Following a successful store trial, Brobot Petroleum, the forecourt retailer with 21 sites in the East Midlands and Yorkshire, has confirmed Londis as its long-term retail partner, which is expected to achieve annual turnover of more than

£10 million.

Steve Lucas, Londis sales director, said: “We are delighted that Brobot Petroleum has chosen Londis. These are challenging economic times and we will continue to strengthen our offer to Londis retailers, putting our retail partners at the heart of all that we do.”

Eddie Bright Brobot sales director, commented: “We had a long and successful relationship with our previous supplier, but market changes required a new direction for Brobot to enhance our shop offer to meet customer demands and after much research decided Londis most suited our requirements.  The transition was made seamlessly and the emphasis between our companies is based on partnership.  Londis also bring a wealth of expertise in store development and infrastructure that compliments our business providing Brobot with the opportunities to grow and meet the challenges of future forecourt retailing.”

Brobot Petroleum is a family owned business with interests in forecourt retail and also as a major fuel distributor within the Midlands area. The 21 retail sites all convert to Londis this month.
