In 1956, Bell’s were appointed a Calor Gas Dealer, operating initially from the company’s Gold Street premises. As sales increased and the business grew, it soon became impossible to operate from the limited space available and in October 1977, the Calor Gas operation moved to the Kingsthorpe site. In the early days, business tended to come from village areas without a mains gas supply. Sales increased in the mid 70’s with the advent of the National Electricity power cuts and A.Bell & Company was appointed a Main Dealer, responsible for distributing gas to various outlets. In particular, winter heating in factories and the use of Calor gas to operate forklift trucks developed into a major part of sales. This was enhanced in recent years by the increase in mobile food caravans, boats and canals and rivers, barbecues and local events such as the Northampton Balloon Festival held at Abington Park.
Here at Bell our aim is to keep everything as simple as we can for our customers. Minimising the amount of paperwork and legalities. However, there are a few processes which need formalising, one of which is cylinder refills and returns. When you buy a gas cylinder from us, you’ll be asked to sign a copy of the Calor Cylinder Refill Agreement. Please spend a few minutes familiarising yourself with it to make sure that you understand exactly what the agreement covers and that you’re happy with the terms. This agreement is there for safety and to ensure you can simply return the empty one in good condition and exchange for a full bottle. If you have no further need for the cylinder simply return to us and receive a partial refund on the cost of the refill agreement. This is based on a sliding scale, dependant on length of time the agreement has been in effect.
