Jet has increased its presence in north-east England through new contracts with Penny Petroleum that have seen seven new sites join the network and a further three sites sign retie deals.

Penny Petroleum has a portfolio of 25 retail sites, with the majority in the north of England, and was ranked 12th in the 2014 Forecourt Trader Top 50 Indies.  It has operated three sites under the Jet brand since 2009 and when it recently acquired seven new sites, it was decided to move them across to Jet too.

With the three original Jet-branded sites having recently signed reties, Penny Petroleum now has 10 of its forecourts under the Jet brand. These sites have a combined fuel volume of 30 million litres annually and are supplied by Phillips 66 from Teesside terminal. All 10 sites have been re-imaged in the new Jet livery.

David Penny, owner of Penny Petroleum, commented: "I’ve worked with Jet for five years now and have always found them really easy to deal with and very flexible in terms of meeting my needs as a business owner.

"The three sites that we already had with Jet were performing very well, so when choosing a brand for the other sites, it was an easy decision to go with Jet."

He added: "Jet has always had a strong reputation in terms of security of supply and also demonstrates a flexible approach to pricing. The delivery service is excellent."
