Newmains forecourt gets £75k upgrade

Jet Cooper Brothers

Jet Cooper Brothers in Newmains, Lanarkshire has celebrated its 50th anniversary with a large-scale £75,000 redevelopment.

Five new Tokheim Quantium 510 fuel pumps and a high-speed diesel pump for HGVs were installed, alongside upgraded tank gauging. The site was also reimaged in the latest Jet branding.

A further £30,000 will be invested in changing the forecourt layout and adding additional parking spaces.

The store, which operates under the Mace fascia, was stripped out and given a re-lay. Two new open dairy deck fridges, a new counter area with a chiller filled with luxury fresh cakes from Aulds Bakery and a Costa Coffee machine were added. A Lottery terminal is in the pipeline.

The site remained open throughout the 2.5-week-long renovation, which was carried out by local tradesmen.

Cooper Brothers has also recently signed a new five year retie contract with Jet and seen a rise in fuel volumes.

Garry Gibson, Head of Operations at Cooper Brothers, said: “Our volumes had already increased by 0.5mlpa during the year prior to the work and we’re anticipating this will rise further over the coming months.

“Jet has been our supplier for 13 years now and although competing suppliers approached us when we were nearing the end of our last contract, Jet’s strong offer and fuel deliveries swayed us. A two-hour delivery slot and 20-minute warning for tanker delivery is worth its weight in gold. The routing and order taking from the Jet scheduling team at EWA is also first class.”
