Our parent company J.R. Rix & Sons Ltd has been ranked 38th in the 2015 Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250.JR Rix top track 250 award 2015

Located in Hull, J.R Rix & Sons started out as ship owners in 1873 and today has interests in fuel distribution, shipping, motor cars, caravan manufacturing and property and has appeared in the prestigious business listing for the 10th time in 11 years.

Rory Clarke, managing director of Rix Petroleum and group board member, said he was delighted by the achievement.

He said: “To continually feature in the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 is a real source of pride for the company. The list features some truly great businesses so to be ranked alongside them is always a thrill.

“Whilst we experienced a small drop in turnover last year, brought about by a fall in oil prices, the volume of oil we sold outstripped that in 2013 and we grew profits so it was a solid performance to say the least, and we’re delighted that our progress continues to be recognised by the Sunday Times.”
