Fuel Quality Storage Solutions

Oil Tank Supplies continues to expand its coverage and the scope of products now being offered to support fuel oil distribution and storage applications.

The company was present at two leading trade shows this year – the FPS Expo in Harrogate, for the third year running – and the Facilities Show in Birmingham. The latter being a first for OTS focussing on TankCare as we continue to push out into the tank maintenance and fuel quality service support market.

Products
In the two years since OTS first attended the FPS Expo, the company has set a cracking pace, providing innovative and cost effective solutions for fuel quality conditioning and stock monitoring. These developments have enabled us to widen our scope over a number of market sectors, such as data centres and support facilities using stand-by power generation as well as more traditional makets in transportation and bulk fuel oil distribution facilities.  In this edition of OTS TankTimes, we review some of the latest product and service developments.

Sales team
In order to secure new business opportunities, we have strengthened our front office team with the recruitment of two highly experienced commercial fuelling professionals; Bill Bower as national sales manager and Nick Blanks, project and installations manager.

In addition to these appointments, Nick Hughes takes over from Barrie Hughes as environmental, health and safety manager.  Nick will assist the projects team on technical surveys and he will be responsible for the logistics side of the business.

Business process
In order to ensure we maintain the highest standards of operational efficiency, OTS has invested in a new generation business management software suite.  As an integrated package, this will enable the company to track and manage sales enquiries from first contact through to estimates, project planning, procurement, delivery and invoicing.  Other strategic investments have also been made to introduce mobile computing using  ‘cloud’ technology to support project management.
