Greenergy has signed a deal with Esso Petroleum UK to become the fuel supplier to Esso dealerships in the Midlands, the south of England and South Wales.

Greenergy has been a branded wholesaler for Esso since February last year, when it took over fuel supply to Esso dealerships in the north of England, North Wales and Scotland. At that time, Greenergy also gained the right to market the Esso brand to independent forecourts, offering fuel supply under the Esso brand alongside its other brand options.

Greenergy chief executive, Andrew Owens, said: "The extension of this contract recognises the success of the original transfer.

"We look forward to bringing Greenergy levels of customer responsiveness, service and reliability to our new customers."

Duncan Connolly, Esso’s UK retail director, said: "This agreement marks the latest stage in the development of the Esso brand in the UK and builds on a similar arrangement in northern Britain."
