    Crokers Fuel & Oils Pty Ltd was established by James H Croker & Son in 1924 as a distributor for Texas Co (Australia) Ltd using a one horse dray for delivery of tins. Lighting Kerosene was the main product with motor spirits becoming more dominent as vehicles became more popular. Rapid expansion required a larger premises as fuel turnover went from 57,168 gallons to 2,107,947 gallons in 1962. In 1954 Alan Shepherd (Principal of James Croker & Sons) was instrumental in the establishment of the first Caltex Oil Bulk Ocean Terminal at the Mackay Harbour with a storage capacity of 1,500,000 gallons and resulting in a price reduction for our customers.

     

    Working for the company since the 1970's Bruce Shepherd and Kevin Powell guided the company through continued expansion to service a 55,000 km2 area of central Queensland, from St Lawrence (to the south) to Bowen (to the north) and west to Alpha. In 2009 the company had a fleet of 20 tankers and 2 onsite fueling tankers and employed 46 staff and 2 contractors working out of Mackay, Clermont and Proserpine with a turnover of appox. 160 million litres a year.

     

    The company supplies bulk and retail fuel and oils (Caltex, Gulf Western and Recochem) to a broad range of industries including farming, resellers, trucking, mining and manufacturing. As a company we are proud of our level of customer service to all our Crokers and National Caltex customers and this focus on friendly and efficient service has built a strong company with a loyal customer base.
