LEADING INDEPENDENT PETROL RETAILER WINS MANCHESTER AIRPORT CONTRACT Wednesday 2 July 2008 PDF Print LEADING INDEPENDENT PETROL RETAILER WINS MANCHESTER AIRPORT CONTRACT Manor Service Stations, one of the largest independent petrol retailers in the UK, has won the hotly contested contract to run the two service stations at Manchester Airport. The two sites, at Terminals One and Two, shall be run for ten years by Manor Service Stations, a Macclesfield-based business, and will become two of the busiest sites in the company's portfolio. Manor Service Stations won the contract after Manchester Airport Group decided that a specialist petrol retailer would be able to operate the stations with greater efficiency. Both sites will continue to be supplied with fuel from BP and Manor Service Stations intend to spend over £100,000 on refurbishments. The main site at Terminal One will be converted into a BP Connect franchise. Peter Brough, the Managing Director of Manor Service Stations, comments, "This is a significant contract for Manor Service Stations and we are delighted to have been recognised as one of the leading operators in the country. We look forward to a successful relationship with Manchester Airport and, ultimately, giving the highest quality service to those customers visiting these sites." There were a number of bidders for the contract to run the service stations at Manchester Airport with submissions having to include an equal opportunity policy, objectives for the sites, and the company's environmental policy. Joe Brough, a director of Manor Service Stations, comments, "Our depth of experience was a key factor to winning the bid. We have a proven record in the petrol retail industry and would put ourselves forward again for similar contracts where businesses operating service stations not as a core business need expert knowledge and ability to maximise their efficiency." The two service stations started operating under Manor Service Stations on 2nd June 2008.
