Rontec and BP executives have celebrated the start of their new five-year deal to maintain the supply for its network of 51 BP-branded sites.

The deal, which commenced on July 1 and will involve a refresh of the sites over the next few months, is based on the delivery of 250mlpa and has a potential value of £1bn.

The deal followed the merger of Snax 24 into the Rontec business.

Commenting on the fuel agreement, Rontec chairman Bill Ahearn, said: “The group has had a relationship with BP for over 30 years. We are delighted that, following the recent merger of the Rontec and Snax 24 businesses, we have been able to reach this agreement.”

Howard Nunn, BP’s UK sales manager, commented: “Following BP’s recent successes across the dealer market in 2015, this agreement once again demonstrates BP’s commitment to our dealers partners. I am delighted that we have the opportunity to extend this important strategic relationship.”

Matthew Stenson, BP’s strategic account manager, added: “This is an important agreement with Rontec. BP has enjoyed a long partnership with the group. They provide us a strong network, customer offer and have invested heavily in their sites which fits closely with our strategy of having high grade standards alongside a great customer offer.”
