and our adoption of the latest 3D design technology. As a result, we guarantee every fuel storage system we produce.

“Whilst challenging at times, everyone at Fuel Proof is very proud of this new state of the art fuel storage system for Birmingham Airport, since we take great pride in delivering our products to the highest standards. We are really looking forward to seeing it in operation in the near future.”
