PRA CHAIRMAN PETER BROUGH HAS WON THE CONTRACT for his company Manor Service Stations to run the forecourts at Manchester Airport.
Manor Service Stations is one of the largest independent petrol retailers in the UK and got the contract after beating off tough competition to win the deal. The Manchester Airport Group opted for Manor Service Stations after deciding that as a specialist petrol retailer they would be best placed to operate the two airport sites with the greatest efficiency.
The contract involves the sites at the Airport’s Terminals One and Two. Each will now be run for the next 10 years by Manor Service Stations and will be two of the busiest sites in the company’s portfolio of forecourts. Manor Service Stations plan to start the contract by spending more than £100,000 on refurbishments. Both sites will continue to be supplied by fuel from BP, with the main Terminal One site
being converted into a BP Connect franchise.
Peter Brough, Managing Director of Manor Service Stations, said: “This is a significant contract for us and we are delighted to have been recognised as one of the leading operators in the country. We now look forward to a successful relationship with Manchester Airport and, ultimately, to giving the highest quality
service to those customers visiting these sites.”
Manor Service Stations Director Joe Brough said: “Our depth of experience was a key factor to winning the bid. We have a proven track 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.” Manchester Airport Group was particularly impressed by Manor Service Stations’ environmental and equal opportunity policies, as well as by its plans and objectives for the sites.
Macclesfield-based Manor Service Stations has been running service stations in the North West of England for almost 30 years. Formerly known as Goldchair Ltd., the company now employs more than 60 people and operates 12 service stations
