County Pumps Ltd expands into new premises with backing from Barclays

An Oxfordshire-based leading specialist in fuel dispensing systems, including installations, repairs, servicing, emergency breakdown and fuel monitoring systems is expanding into new purpose built premises after four decades of sustained growth, supported by a six-figure funding package from Barclays.

Founded in 1977 by two Petroleum Engineers, County Pumps Ltd  now boasts a UK-wide client base, installing daily a wide range of products from basic hand fuel dispensing pumps to sophisticated commercial fuel dispensing systems with fuel management.  The firm currently operates from Shutford, Oxfordshire, employing a team of eleven and remains an independent privately owned company.

The move to its new premises at Apollo Park, Wroxton, Banbury, will provide the business with additional capacity for future growth.

Alison Newport, Sales Director at County Pumps Ltd, said: “The new premises will provide us with the space to expand capacity, leverage efficiencies and allow us to continue to remain our customers’ supplier of choice.  We’re delighted that Barclays has provided the funding for the move which will secure the future of the business and take us into our next phase of growth.”

The new premises was completed towards the end of 2017 and become fully operational in February 2018.

Richard Huddleston, Barclays Business Manager, Oxfordshire, said: “It’s great to see a local business expanding and contributing to the local economy.  The firm is very experienced in this niche market and is continuing to grow.  We are fully committed to supporting the business as it looks to build on its success and expand its order book now and in the future.”
