A Cooke Fuels timeline

Here’s how Cooke Fuels has evolved from humble beginnings in North East Lancashire to being one of the UK’s major fuel suppliers.

  • In 1845, Richard and James Thomas established a business to supply lubricants to the Lancashire weaving industry. 
  • 1868 saw the entrance of Samuel Cooke to the company, whose excellent business acumen took the company to new heights as a fuel and home heating oil provider. As a result of this, the company is renamed Samuel Cooke and Co.
  • In 1992, the first Cooke Fuels petrol station is purchased, based in Accrington, Lancashire – a huge step for the business!
  • In 2005, Cooke Fuels celebrates its 160th anniversary.
  • For the 2009/10 football season, Cooke becomes the main sponsor of Burnley FC. As an independent business with close ties to our locality, this is an achievement we’re really proud of. Especially with the global exposure we received as Burnley went head to head against premier league teams with our logo on their shirt.
  • In order to provide a bigger and better service to customers nationwide, Cooke Fuels entered into a partnership with the Crown Oil Group in 2012.
  • To this day, we’re still providing the friendly, reliable service that made us a success over 170 years ago.
