Gulf Retail wins global award

Launched this week via Facebook – Gulf’s Big Christmas Giveaway has 100 items of Gulf branded merchandise on offer to lucky winners nationwide.  The initiative runs until the end of December
Last month Certas Energy received the accolade of Gulf Oil Best Fuel Partner of the Year from Gulf Oil International at its annual conference in Dubai. The award recognises the work undertaken by Certas Energy to develop and grow its Gulf forecourt network in the UK.
“I’m absolutely delighted that Gulf Retail has been recognised in this way,” said Certas Energy’s retail director, Ramsay MacDonald.
“We continue to work hard to develop the Gulf brand in the UK and ensure that the Gulf proposition appeals to dealers of all sizes. The retail supply market is as competitive and challenging as we’ve ever seen it, with the oil majors now signing sites they would never have previously looked at and the super group dealers squeezing their own margins to drive volumes.
“We’re working hard to differentiate our offer with the support of Gulf Oil International and build brand presence across the UK. Our most recent successes, three flagship sites in the north of England with a combined volume of 13 million litres, are now on stream and in full Gulf imagery. They demonstrate in no uncertain terms the strength of this historic forecourt brand, today and for the future.”
“This award is so well deserved,” said Frank Rutten, vice president international of Gulf Oil International.
“Certas Energy is achieving such great results in spite of the toughness and complexities of the market place. The UK team continues to invest in the Gulf brand and works tirelessly to provide UK dealers with a strong alternative to the traditional forecourt majors.”
Gulf Oil International has fuel station representation in 25 countries across the world and sells lubricants in over 100 countries. Its ongoing investment to support the Gulf brand includes a global partnership with Manchester United.
