Our mission at Smith Fuel Services Ltd is to represent Husky Energy as a good corporate citizen, ensuring a commitment to good customer relationships, environmental protection and a proud image in our community.
Smith Fuel Services Ltd has operated as a locally owned business in the Fort St. John area for some 36 years. Currently owned and operated by David Smith, the business was established in 1976 by his father, Mike Smith, a longtime resident of Fort St. John.
"Dad started the business in '76 with one truck," said David. When Fort St. John went through tough times in the early 1980s, Mike continued to seek out new customers and markets, temporarily downsizing until markets improved.
David was involved in the business from the very beginning, becoming actively involved around 1979 when he began driving trucks and performing mechanical duties during the winter months. In 1985, David began working full-time for the business, starting at the bottom and working his way up to the office. Ten years later, in 1995, he purchased the business from Mike, and Smith Fuel Services Ltd is running more efficiently than ever today.
What We Do
Smith Fuel Services primarily supplies bulk fuel to the oil patch, farmers and loggers but also supplies Chevron lubricants, VP Racing Fuels and tank sales and rentals. Here’s what we’re doing lately:
"Our service and longevity are the reasons clients keep coming back," said David. "We've been here longer than any other bulk plant or agent in the area, and people like stability.”
