Nobody likes bad news.  However, we say it as it is….. good or bad.

Centaur were established in 1975.  There are few Fuel Management companies who have been around (without ‘restructuring’) as long as we have.

Our enviable client list is testimony to our reputation.

We continue to grow even though 75% of our business is repeat business.


We are a one-stop-shop for all your fuelling needs.

Centaur can satisfy all your fuel management requirements under one roof from our Central location in Manchester.

Don’t deal with multiple suppliers. We can do it all.  Single supplier. Single point of accountability.


We all know that occasionally, projects  don’t go the way we planned.

We pride ourselves in providing clients with a service and workforce that works around your business needs not ours.


The strict quality controls and procedures we have in place at Centaur ensure that you only get the very best Products and Services from Centaur.
