Harvest Energy has announced a five-year motor fuel supply and branding agreement with the 16-forecourt Cornwall Garage Group.

The group’s sites stretch from the West Country into Sussex, London, 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 deal means that Harvest Energy now supplies more than 60 independent forecourts across the UK. The Cornwall Garage Group began as one outlet in Hatch End, Middlesex. It was set-up in the early 1960s by John Murray, now in his 80s and still the main owner and MD. At one point the group had 41 outlets before consolidating a few years ago. 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."
