Harvest Energy has announced a five year motor fuel supply and branding agreement with the 16 forecourt Cornwall Garage Group. The Cornwall Group’s sites stretch from the West Country into Sussex, London and the Home Counties and into the Midlands.
Each of the sites is being rebranded with Harvest Energy’s distinctive white, blue and green livery. The agreement means that Harvest Energy now supplies more than 60 independent forecourts across the length and breadth of Britain.
The Cornwall Garage Group began as one outlet in Hatch End, Middlesex. It was set-up in the early 1960’s by John Murray, now in his 80s and still the main owner and MD. John explains
“I was originally a professional ice hockey player for the Wembley Lions. When I retired I looked for a business to get into and bought the garage and forecourt at Hatch End. I never looked back and at one point had 41 outlets before consolidating a few years back.”
Describing the agreement with Harvest Energy, John said “I like their people and I particularly like their enthusiasm. They’re going to do well and we’ll do well working with them.”
Simon Davis, Harvest Energy’s Head of Sales and Logistics, commented “We are very pleased to have signed this agreement with the Cornwall Garage Group. It’s a long-standing company with an excellent reputation and we are delighted their 16 sites will soon be displaying the Harvest Energy brand.”
In all, Harvest Energy now supplies over 10% of Britain’s road fuels from depots across the country, including from its own storage terminals at West Thurrock, Seal Sands and Grangemouth.
