Ascona Group has appointed Suresite to provide wet-stock management across its UK forecourts. Ascona Group is currently undertaking a major programme of investment that could increase its forecourt operation from six to 20 sites over the next 12 months.

Darren Briggs, managing director, Ascona Group, said: "In our opinion, the Suresite wet-stock management solution is the best available and it makes good business sense to enter this partnership as we expand our operation.

"If not properly monitored, wet-stock losses can become one of the largest overheads for any forecourt business. We now have the peace of mind that our wet-stock management is in very safe hands. Leaks, product theft or water contamination can be immediately detected and expert advice is just a phone call away."

"We are delighted to be part of the Ascona Group success story as it rapidly expands its forecourt retailing network," said Dan Gibson, wet-stock manager, Suresite.
