In 2008, on the back of successful growth in the South Island, Southfuels launched its sub brand Northfuels in the North Island. The company is now a national bulk distributor of fuel to the Primary Sector and utilises a sustainable business model to provide simple end to end solutions for customers from Kaitaia to Bluff.
