Penny Petroleum has chosen Jet as the fuel supplier for its Kirkmuirhill Service Station in Lanark. 

Since Penny Petroleum bought the village site in March this year, Kirkmuirhill Service Station has been reimaged with Jet’s latest brand on the canopy, stanchion, pumps and polesign. The site now incorporates food-to-go from local baker Aulds, a Costa Express, a large off-licence, a wide range of fresh food, a slush machine and customer toilet. Two jet washes, along with the air and vac facilities, have also recently been upgraded.

Over the next six months, Penny Petroleum plans to invest over £250k on improving the shop interior and installing new pumps. Lottery and Paypoint will also be added shortly.

David Penny, owner of Penny Petroleum, said: “We decided to switch from the existing supplier to Jet, as Jet offered a competitive deal and the brand image is bright and fresh, which is just what the site needed as it was looking quite tired and outdated. Also, we chose Spar as our symbol group for the site, and felt that the Jet and Spar brands complemented each other well.

Gary Conway, Retail Accounts Manager at Jet, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Kirkmuirhill to our Scottish network and look forward to seeing the site go from strength to strength with the backing of our Jet brand.”
