Exol Pride braves all weathers

Exol has been praised for its “sterling efforts” to keep operating along the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation during the winter floods.

The company’s barge Exol Pride was singled out by Waterways World magazine for making its weekly 400-ton delivery from Hull to Exol’s bulk blending plant at Rotherham’s Stevenson Wharf.

Exol has been a long term user of the waterways, leading the oil and lubricants market by using an environmentally friendly option while transporting large loads. The company has been commended for its reduction in carbon footprint and has even featured in ITV’s Barging about Britain, hosted by John Sergeant.

Both Exol’s bulk blending plant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and Head Office in Wednesbury, West Midlands are ISO-14001 accredited having successfully implemented an effective ‘Integrated Management System’, which focuses on reducing, reusing and recycling waste, as well as using energy efficiently.
