Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
Equipment » Pumps

Remodelling the market

While pumps are a crucial piece of equipment for every forecourt operator, the market had attracted very little scrutiny from outside the industry until a major upheaval during 2016. The year began with a US conglomerate, Dover Corporation, taking over the product divisions of Tokheim Group, which makes dispensers and electronic equipment. This meant it owned one of the big three manufacturers of pumps sold in the UK market, although Tokheim Solutions UK, which is the exclusive distributor in the UK, remained a separate company.

Kärcher and Tokheim Service Group form a strategic partnership

Kärcher and Tokheim Service Group (TSG) have come to an agreement to form a strategic partnership, by which the cleaning specialist and the provider of services and fuel retailing solutions will join forces in the car wash industry.

Get your fill

As competition in the forecourt sector grows ever more intense, growing numbers of dealers are doing the sums on replacing their old pumps and deciding it's the right option.
