About Forest Fuels Ltd

Forest Fuels are leading suppliers of biomass fuel and maintenance to commercial, domestic and public sector customers. The company also takes part in the boiler buy-back scheme, taking on the operational risk of customers' boilers and selling them heat on-the-meter.

Since their establishment in 2006, Forest Fuels have expanded to eight offices and 40 depots across the UK.

Led by Managing Director Peter Solly, the company’s primary purpose is being the market leading supplier of quality biomass wood fuel, with excellent customer service.

The business is dedicated to providing a great place to work for its staff, and one example of this is seen in how seriously it takes the wellbeing of staff. Forest and Fuel aim to reduce stress levels by offering flexible working hours, and working parents are also supported with no requirement to use annual holiday leave to attend school plays or sports days.
