Brulines Group plc this week announced it had completed the acquisition of Energy Level Systems Ltd (ELS), the UK distributor of OPW Fuel Management
Systems tank gauging solutions based in Market Harborough.
The real time monitoring systems and data management services company bought ELS from Astoncrest Consultants Limited.
According to Brulines, ELS was established in December 2008 to acquire the OPW Fuel Management Systems distributorship, which it successfully achieved in February 2009. Immediately prior to completion of the acquisition, ELS acquired the tank lining, liquefied petroleum gas and forecourt services businesses of Graphite UK Ltd., also based in Market Harborough.
Richard Quarmby, majority shareholder of Astoncrest and former vice president of Torex’s Petrol and Convenience Division, is joining Brulines’ Forecourt Service Division as business development director, reporting to Phil Maud, Managing Director.
Maud said Brulines aimed to become a market leader in the provision of telemetry, data management, analysis, and associated software and support services to the petrol forecourt sector.
Meanwhile, Brulines added that Edensure, which it bought in 2008, was to enter into a strategic partnership to provide data management and analysis solutions including wet stock management for forecourt customers of Indigo Retail Technology Ltd. This will initially result in Edensure providing wet stock analysis for Indigo customers, which will increase the penetration of Edensure’s wet stock management to 7% of all UK forecourts.
