Forecourt improvements to drive growth at MFG

04 May, 2012

After only four months in his role as managing director at Top 50 Indie Motor Fuel Group (MFG), Jeremy Clarke is taking significant steps to improve the management and profitability of his group’s 48-site network.

In the past few weeks MFG has signed three contracts with Istobal, Gilbarco Veeder-Root and Fairbanks, all resulting from MFG’s desire to improve their forecourt offering to customers and provide MFG with much better forecourt maintenance and management services.

Istobal has been awarded a three-year contract to maintain all of MFG’s existing valeting, vacuum and air/water equipment, provide a chemical top-up service and, when required, replace old or obsolete equipment with latest specification Istobal units.

Another three-year contract has been awarded to Gilbarco Veeder-Root to provide pump and gauge maintenance cover and, in addition, to supply pumps and gauges in line with MFG’s forecourt upgrade plans. The first orders have already been placed.

Finally, an agreement has been signed with Fairbanks to provide wetstock management and loss prevention services. A full meter audit across every forecourt in the company has already taken place as well as implementing their automated fuel ordering service; further assisting the management of MFG’s petrol forecourts.

Jeremy Clarke, managing director of MFG, said: “It is vitally important for us in these early days of our business to put in place key relationships that will bring management benefits to us and service benefits to our customers. These three contracts are part of the aggressive growth plans that we have for this company.”
