As part of a long-term ATM services relationship formed earlier this year, Bank Machine will install, own and operate more than 600 free-to-use ATMs at Shell UK company-owned sites by the end of 2012.

All Shell UK company-owned sites supported by Bank Machine will receive ATMs outfitted in Shell colours, and complete with on-screen marketing and receipt couponing functionality. Upon completion of the ATM installation project, Bank Machine will have consolidated multiple ATM services relationships for Shell UK. Additionally, all Bank Machine-owned, Shell UK-located ATMs will be folded into Allpoint Network and its ATM locator immediately upon installation. Allpoint Network is a Cardtronics affiliate and operator of the world’s largest surcharge-free ATM network.

“Backed by Bank Machine’s reputation for integrity, reliability and attractive ATM presentation, Shell UK can move forward with confidence as we consolidate a number of ATM services relationships with Bank Machine,” said David Wood, marketing manager, Shell UK Retail. “Equally, Bank Machine shares our commitment to make the ATMs free-to-use and thereby widely accessible to our customers.”

Ron Delnevo, managing director, Bank Machine, said: “The opportunity for Bank Machine to install ATMs in hundreds of Shell UK locations represents substantial growth for Cardtronics’ UK ATM portfolio, which opened 2012 with a fleet of 3,500 machines. Beyond the numbers, being selected and trusted with consolidating the ATM services offered by a premier global retailer of the magnitude of Shell is a validation of our leadership role among ATM service providers.”
