Fairbanks has announced a renewal of its wetstock management contract for Morrisons’ forecourts, and has also revealed it is extending the range of services it offers.

The new three-year agreement with the supermarket giant covers its network of 314 forecourts and 11 regional distribution centres and is a continuation of a relationship that began in 2008.

As part of the deal it is launching a new service that will monitor Morrisons’ Automatic Tank Gauges (ATG) remotely and oversee a variety of maintenance and repair procedures through its partner company Tokheim.

Fairbanks’ director of UK operations, Michelle King, said: “As the needs of our customers, such as Morrisons, continue to change as their businesses grow we must develop with them. Growing our services to meet the needs of our customers and stay at the very top of our industry. By taking on ATG monitoring for Morrisons we have really demonstrated the versatility of our services to the industry.”

Morrisons’ forecourt operations manager, Ahmed Mulla, commented: “Fairbanks services are vital to our fuel operation, ensuring wetstock integrity and DSEAR compliance delivered through a very committed and professional team.”

King added: “When we first started working with Morrisons we were simply providing them with a DSEAR program but through demonstrating our hard work, commitment and professional customer-focused service over the past four years we have developed our relationship into something much more complete, taking the pressures of wetstock management away from their forecourts so they concentrate on the retail end of the business.”
