Providing Quality Service for over 60 Years

The Tincknell Group is a family run business now in it's 4th generation of Management.

The business was initially established in the small Mid Somerset City of Wells in 1925 by Robert Tincknell to meet the needs of the local farming community for general blacksmithing and ironmongery products. By 1935 when Frank Tincknell joined his father as a partner of R Tincknell & Son, the business had grown steadily and employed 12 people trading and repairing agricultural machinery.

In 1954 the company also acquired a distributorship for petroleum products for Shell Mex and BP Ltd for a limited area within a 15 mile radius of Wells, and Tincknell Fuels was formed.

The Depot in Southover, Wells was fed by the railways in those days and has undergone significant improvements.

The business served the local farming community and with the advent of domestic central heating, served this fast growing sector, not only with oil but also with servicing and installation of central heating systems and boilers.

In 1969 Philip Tincknell joined the Company and is the Chairman today. His children Robert & Diana, the fourth generation, joined the Company in 1995 & 2006 respectively. Both Robert and Diana are now directors alongside Rob Ormond.

Our tankers can now be seen across the South West, delivering in Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Avon and South Gloucestershire. Heating Services have a team of high qualified engineers that provide boiler and cooker servicing, tank replacements, boiler installations and plumbing for both oil and gas fired systems, across this area.
