awards and accreditations

In 2021 Sewell on the go, as part of the wider Sewell Group, has been recognised as one of only 18 businesses across the country in the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for Promoting Opportunity – the most prestigious accolade for UK businesses.

In 2009 the Group entered the list and on first attempt, became the first company from Hull to feature in the Top 100. In 2010 the Group rocketed from 45th to 8th before climbing again in 2011 to an outstanding 7th. In 2018, Sewell Group entered the list for a fourth time, ranking number one in Yorkshire and Sewell on the go as the only UK Forecourt operator in the list. In 2020, Sewell Group was given its eighth Best Companies accreditation and fifth appearance on the Sunday Times Top 100 list.

The Forecourt Trader Awards celebrate the leading businesses in the industry. The awards are a measure of the high operating standards and entrepreneurial skills. Sewell beat off stiff competition to be named Forecourt Trader of the Year in 2009 and again in 2016, winning 14 awards overall.

Sewell is currently ranked at 19 in the compilation of the biggest independent fuel retailers in the UK. The division’s success is set to flourish following recent investment in its 13th forecourt, as well as continuing partnerships with coffee favourite Costa and market leading fuel supplier BP.
