Rix Renewables is part of the JR Rix & Sons group of companies. Founded in 1873, JR Rix & Sons is a 5th generation family-owned business involved in a large range of activities ranging from commercial, residential, industrial and marine fuel distribution, fuel cards, ship owning, stevedoring, warehousing and offshore wind support to holiday home manufacturing, car retail and property, through a number of subsidiaries of which the largest is Rix Petroleum Ltd.
The success story started in 1927 with Robert Rix and Sons importing tractor vaporising oil for the post-war agricultural revolution. Lamp oil, packed in oak casks was also carried from Russia to the Humber on Rix ships. In 1939 Rix owned eleven shops spread between four companies.
Today JR Rix & Sons are operating a fleet of ships, including tankers, barges and crew transfer vessels. We also have a substantial land and warehousing operation in the Port of Montrose and near King George Dock, in Hull.
Now with Rix Renewables, we aim to streamline both procurement procedures and operational management for wind farm construction and maintenance. Working towards a better future.
