John Wood ·

Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) has appointed a managing director of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Jeroen de Gruijter will report directly to David Crouse, the president of DFS, and will be based in the DFS manufacturing centre in Dundee, Scotland.

This appointment comes after brands such as Tokheim, Wayne Fueling Systems, Fairbanks, ProGauge and OPW FMS, were brought together to create the DFS business in December 2016.

De Gruijter is a mechanical engineer and joins DFS from Xylem, a water equipment manufacturer, where he served as managing director for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa. De Gruijter will be responsible for managing key regions across the EMEA for DFS and shaping the strategic commercial vision.

“Dover Fueling Solutions is comprised of many of the leading brands in the fuel retail market, and our goal is to build on and leverage that strong position,” noted de Gruijter. “We will continue to operate the DFS brands as ‘business as usual’ while aligning the organisation’s efforts and resources to ensure that we enhance business performance and better serve our customers.”

Crouse said: “Jeroen’s experience in implementing market strategy and his knowledge of the business landscape within the EMEA region will be vital as DFS continues to work to deliver to customers worldwide a greater range of choices by providing a combined product portfolio that represents the industry’s only truly global end-to-end fueling solutions and world-class support.”

DFS is part of the Dover conglomerate, and delivers fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management equipment.
