Meet Rix

Our story

Our origins date back to 1873 when Merchant Adventurer Robert Rix built ships. Since then, we’ve scaled our operations across the UK, but we’ve always kept our roots firmly placed in Hull.

Now in our 6th generation, we run an extensive range of business activities including oil distribution, renewable energy installations, shipping, warehousing, fuel cards, maritime bunkering - and much more.
