Featured Sponsor: McFall Fuel

8 May 2019

McFall Fuel is a committed & dedicated family fuel & lubricant distribution business.

McFall Fuel has developed great relationships with people at all levels of the forestry industry. We are a family business who take great pride in our exceptional customer service, the quality products we offer, and our ability to meet the needs of the sector. As a fuel and lubricant distributor, we go to where our customers are to service them. We have a strong package that we can offer forestry customers from a range of tanks, to lubricants to meet the needs of all equipment, plus paint, and of course the fuel.

One of our drivers who has been involved in the fuel industry for over 51 years said with a huge smile “I just love it and have learned so much from the forestry customers over the past 8 years. The customers are just so happy to see you and the banter we have is always fun. But at the same time, we are very conscious of what we need to do, to work together, and how we are going to get the job done. My job is to follow the processes expected of a fuel delivery driver and I do that with pride. In our business doing things right is essential. The roads travelled are tarseal, metal, or a track that may lead you up and down hills and with radios, everyone knows where everyone is. I prefer forestry deliveries and have never been happier.”

“Our much-prized Zero Harm value – no harm to people, no harm to the environment, and no accidents see us agree on safe working practices with our customers and also the collection of the empty 20-litre lubricant containers to look after the environment. As a family business, we know how important that we all get our teams home to our families safely every day,” Managing Director Allan McFall. “We all enjoy working with our forestry customers with some of them having been with us for over 12 years.”
