Fuel brand Jet has added 58 sites to its network through a deal with independent forecourt operators Motor Fuel Group (MFG). The new sites arise from MFG’s purchase of Murco’s retail business, and takes the total number of MFG sites supplied by Jet to 68. Three of the new Jet sites are in Scotland: Newton and Glendevon in West Lothian and Abronhill in Cumbernauld, Lanarkshire.
The new five year supply contract will commence on 1st April with all sites due to be branded by the end of May.
Jim Mulheran, Fuels Director at MFG, commented: “We’ve been consistently impressed with how Jet operates and, based on the success of previous contracts and a competitive supply deal, the decision to choose Jet as our supplier for these additional sites was an easy one.”
Pete George, Managing Director of Phillips 66 UK & Ireland Marketing, added: “MFG is without doubt one of the largest and fastest growing independent fuel operators in the UK and as it continues its own expansion plans, we will certainly be delighted to be part of any further growth. We hope that this latest win demonstrates that Jet is a strong supply partner and is 100% committed to the future of the UK fuel retail market.”
Jet plans to have a network of 400 sites by 2018, and this deal takes the current total to over the 350 mark.
