Northern exposure

FRANCIS Street Services in Wick has been rebranded after its owner Simpson Oils signed a supply contract for Jet fuel.

The 16-nozzle site is now Jet’s second most northerly site in the UK, behind another Simpson Oils’ site, Ormlie Filling Station in Thurso.

Hugh Simpson, director of Simpson Oils, said: “Having been a Phillips 66 wholesale distributor since 2009, our decision to appoint Jet as our supplier for our first venture into forecourt retailing with Ormlie felt like a natural progression. And it was certainly the right decision as we’ve been very impressed with all aspects of Jet’s supply package and the positive impact the fuel brand has had on our retail business.”
