Pinnock Brothers remains your reliable source for red diesel supply, ensuring your business activities continue without interruption.

However, it's important to note that industries not listed in the aforementioned categories, such as construction, transport, manufacturing, and logistics, will no longer be able to purchase or use red diesel starting from April 1st, 2022. If your business falls under these industries, you must also ensure that your existing stock of red diesel is used before this date, as there is no grace period provided for using up existing stock.
