NWF Mansfield And Stoke Named Depot Of The Year!
A huge achievement this year as NWF wins the coveted FPS Depot of the Year Award, and also the runner up spot, too!
Oil Distribution Trade Association The Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS ) held its annual exhibition FPS EXPO in Liverpool during April, where our Mansfield Depot was awarded the FPS Depot of the Year. What’s more, our Stoke-on-Trent Depot was runner-up!
NWF Previous Depots Of The Year
Winning is becoming a good habit – our depot in Boston, Lincolnshire won in 2015 and 2017.
Dawn Shakespeare, FPS Marketing Manager said: “We have been impressed by all the depots and the standards they have set again this year. It was a very tight contest between the top three depots but NWF Mansfield depot had the edge over their Stoke depot and we congratulate NWF Fuels on gaining two out of the top three places. NWF Fuels won the award this year because the company is a clear leader in its field, setting the highest of standards when it comes to health and safety, operating procedures and the environment.”
How Depot Of The Year Is Judged
Will Merrick, Regional Manager for our Mansfield Depot explains how the award is judged: “The audit is carried out by the FPS’ Technical Manager, Tony Brown. Tony undertakes an in-depth audit covering fifteen sections including yard and tank storage, health and safety management, transport, and environmental management. In addition he examines how the depot is performing compared to the expected standards in the industry, how in-depth our knowledge of the site and all legal compliance systems is, how up-to-date site maintenance records are and how proactive we are.
“I am very proud of everyone here and was delighted to accept the award on their behalf”.
Mandy Jenkin, Depot Manager for Stoke added: “We always aim to achieve the highest possible standards in everything we do; from operations and transport through to customer service and customer care. We have a fantastic team here and everyone has contributed to achieving our outstanding score; office staff and drivers alike. The award recognises everyone’s continued efforts, and whilst I would prefer to have won, I don’t mind coming second to another NWF Fuels depot on this occasion!”
A massive well done to Will’s team at Mansfield and Mandy’s team at Stoke for their success in this challenging and prestigious event, and it is always encouraging and impressive to hear that we are challenging for the top spot year after year!
