Long-standing JET dealer signs new deal taking fuel partnership to 50 years

One of JET’s longest standing dealer sites, 4 Elms, has re-signed with the Phillips 66 fuel brand nearly 50 years since first coming on board.

New deal marks almost 50 years in yellow and blue for long-standing JET distributor

The re-signing follows major works recently carried out at 4 Elms in Chattenden, Kent. Both the North and South sites have undergone a major rebrand as part of the refurbishment which also includes tank relining and the introduction of new JET ULTRA Premium Unleaded fuel.

Half a century in yellow and blue

Dating back to 1966, the site was originally purchased by Gordon Dearnaley and became a JET site ten years later. Since then, 4 Elms has seen a number of changes including being split into two to make way for a new road running directly through the site. Today, 4 Elms remains a family business and is now run by Gordon’s son, Robert Dearnaley.

“We take pride in the strong relationships we’ve built with our dealer sites and so we’re thrilled that Robert and the 4 Elms team have chosen to remain with JET after nearly half a century in yellow and blue,” says Chris Murphy, retail account manager, South East, Phillips 66 Limited.

“Here’s to many more happy years and the evolution of a key site that continues to thrive and grow.”

Commenting on the re-signing Robert Dearnaley, the managing director of 4 Elms says: “We have a long, successful and happy history with JET and are extremely pleased to have signed a new deal. We look forward to ongoing success and being the best we can for our customers.”
