About Us

The now Bensons Products Ltd was formerly Bensons UK Ltd, set up by Neil Holcroft as a collection business for used cooking oil in 1995, based in Southport. A few years later the decision was made to expand and start processing on the site.
The used cooking oil was supplied primarily to the Animal Feed Industry, but under the Animal By-Products Regulations (2003), the use of cooking oils in animal feed was banned in the UK, and no longer permitted. The UK was awarded derogation until November 2004, to allow the phasing out of its use, and to explore other avenues, which resulted in the end product being sold for technical use in the Bio Fuel Industry.
As a result of changes to the market the site in Southport was deemed too small for expansion, and expensive to rent, so alternative premises were sought. A site at Widnes was purchased and received considerable investment in new machinery, office and warehouse facilities, as well as creating new jobs.
The redevelopment is on-going and recent purchases include: two tricanters for the extraction of as much used cooking oil as possible, a new shredding machine, a number of new HGV vehicles and two vacuum tankers for the suction of oil out of the oil storage tanks that are placed around the country.
