The new 32 tonne tanker was proudly exhibited at the FPS Show by WP Group and tanker manufacturer Magyar. It comprises a 5 compartment Magyar Tank on an 8 wheel MAN chassis and is capable of carrying and supplying more than 22,000 litres. The annual FPS Show is the premier trade event for the Fuel Industry in the UK and Ireland, attracting major oil companies, distributors and suppliers throughout the nation and Europe. WP Group’s entire Board of Directors and Senior Managers attended, including Chairman Barry Fairchild who celebrates half a century in the oil business next year.
Barry stated; “Tankers have changed a lot during my time in the industry but the investment we make in the latest technology and tanker design means we can offer an efficient more reliable service to our customers. It also looks fantastic doesn’t it?”
The company received many favourable comments during the show but the best had to be “The Star of the Show”. Graham Baker of Magyar Tankers stated that both the WP Group tankers exhibited developed a great deal of interest. The second tanker, the new Baby Tanker, was exhibited outside the Harrogate International Centre. Due to the inclement weather it did not get quite the attention of her larger sister but still caught the eye and attentions of the visitors. Many of WP Group’s domestic customers see her out and about during the winter months delivering to properties with difficult or restricted access. She will also be seen at further events during the summer months including Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Baby Tanker is already back to working hard on domestic oil deliveries and the new 32 tonne tanker will be on the road in early May after completing ADR Certification, so keep an eye out for her in the South of England.
WP Group is proud to continue expanding its fleet by investing in the highest quality tankers available, to bring customers the best possible service.
