A REDDITCH service station is in the running to be named best in the county.

The Gulf-branded petrol station on Battens Drive in Winyates has been shortlisted for SuperStation 2017, one of the most prestigious accolades in petrol retailing, open to more than 700 Certas Energy-supplied forecourts across the UK.

Now in its sixth year, SuperStation is a competition designed to drive up standards of customer service, facilities, and presentation.

It culminates with sponsors, leading industry suppliers and finalists in each category gathering together for an awards evening on October 12 Chesford Grange in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Ramsay MacDonald, from Certas Energy, the largest supplier to independent fuel retailers in Britain, congratulated the service station on making the final.

“The standards of our finalists never cease to amaze me,” he said.

“Redditch Service Station is a fine example of the best in petrol retailing and a great ambassador for the Gulf brand. The site thoroughly deserves this recognition which is testament to the hard work and drive of every member of the team there.”

The service station is nominated in the Best Forecourt Team category.
